South Lake Tahoe
Whether you choose to go downhill skiing or snowboarding at Heavenly, Kirkwood or Sierra-at-Tahoe or prefer cross-country skiing, a Tahoe South vacation will put you close to it all. If you want to enjoy the nightlife or gambling on the Nevada side, you can stay in town. Take a break from the slopes to ride the Gondola to the top of Heavenly or take a romantic sleigh ride in the snow. With the backdrop of pristine Lake Tahoe, Tahoe South is an idyllic place to visit any time of year.
