It’s in our nature to make the most of life, to step outside of the day-to-day, experience the new and seize every minute. In North Lake Tahoe, our nature enhances your natural instincts—a place that elevates all of life’s moments. On a crystal blue shoreline or towering mountain, connect with nature, clear your mind and uplift your spirit. Breathe life, naturally elevated. There is so much variety here you can fill your days with peak experiences. Jaw dropping scenery, wildlife, alpine forests, state parks, historic estates and modern resorts—North Lake Tahoe takes vacation variety to new heights. Or tune it all down; find a cabin in the woods where the quiet is interrupted only by the wind in the trees and bird-song. North Tahoe sweeps in a 180-degree arc around Lake Tahoe’s pristine water, extending from Incline Village in Nevada to famous Emerald Bay. Diverse towns and resorts along its shoreline offer a myriad of opportunities to enjoy carefree freedom, all set against one of the world’s largest alpine lakes.

Winter in North Lake Tahoe

(OPPOSITE PAGE) ©JACLYN REAM; (THIS PAGE) ©DAMIRCUDIC /ISTOCK

Lake Tahoe in winter, ringed by snow under a blue sky, is achingly lovely, the contrast made more brilliant by the lake’s deep blue. Spectacular winter weather creates this magic: plentiful sunshine paired with 20 to 30 feet of average annual snowfall. Passion for winter sports runs deep here. Scandinavian prospectors brought skiing to these mountains in the 1850s, conducting America’s first organized ski races. On mountains just north of Tahoe, miners rode what is considered the world’s first ski lift—ore buckets hanging from a cable. The 1931 U.S. National Ski Jumping Championships were held in Tahoe City at the present site of Granlibakken Resort. Downhill ski resorts got their start here in 1939 with the opening of Sugar Bowl. Skiing and other winter sports continued to thrive in North Tahoe, leading to the hosting of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games at Squaw Valley. Twenty-some years later, locals embraced what was the newest winter sport and built the world’s first snowboard half-pipe behind Tahoe City.

GoTahoeNorth.com 5


The Greater North Tahoe area now boasts 11 downhill ski and snowboard resorts and six cross-country ski/ snowshoe areas. What makes all this variety even more intriguing is that each resort has its own distinct character.

Whatever your chosen activity—or lack of activity—great meals will be waiting close by. Unique and creative restaurants, bars and delis are scattered throughout North Lake Tahoe, many with enchanting lake views. Start your après-ski right at the base of the slopes. To heat up the winter night, head for dancing and live music at Crystal Bay casinos. Or dance with Lady Luck at the gaming tables or slot machines. Or just curl up in front of a fire and save your energy for the new morning and another magical winter day in North Lake Tahoe.

Go for high-octane fun on a snowmobile tour along a high mountain ridge. Or kick back and keep it simple at a ski-in, ski-out lodge, steps away from the slopes. Tone it down even further and head for a romantic cabin in the woods, snowshoe trails outside.

Spring in North Lake Tahoe

Springtime in North Lake Tahoe brings together the perfect blend of adventure, experiences and relaxation. This is the season for dual, or even tri-sport days. North Tahoe’s spring skiing and riding is universally recognized as some of the best on the planet, with many resorts staying open into April and some even into May! Backcountry enthusiasts have an almost unending variety of slopes and peaks to “bag.” Slide the spring snowpack in the morning, enjoy a paddle on Lake Tahoe mid-day, then play a round of disc golf or sink a putt at golf links that open in March, just down the hill in Carson Valley. Or get some much needed relaxation in and absorb the views of snow-capped mountains, sunny skies and clear blue water from a restaurant deck or after a short hike to Eagle Rock. From May through June, fields of wild flowers erupt in color under mountain peaks and along the lakeshore. In the evenings, signature familyfriendly events such as WinterWonderGrass fill the clear air with live music and dancing. Spring in North Lake Tahoe is definitely a treasured season.

Summer in North Lake Tahoe

It’s human nature to love Tahoe in summer. To start, practically perfect weather (in every way)—low humidity, sunny days and clear, starry nights. Days are warm but not hot, nights are cool and refreshing. North Lake Tahoe boasts hundreds of miles of scenic trails through vast forests, wilderness areas and alpine lakes. Sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail around the North Shore follow crestline, peak-topping routes and provide 360-degree views. The Flume Trail is one of the mountain biking world’s most famous rides, but it’s just part of the amazing network of single-track trails found here. For long, lift-served downhills, head to Northstar California’s Mountain Bike Park. Prefer a paved route? Go for a relaxed ride on the scenic bike trail that runs along the Truckee River from Squaw Valley to Tahoe City. From there, the trail heads south along the West Shore to Sugar Pine Point State Park. 10 GoTahoeNorth.com

Visitors have been falling in love with Tahoe summers for a century and a half. Tahoe City was the gateway to Lake Tahoe from the mid-1800s through the early 1900s, the well-to-do staying at the famous Tahoe Tavern resort or departing on steamboats to nearby lodges, marinas and estates.

Lake Tahoe is a paradise of water sports, with paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet-skiing, fishing and swimming. Power through the lake on a kayak, or glide atop the aquamarine water on a stand-up paddleboard. For a laid-back water experience, step onboard a cruise along the shoreline to Emerald Bay, or try a fishing charter on a calm morning. Rafting the Truckee River is popular with all ages. Go it alone or with the convenience of one of the rafting companies in Tahoe City. Tahoe’s blue waters offer plenty of activity, but so do Tahoe’s greens. Golf courses include relaxed 9-hole circuits in Kings Beach and Tahoe City and championship courses in Incline Village, Northstar and Squaw Valley. Additional courses in Truckee and nearby Carson Valley feature the designs of world-renowned golf architects. Whether it’s paddling along welcoming stretches of sun-soaked sand, toasting the day at a lakefront restaurant or enjoying an evening stroll under a brilliant, star-filled sky, summer days at North Lake Tahoe are much too special to be missed.

The music and festival scene is a year-round celebration in North Lake Tahoe. During summer, enjoy a free concert series at scenic venues from the lake’s shore to mountain peaks. Lovers of classical music flock to Classic Tahoe in Incline in early August; in mid-August, they enjoy concerts at various locations during the Lake Tahoe Summer Music Festival.

Human talent and nature’s bounty combine in diverse and delicious ways in North Lake Tahoe: gourmet restaurants to family-value menus to fun brew pubs and bars.

European chefs were first attracted to this area by the 1960 Winter Olympic Games, and new waves of culinary talent have established restaurants here ever since.

Wonderful West Shore In 1909, Arthur Jost built a small pier and hotel in a sheltered section of the lake under Ellis Peak. He called his friendly resort “Homewood, and all the name implies.” Today, that spirit of hospitality reigns along 21 miles of tree-lined shore, with bike paths and beaches to enjoy in summer and Homewood Mountain Resort in winter. (A local’s ski secret: The views from these slopes are among the best in the ski world.) Three California State Parks are found along this spectacular stretch. Sugar Pine Point includes both campgrounds and the historic Ehrman Mansion and estate grounds. Nearby, cross-country ski trails from the 1960 Olympics are still groomed during the winter. Open summer months, Bliss State Park is one of Tahoe’s enchanted places, with its whitesand beach, boulders and cliffs. A lakeside trail goes all the way to Emerald Bay State Park, one of the world’s most photographed places. Tour Vikingsholm Castle in summer, or just admire Fannette Island and its stone teahouse.

There’s fantastic fine dining along this stretch of lake, including at waterfront tables, indoor or out. A number of charming, small resorts offer rooms or separate cabins in the woods. 24 GoTahoeNorth.com

Terrific Tahoe City Before Tahoe City was Tahoe City, the native Washoe tribesmen called it “Daubey Odu”— roughly translated as “running over.” The name referred to the riches of fish and wild game they found here on their seasonal pilgrimage. The town was established in 1864, at the juncture where the lake spilled into the Truckee River, Tahoe’s only outlet, and quickly became a summer vacation destination. Today, the town “runs over” with energy and high-altitude fun all year-round.

A short stroll through town takes you past unique shops, casual and fine dining restaurants. Gatekeepers Museum has an excellent Native American basket collection. Tahoe Maritime Museum shines with gorgeous wooden boats. Cross historic “Fanny Bridge” over the Truckee headwaters and you’ll see where the bridge got its name: People lean over its rail to see the massive trout trolling the waters below. 26 GoTahoeNorth.com

Tahoe City’s scenic shoreline is packed with year-round activities. In summer, kayakers and paddleboarders put in at either Common’s Beach or Tahoe City Marina. With the Truckee River’s headwaters located directly in Tahoe City, rafters and kayakers launch from the top of the Truckee for a mild whitewater ride down the canyon. Common’s Beach hosts free concerts and evening movies. Snow season brings the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park to the downtown golf course, with a new skating rink, crosscountry skiing trails and snow play. More cross-country skiing is found at nearby Tahoe Cross-Country. Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Homewood ski areas are only 10- to 15-minute drives away.

Majestic Squaw Valley / Alpine Meadows One of the most picturesque valleys in the Sierra Nevada, Squaw Valley is legendary both for its beauty and skiing. Just over the mountain ridge is sister ski resort Alpine Meadows, accessible on the same lift ticket or IKON season pass. Together, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows offer 6,000 acres of terrain for all abilities. Now just a short 10-minute drive or complimentary shuttle ride apart, the resorts are slated to be connected in the future by a gondola. Stay slope-side at The Village at Squaw Valley condominium suites. This lively European-style village is nestled at the base of the mountain with a variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and activities for the entire family. After a day on the slopes, cozy up at one of the many outdoor firepits or take a spin at snowtubing or miniature snowmobiles for kids. Plan your visit around any number of four-season signature events or festivals. There are several additional hotels and lodging options – either ski-in/out or steps from the lifts.

In summer, a bike trail follows the Truckee River from here to Lake Tahoe while an Aerial Tram carries sightseers up 8,200 feet to High Camp where visitors can enjoy wildflower hikes, swimming in the freeform pool or dining with fabulous views.

Vibrant Tahoe Vista / Cool Carnelian Bay Ports of call for Tahoe’s steamships in the early 1900s, Tahoe Vista and Carnelian Bay are today ports of relaxation and recreation on this sandy stretch of shoreline. Here you’ll find excellent lodging options, many with lake access and views, as well as savory dining options.

North Lake Tahoe Regional Park’s 124 acres include picnicking, playing fields and hiking trails as well as sledding and cross-country ski trails.

Clearly Kings Beach

The epicenter of activity is the Kings Beach State Recreation Area, once the estate of town founder (and card-shark) Joe King, who won the land in a poker match where he would later start the town. Ever since, this expansive shoreline has been a safe bet for the millions who have visited. Summertime fun includes free concerts Friday evenings on the beach. There’s golfing at the nearby Old Brockway links. Water equipment rentals abound—this is a perfect spot to take up paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing or tandem paragliding. Kings Beach is close to three downhill ski resorts and two cross-country areas. Just outside town is the North Tahoe Regional Park, 124 acres of sledding, snowplow, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing in winter, playgrounds and play-fields, tennis, par course and disc golf during summer. When it’s time to relax, stroll along the town’s brand-new sidewalks, stop in at a unique boutique, then sip a coffee on a patio or near the sand. Enjoy a casual meal or fine cuisine in one of the town’s many restaurants. 34 GoTahoeNorth.com

Luminous Crystal Bay Located right on the California-Nevada border on North Shore, Crystal Bay has it all: glittering casinos to hikes and nearby beaches. A scenic and relatively short walk leads up to the Stateline Fire Lookout, a 7,077foot point of land with one of greatest 360 degree views in Tahoe. Plaques name the many peaks and tell the history of the surroundings from Mark Twain to lumber barons. Paragliders take off from here into the winds, landing nearby in Kings Beach.

In summer, a fantastic landscape of huge granite boulders and white sand makes the shoreline of Crystal Bay a playground of swimming, sunning, kayaking and paddleboarding. Search for the huge crystal along the water’s edge and in the lake that gave this naturally blessed section of Tahoe its name.

Three casinos flank the road passing through Crystal Bay, including Crystal Bay Club—North Tahoe’s musiccentral—with the Crown Room and Red Room Cabaret offering world-class rock, blues, jazz, comedy and (yes) dancing practically every night of the week. Looking for slots, gaming tables or sports books? They’re here and at Tahoe Biltmore and other neighboring casinos. Dining choices abound at the casinos and at nearby favorites like Soule Domain, with creative American cuisine in the most romantic of settings.

Inspiring Incline Village On Tahoe’s northernmost shore, this town got its name from the “Great Incline of the Sierra Nevada,” a device that carried timber over the mountains to construct the silver mines of Virginia City. The Flume Trail, today a world-renowned mountain bike trail, follows a route initially carved for a v-shaped timber flume.

Diamond Peak ski resort is above the town, a family-friendly spot with stellar beginner programs and panoramic views. A 15-minute drive over the summit is Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe, with long intermediate runs and super-steep, heart pounding chutes. Want to learn more about the Tahoe Sierra? The Tahoe Science Center is part of the UC Davis environmental research facility, with interactive science exhibits and engaging 3-D movies. Fine dining options are sprinkled around town, as are more casual restaurants and bars. During summer months, sip a cocktail on a white sandy beach or on a ridge-top deck overlooking all of Tahoe.

Elevated Northstar California Perched atop Mt. Pluto, the extinct volcano that dammed Lake Tahoe, Northstar California Resort is a premier family destination. On the slopes the resort is known for pristine grooming, the region’s most sophisticated snowmaking system, progressive learning terrain, an extensive cross country trail network and globally ranked terrain parks. Off-piste Northstar has a cult-like following for its glades and powder stashes. At the base of the mountain, the Village at Northstar is the epicenter for family memories. Three tiers of cozy fires, cabana lounges, tubing, and complimentary passed s’mores set the stage for an après ski experience unlike any other at Lake Tahoe. The action buzzes around a central ice skating rink under the Sierra sky. Tucked around the rink sit California-fresh restaurants, creative American cuisine, shareable bites and inviting pours of regionally sourced wine and craft beer – complete with kid-tested fare.

Year-round, world-class accommodations can be found from the wooded neighborhoods and Village to mid-mountain. Lodging includes alpine chic mountain homes, cozy slope-side condos, spacious apartments overlooking the Village and The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. 42 GoTahoeNorth.com

Historic Truckee Truckee was named after Pauite chief Tru-ki-zo by the pioneering emigrants he helped guide west. The town got its start with the construction of the Intercontinental Railroad in the 1860s and soon became infamous throughout the Old West. Things got more respectable with the launch of winter sports resorts here in the early 1900s. Today, Truckee maintains its railroad heritage while bursting over with great restaurants, bars, shops and year-round events and activities. There are multiple lakes close to Truckee, with a spot on Donner Lake’s beaches the most coveted. The Truckee River runs through town, and more fish are biting on the many tributaries in mountains to the north. Likewise, there is golf in every direction—three public courses and four private links are in Truckee or minutes away. The town is surrounded by four major and three smaller ski resorts, plus three cross-country ski areas.

After filling your days with fun and activity, take an evening stroll through Truckee’s downtown and its vintage buildings, shops and restaurants; or explore the newer sections of this booming burg. 44 GoTahoeNorth.com

Donner Lake State Park and Museum is open year-round with new facilities and exhibits documenting the hardships faced by the pioneers who attempted to cross the Sierra Nevada.


Spectacular Donner Summit Site of an historic railroad engineering feat, this is a scenic land of snow-capped peaks, mountain lakes and hiking and skiing trails. In the 1860s, hundreds of workers tunneled through the solid granite of Donner Summit, often by hand, to build America’s first Intercontinental Railway. Old Highway 40 has views of the now-abandoned train tunnels and roughly follows the route taken by early settlers headed for the Pacific. Backdrop for many movies (most recently “Her”), Rainbow Bridge is a highlight of the drive. Nearby granite cliffs are well-known in rock-climbing circles.

Boreal Mountain Resort has epic half-pipes, tubing and night skiing. Adjacent Woodward Tahoe is a trampoline and foam pit fun spot. Soda Springs is a small, value-oriented family ski area and tubing hill. In summer, hike north and south on the Pacific Crest Trail or to a myriad of lakes and small reservoirs. The Yuba River travels through pools and waterfalls on its descent toward the Pacific Ocean. These mountains reward exploration with fantastic discoveries, any time of year. 46 GoTahoeNorth.com

Lodges and hostels dot the area. Near the summit, Sugar Bowl is California’s historic ski resort. Opened in 1939, it is a winter sports mecca with a charming lodge and excellent cross-country skiing. Cozy up to the bar where Hollywood royalty Errol Flynn and Charlie Chaplin tipped a few.
