Stroll, wander, stride, grab a selfie with some amazing scenery—your next adventure awaits. South Tahoe is crisscrossed by an extensive network of trails that wind through pine-scented woods and up slopes of glacier-carved granite. Take an easy loop along Lake Tahoe’s shoreline, visit a 100-foot waterfall or summit a 10,000-foot peak. Or maybe you’re ready to up your game and try a more rugged experience. Grab a backpack and head out for a few days of sweet backcountry solitude. And ©CONOR BARRY/AURORA PHOTOS; (INSET) ©ALAMY/AURORA PHOTOS

Sometimes you just gotta strap a board to a snow-covered mountain. At Tahoe South we're happy to oblige your quest for winter adrenaline rushes. And with 40 feet of snow and 300 days of sun a year, conditions are optimal for your winter skiing or snowboarding trip. We’ve got world-class ski resorts and acres of backcountry trails, so you can glide down groomed slopes or take a cross-country tour of the winter woods. Oh, and après-ski? None of this loungingsedately-with-hot-chocolate stuff—in Tahoe South, you can cap off your day on the slopes with a night on the town. With nightclubs that are going strong into the wee hours, you may not get much chance for resting those tired legs. That’s just how we roll.

Starting as early as mid-November, Tahoe South is
transformed into a snow-covered winter wonderland. Celebrate winter in the Sierra by skiing, sledding, snowmobiling or ice-skating. Oh, so you’re a special snowflake nonconformist? You think snowboarding is too pedestrian? What about these lesser-known winter activities? Snowball Fight Flash Mob, or Snow Unicorn Contest (snowmen are played out, no?). You can even heed the call of the wild and go dogsledding. (Note: It is not recommended to hook your children up to a dogsled and shout “mush!” at them, even if it would be hilarious.) Remember: A flask is not a replacement for a parka. Bundle up!
ZIP LINES, TUBING MOUNTAIN COASTER & MORE
The gondola gets you to the summit - where you go from there is up to you. You’ll ﬁnd everything from an all day adventure like the zip line canopy tour to quick thrills like the 3,400 foot long mountain coaster.

History & Heritage
BLAST FROM THE PAST From the Pony Express to Gilded Age resorts, Tahoe South is rich in history and lore. Picture it: a 100-foot barge floating out on Lake Tahoe with a full orchestra entertaining the guests on board. No, it’s not the party scene from “The Godfather Part II.” It’s a flashback to the 1880s, when Lucky Baldwin’s opulent hotel–casino attracted the rich and famous to Tahoe’s shores. Today you can stroll the grounds of Baldwin’s former digs at Tallac Historic Site or enjoy a concert in the Boathouse Theatre with Lake Tahoe as the backdrop. Other historic sites include Vikingsholm Castle and Valhalla, a turn-of-the-century summer home. Close by is a mother lode of Western history at Virginia City, where Mark Twain started his career; the Mormon Trading Post in Genoa; the Nevada State Railroad Museum; and the capitol building in Carson City.

AT THE SUMMIT Tahoe South is a rare blend of excellent meeting facilities, plentiful recreation opportunities and gorgeous scenery. One of South Tahoe’s most impressive features is its meeting scene. You’ll find more than 100,000-square-feet of man-made meeting space and more than 20 square miles of natural meeting space. Plus, dining options that run from quaint cafes to lake-view restaurants, lodging from intimate to elaborate, and indoor/outdoor activities including top-name entertainment and double diamond ski slopes. From casino resort hotels with capacity for large conventions to smaller boutique properties with intimacy for a board of directors gathering, we combine aweinspiring scenery and clear blue skies with professional business services and friendly mountain hospitality. Meeting programs include not only team building but family and personal activities, from lake cruises, gondola rides and zipline to mountain coaster experiences, paddleboard or cycling excursions to lake-view
reception and dining options. Top it off with easy access via highways and airports, and you’ve got all the ingredients for a unique and memorable meeting destination. Check out all of the meeting and event options waiting for you at one of the most beautiful venues in the country. TahoeSouth.com/meetings
