November at Tahoe South
November in Tahoe – All The Beauty & Fun… All To Yourself!
November is arguably one of the most beautiful months around Lake Tahoe. It’s when the autumnal tapestry is disappearing and the highest reaches of the mountains surrounding the lake begin to frost over from the first snows. It’s a time for four-season fun. Here are some great activities and things to do in November.
Sunny Trails For You
The Tahoe Area Mountain Bike Association (TAMBA) has been spearheading major new trails all across Tahoe South. One of the newer projects completed this past summer was the Angora Ridge Trail. Situated on top of a glacial moraine, it offers amazing views of Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe. A great option for both mountain bikers and hikers alike. At the end of your ride or hike, be sure to venture 50 yards up the road to the historic Angora Fire Lookout for sweeping views. As a backup plan if it’s a bit too chilly or there’s some snow on the ground, head over to the Mule Deer trail, located just to the west of the Angora Ridge Trail.
Slide Into Ski Season
Even IF the famed Sierra storms haven’t rolled in just yet, the West Coast’s largest snowmaking system at Heavenly Mountain resort will be doing its part to get the season rolling this month. Heavenly currently has a tentative opening date of Friday, November 16th and Kirkwood is targeting to get their lifts turning by Wednesday, November 21st. With live music, giveaways, and of course the #1 ranked nightlife scene in the West, you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself on AND off the slopes. And for those looking for certified unserious fun on non-GMO snow, Sierra-at-Tahoe will open as soon as conditions permit.
Cruise n’ Eat On The Water
For those looking for a bit less adventure but still want to capture the essence of Lake Tahoe, a dinner cruise aboard the M.S. Dixie II is a must. As the paddle wheeler glides out of Zephyr Cove, you’ll be exposed to some of the best views of the region. The 500 person vessel is climate controlled for heating so even on the chilliest evening, you’ll be cozy too. The Dinner Cruise is complete with famous Tahoe sunsets, breathtaking views, local cuisine, and live music.
As you can see, Tahoe South offers a wide array of things you can do in November. With the holiday season fast approaching, use this time to relax and rest up. We guarantee you’ll go home more energized and ready to take on the world.
