Lake Tahoe - Where California and Nevada Meet
Positioned in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of the United States, Lake Tahoe is one of the country's largest freshwater lakes and is a popular destination all year round. It is the largest alpine lake, and second-deepest in North America, at an impressive 1,945 feet deep.
The lake itself is located along the border between California and Nevada, just west of Carson City. It is known for the clarity of its water and its gorgeous panorama of surrounding mountain ranges. It is also home to a large handful of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation activities and multiple tourist attractions.
Lake Tahoe is often referred to as the perfect year round destination, boasting never-ending idyllic weather. Tahoe boasts 300 days of warm sunshine each year, making summer an excellent time to visit. Choose to bike around the lake, kayak or canoe across its crystal clear waters, or become familiar with the thrills and spills of a jet ski.
During the winter months the area becomes a hive of activity with avid skiers and those seeking fun in the snow. Each year brings with it copious amounts of snow, creating a winter wonderland that never fails to disappoint visitors. Popular ski resorts include Sugar Bowl, Alpine Meadows and Diamond Peak, which all boast fantastic opportunities for skiers and snow boarders.
The nightlife in these parts is another major attraction of the area.
