Lake Tahoe is a beautiful destination for a getaway, with gorgeous scenery and a fun atmosphere that practically exudes relaxation and enjoyment. Beautiful forest land stretches out for miles and miles, with the vast majority of it’s surface blanketed by national forest. Lake Tahoe’s reputation as a tourist escape has lasted for literally thousands of years, with indian tribes of the distant past heading to it’s shores to relax, leading all the way into Americans of modern day seeking relief from the hustle and bustle of city life. And what’s more, if your idea of the perfect getaway include skiing, it’s exactly the place for you.

Surrounded by various mounts and peaks of different sizes, collecting into the resplendent Sierra Nevada mountain range, Lake Tahoe provides an awesome opportunity for skiers of all skill levels, and is a popular retreat for a large tourist population. With all the amenities modern life can offer, it’s still easy to imagine yourself as having stepped back in time, to a quieter and simpler way of life, in the bright, clear wilderness of the area. Lodges scattered up and down the shoreline provide a rustic retreat space for travelers, but the real value are the expansive vistas and slopes of the mountains.

The Squaw Valley is one such destination in California Ski Resorts. With a lively village that has the pedigree of having hosted the Winter Olympics at one point, so it’s not hard to imagine the sort of skiing that can be enjoyed on the slopes of this remarkable location, but that shouldn’t lead novice skiers to believe that they’ll be left out: there are slopes for enthusiasts of every level, giving the whole family a chance for a great time on the slopes.

Just a short shuttle ride away from Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows provides an even more quaint, and just as serene experience. Alpine Meadows prides itself on the hospitality shown to it’s residents, be it temporary or permanent, and provides skiing opportunities that can’t be beat. Even if you hit up Alpine Meadows outside of skiing season, the huge number of slopes and walking ranges in the mountains provides seemingly endless opportunities to enjoy yourself and take in the incredible environment of scenic Lake Tahoe in exactly the way it was meant to be seen: as a part of the gorgeous natural world.
