If North Lake Tahoe isn’t on your “must travel” list this spring, it should be. This time of year is the best of both worlds, with winter fun complimented by blue skies, sunshine and warmer weather. We’ve compiled the ultimate itinerary to help make the most out of your experience.
Start your trip with a cross-country experience to take in unsurpassed scenery you won’t find anywhere else. Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area is a great place to begin with 21 ski trails through alpine forests and meadows, some of which lead to gorgeous lake views. Later in the day, head to Kings Beach State Recreational Area to walk along the snowy shores, getting up close and personal with Lake Tahoe. When you’re ready to unwind, visit one of North Lake Tahoe’s treasured gems, the award-winning restaurant Wolfdale’s Cuisine Unique. Crafted by Chef Douglas Dale, the seasonal menu features a variety of unique culinary creations including seafood, meats, exotic produce and desserts. You won’t be disappointed.
For day two, spend some time exploring Incline Village and Crystal Bay. Stop in at Sierra Café for their savory Tahoe Benedict or sweet Elvis Waffle–it’s the perfect way to start your day. Kick off today’s skiing adventure at Diamond Peak, the community-owned resort. Diamond Peak is home to miles of welcoming, uncrowded runs and spectacular views of Lake Tahoe. After you’ve had enough time on the slopes, treat yourself to a massage and facial at Stillwater Spa & Salon in the afternoon. Or, unwind around lakefront fire pits with a glass of wine at the Hyatt Regency before dinner. The lakeview panoramic windows at Lone Eagle Grille and their expertly paired game meats, seafood and vegetarian entrees are sure to wow your taste buds. After dinner, get cozy by the lake and watch the sunset.
Round out your trip by visiting Tahoe City. For breakfast, try the European style pastries of Tahoe House Bakery & Gourmet. After breakfast, experience sledding and ice skating at Tahoe Winter Sports Park, it’s the perfect place to get in some off-mountain snow time. Or if you’re wanting to get a little more adventurous, try cross country skiing or fat biking. Once you work up an appetite, head to Rosie’s Cafe for lunch and get a glimpse of Tahoe’s history from the eclectic antique collection and décor inside. When finished, make your way to Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park. Test your skills on the scenic ropes course and fly through the trees on the ziplines.
