Quote: What a wonderful time we all had up in the snow of beautiful Lake Tahoe. Never been there in the winter. This was a first and won't be the last. Resort was Tahoe Beach and Ski. Great service. My home resort... love it!!

Sightseeing in the Snow of Ol' Lake Tahoe


Go on a trip around the lake. Many different views. Virginia City Saloon. Stop by the Bucket of Blood. Good times! Ski Heavenly and Squaw Valley. Shop in Squaw Valley. Casinos.

Quick Tips:

Load up on film - you'll need it. Bring plenty of layers... BRRR! We were not impressed with Cabo Wabo... a guy with a guitar and a track playing in the background. Expected more from Sammy. Pricey if you plan on partying a while. More like a sing-along with some dude.

Best Way To Get Around:

Rent a car, unless all you want to do is ski and gamble. Shuttles are good - no DUI's!

Very clean. Updated. Everything we needed for a 1-week snow adventure. Close to casinos and shuttles to any ski run we desired. Helpful staff and beautiful views all around.

We took some relatives up there so they could see what it all was about. They are from Maryland and never had been to Tahoe. So I figured a nice winter trip, for skiing or casinos, would be a great thing to do. I think they had a great time. I strongly suggest going to Virginia City, Donner Pass, and taking a dinner cruise if available. Years ago, I went and they still had the Bonanza film set there. I'm not sure if it is still around anymore. I wasn't a big fan of the show, however, I really enjoyed the tour.
