Though winter is often seen as North Lake Tahoe’s top season for sports, the fact is that human-powered sports are available yearlong. Tahoe’s unique situation along the Sierra Nevada means that during the shoulder seasons, you can experience a true “Dual-Sport Day”—hitting the slopes in the morning and exploring Tahoe’s countless bike paths, lakeside or hiking trails in the afternoon.

North Lake Tahoe is unique in that it offers travelers the opportunity to experience snow and sunshine in one day. That means twice the adventure and half the travel.

2. Lush Landscapes and Lake Shores Will Clear Your Mind

While North Lake Tahoe’s sporting options will strengthen your body, the region’s natural beauty will soothe your soul. More than 274 days of sunshine each year make for the perfect condition to view Tahoe’s vistas and endless waters from any vantage point.

When you’re ready to get away from it all to refresh, recharge and recalibrate, Tahoe is the place to be. For water lovers, the “blue mind” effect you’ll get from gazing into Tahoe’s waters will guide you into a meditative state. Meanwhile, for climbers, hikers and snowshoers alike: there is no site quite like the panoramic view of Lake Tahoe from the Sierra Nevada’s snowy peaks. These, alongside North Lake Tahoe’s unmatched wellness experiences will leave every visitor feeling refreshed and centered.
