Three Great Reasons to Visit Tahoe South in April

By: Tahoe South

April is one of the best months to visit Tahoe as the crowds are gone, the days are longer and the parties are still going on. If you need additional reasons to plan your trip, below you will find some of my favorite activities to do in Tahoe in April – ski, eat, drink, hike, repeat.

1. The best spring skiing in Tahoe

Heavenly Mountain‘s season is expected to go through April 18th. Be prepared to have the entire mountain to yourself most of the day so hopefully, you like solitude in addition to views like these.

Kirkwood Mountain is planning to stay open until April 11th. You can always check in first with their live webcams before your trip and see what the conditions are like.

Sierra-at-Tahoe is the place for good times in Springtime. With awesome events in April, you are guaranteed to have some serious fun this Spring.

2. The best International Food and Drinks Apres Ski Spots in Tahoe South

There are some favorite spots for Apres Parties in Tahoe South but there are also some that would appeal to the serious foodie or drink connoisseurs. The bartenders at Jimmy’s Restaurant at The Landing Tahoe can prepare a phenomenal craft cocktail while you kick up your feet around the fireplace on the patio overlooking Lake Tahoe.

When you get hungry you can order a bite from Jimmy’s restaurant and trust me, they have a lot to choose from. They are known for some tasty appetizers.

If you are in a mood for something German, then I recommend the Himmel Haus. Plenty of German beers to choose from and of course pretzels and sausages for the hungry souls with other food options available.

If German doesn’t appeal to your palate after a long day of skiing moguls, then maybe Scottish is what’s in store for you at Macduff’s Pub in South Lake Tahoe. Who won’t enjoy a real shepherd’s pie after a long day of skiing groomers and Sierra corn? Of course, they offer lots of other options to choose from their menu in addition to the classic corned beef and cabbage and steak and Guinness stew you expect to find in a Scottish pub.

3. Waterfalls

Waterfalls will be flowing early this year! All I can say is, get ready for Spectacular sights. Read about the top 5 waterfalls to check out in Tahoe South and of course, check out the Tahoe South waterfall guide.
