Top Tahoe South Sports Bars for March Madness

When it comes to celebrating early spring at Tahoe South, Mother Nature usually 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 afterward head to the top sports bars where locals go to watch basketball playoff action.
