Tahoe South is where you’ll find Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America; deep and wide, bluer than blue, and surrounded by the majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s an alpine paradise filled with wild places, a winter wonderland November through April, followed by a gorgeous mountain spring, beautiful summer, and crisp fall. It has an average 300 days of sunshine each and every year. South Lake Tahoe offers spectacular scenery up with a gigantic helping of things to do year-round, including winter sports and water sports, blackjack and bike trails, family fun and nightlife, all with a unique, Tahoe spin.
