Since you live in Seattle, we’re guessing you’re an active person. That means you love getting outside and taking in what Mother Nature provides. No matter the season, you’ll find an infinite list of outdoor adventures to do steps from your basecamp in Lake Tahoe. As snow blankets our peaks, you’ll find a dozen world-class ski resorts to pick from. Transitioning from winter into spring and summer, you’ll find miles of epic mountain bike trails to delve into. Need to relax? No problem. Sit back and take in the jaw-dropping views on miles of Caribbean-like sandy beaches as far as the eye can see. We could keep going… but this is merely a small sampling of all the things you can do in Lake Tahoe.

Skip The Gloom And Enjoy The Sun!

We get it that Seattle isn’t that rainy. It doesn’t even crack the top 40 among US cities for average rainfall. But it IS gloomy. Annually, Seattle only has 60 days of sunshine, and the sun doesn’t rise until almost 8:00 am in December. If you’re looking for a vacation destination that offers perfect weather AND tons of sun, then Tahoe is #1. In the summer, temps’ range between 69 and 77 degrees with a 90% probability of sunshine. While in the winter, on average our peaks receive over 500” of snow. Statistically, it only falls on 50 days a year which means for every one day of powder expect three days of bright blue skies. Not enough? Here’s 5 reasons why we think it’s the Best In The West.
