Lake Tahoe is the epitome of everything for everyone. You have hundreds of miles of trails to hike and Caribbean-like beaches to lay on. Not to mention more than a dozen world-class ski resorts. What many don’t realize is that along with all the natural opportunities to have fun, there’s a host of motorized adventures you can partake in too. In the summer, you can rent a boat or jet ski for some fun action water sports. And in the winter, go on a snowmobile adventure reaching elevations of up to 9,000 feet with views of Tahoe only a few enjoy in the snowy months. 

Beat The Summer Humidity & Heat

Although Houston has a lot to offer from food, culture, and cuisine, one thing that you may want a break from is the heat and humidity. If you’re coming from Houston to Lake Tahoe, know that the climate in the summer is as good as you’re going to find ANYWHERE for beach weather. Nearly 90% of the days are sunny and the summer temps hover on average between 69 and 77 degrees without feeling any humidity. You’re not going to get much better than this when it comes to perfect weather to enjoy the miles and miles of beaches.

Snow The Way A Texan Would Want It

There’s a reason that you call Houston home. You don’t like cold weather or cloudiness. When it comes to a snow destination, Tahoe is #1 for Texans. In fact, if they were giving out an award for the best weather to ski in Lake Tahoe, we would win every winter. For starters, we get some of the most snow in the country. Nearly 500 inches of snow blanket the peaks every season, but it comes on average only 50 days per year. This translates to about three days of beautiful sunshine weather for every day of fresh powder. In summary, have your cake and eat it too!

As you can see, whatever you imagine your perfect trip to be, you’ll find it in Lake Tahoe. We think you’ll have to plan multiple trips to each season and experience what they all have to offer.
