By: Lake Tahoe Staff

Throughout the year, teams, athletes and outdoor enthusiasts flock to experience Lake Tahoe. The destination has hosted a variety of sporting events including top-ranked tournaments, championships and competitions. And that number only increases as the fall and winter months arrive. Here’s why Lake Tahoe is the perfect place for your cold-season sporting events.

The Slopes Are Calling

Surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lake Tahoe is near snowy peaks and slopes that are perfect for skiing, snowboarding, and other outdoor activities. The region receives 500 inches of the icy white fluff annually, so there is more than enough to show your skills on.

Additionally, Lake Tahoe is home to the highest concentration of ski resorts in the country within a 100-mile radius. There are several locations that offer first-class accommodations, experience-enhancing amenities and snow-filled activities best fit your sports group.

Top Sports Venues in the Snow Season

Whether you’re needing a large-scale arena or outdoor space to host your sporting event, Lake Tahoe offers numerous athletic facilities that are suitable for all kinds of games and tournaments. Locations like the newly renamed Tahoe Blue Center—which features a National Hockey League (NHL) regulation-size ice rink with seating for approximately 3,900 spectators—and the Heavenly Mountain Resort are two of the destination’s most popular venues for winter sporting events. Check out the variety of sports venues available to host competitions during the late fall or winter.
