Mountains Are Calling

It’s a good thing that Tahoe South has 300 days of sunshine so that you can pack in as much outdoor fun as you can.

Summer, Fall, Winter & Spring

There are no two trees about it, getting outside is good for you. From escaping the daily stresses to getting a bit of exercise, you’ll feel better, look better, and come home recharged and ready to take on the world. And when it comes to the outdoors, Tahoe South provides you with an almost infinite amount of options. In the winter, get your fill of snowy fun like skiing, sledding, or snowshoeing. In the warmer months, go for a hike, ride a bike, or enjoy the waters on a stand-up paddleboard. And if you’re here in the spring or fall, there’s a good chance you can have a bit of everything.

Things to Do in Tahoe for Every Season

Sure, we’re a little biased, but there’s never a bad time to visit Tahoe South. Pick a season, any season. Celebrate summer in the Sierra with a hike to Emerald Bay State Park or make a splash at Pope Beach. Discover why Tahoe winters are legendary for skiing and holiday fun at the Heavenly Village and Ski Resort. If you want to avoid the high season crowds, visit Lake Tahoe in the spring to hit the slopes in sunglasses and a t-shirt, or come in the fall when the mountains are painted in autumn colors and hiking is at its best. Regardless of when you visit, there’s plenty of Lake Tahoe things to do.

Out Of The Ordinary Outdoor Adventures

Off-road or paved. Cruiser or full suspension. When it comes to cycling adventures, you’ll find it in Tahoe South. Adrenaline junkie mountain bikers will find the aptly named Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride a serious challenge, even for the most serious biker. For athletic individuals, a ride on the world-famous Flume trail is a must. It gives you access to a bird’s eye view of Lake Tahoe that no other trail in the world can provide. And lastly, for a more mellow adventure that the entire family can enjoy, consider one of the many dedicated paved routes like the Pope-Baldwin Bike Path.

Standup Paddle Yoga

Vacations are about doing things that are different. Maybe a little out of your comfort zone, but most of all it’s supposed to create memories. Tahoe South has outdoor adventures like that in spades. Push your limits in a safe environment by trying SUP Yoga. See Tahoe like a bird via a hot air balloon or even bob five hundred feet above the waters with a parasail. A little too hair raising? Combine a hike with a little bit of competition and a whole lot of views by trying disc golf at Zephyr Cove.

From 5 to 100, hiking is one of those activities regardless of fitness level or age you can enjoy. If it’s your first time hiking, start slow on a mellow hike with a big reward like to Eagle Falls. For a bit more of a challenge with stunning views, head to what National Geographic has rated one of the top ten trails in the country – Van Sickle Bi-State Park. And then of course there’s always the more serious endeavor of Mt. Tallac. At over ten miles and nearly 3,255 feet of climbing, the view at the top, as well as the effort to get there, will surely take your breath away.


Live Like There’s Snow Tomorrow

Shove off on a pair of cross-country skis below the flanks of Mt. Tallac. Do your best Griswold impression from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation by going snow tubing. Embark on a one-of-a-kind journey on a snowmobile thousands of feet up to for a view of Tahoe that only a handful can enjoy in the winter. Ride waist deep pow and more!
