Heavenly Lake Tahoe

Skiing in Tahoe. We flew from Vicksburg, MS to Reno, NV and rented a car to drive up to Lake Tahoe. We skiied from California to Nevada on Ski Line because at the beginning of the run, you are looking at beautiful Lake Tahoe and then end up looking at the Nevada Desert.

We enjoyed great snow conditions on the mountain and beautiful, sunny weather down by the lake. We enjoyed a break from skiing by riding around the lake and stopping for a picnic. Many photo opportunities around the lake, so be sure to bring a camera along.${QuickSuggestions} Take a camera with you everywhere. Explore the perimeter of Lake Tahoe. Dont be afraid to ski anywhere on the mountain. You can conquer this monutain in a week if you are a intermediate to expert. I recommend beginners take a private lesson and get your legs before going up to the top of the mountain. ${BestWay} We stayed at the Embassy Vacation Resort and found it best that we had a rental car, although there are shuttles that will take you to the ski area or the casinos. A grocery store was right down the road from the resort.

Best Things Nearby:
Marina. Restaurant in the resort and in the shopping area across the street. Some units offer a up close and beautiful view of Lake Tahoe. Make sure you request a view when checking in. McDonalds is within walking distance, as well as Domino's Pizza. The lake is just outside the resort, so you can go on cruises or rent boating equipment.

Best Things About the Resort:
Clean, new, and spacious. Amenities include a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, large bathroom, and nice fully-stocked kitchen. The second bedroom is a really a second unit (studio) that is attached to the master unit. The studio has two double beds, a mini kitchen, and a large bathroom. A ski tip: I purchased lift tickets online at www.skiheavenly.com at at discount price. You must do in more than 30 days in advance to get the best discount. After arriving at the ski resort, you do not have to wait in ticket lines -- you go straight to moutain services and they will take your picture and give you a ski pass with your photo to use all week. It only takes minutes and you have a keepsake from your vacation. Ski rentals can also be reserved at a discount rate at ww.skiheavenly.com if you do not own your skis or board. Plan ahead and you will save!

Resort Experience:
This vacation is for those who looking for something athletic to do or to relax. Nightlife can be found at the casinos along the strip. We skied 6 out of 7 days and relaxed at night at a restaurant or at the resort. We really enjoyed all that Lake Tahoe has to offer.
