Top Tahoe South Sports Bars for March Madness

When it comes to celebrating early spring at Tahoe South, Mother Nature usually (cross your fingers, dust off your snow dance) brings us a series of winter storms locals refer to as "Miracle March." These storms have been known to drop several feet of snow, making Lake Tahoe's spring skiing the best in the West.

The timing of these storms usually happen, ironically, during another miracle time of the year, NCAA Basketball March Madness. You can ski all day in March, taking in the best snow conditions anywhere, and afterwards head to the top sports bars where locals go to watch basketball playoff action.

The 2016 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament will involve 68 teams playing in a single-elimination tournament to determine the national champion of men's NCAA Division I college basketball. The 78th edition of the tournament is scheduled to begin on March 15, 2016, and will conclude with the championship game on April 4 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. | Credit Wikipedia
