Lake Tahoe features the largest concentration of cross country ski areas in North America. Backcountry ski enthusiasts can access thousands of vertical feet of open terrain whether steps from the car or miles into the backcountry.
There is something about being outside after a snowstorm in North Lake Tahoe – the sun catching on curtains of flakes that drift off snow-laden branches, the soft slither of Nordic skis packing down powder – beyond magical.
