It’s easy to understand why you’d be obsessed with Nevada. The more than 24,000 acres of skiable terrain, 33 feet of annual snowfall and 18 incredible ski resorts at legendary Lake Tahoe would thrill anyone.
It’s easy to understand why you’d be obsessed with Nevada. The more than 24,000 acres of skiable terrain, 33 feet of annual snowfall and 18 incredible ski resorts at legendary Lake Tahoe would thrill anyone. Not to mention the ski runs that rise from 7,350 feet to more than 10,000 feet. Imagine the views you’ll get from the top of the snow-capped mountains that surround the largest alpine lake in North America. And this is one place where you can count on blue skies as clear as the lake itself.
You’ve been skiing for years and have cranked out millions of vertical feet—and maybe even taken a lesson or two. The result: You’re a confident advanced skier. Satisfied? Don’t be. With a little more work on snow and in the gym, you can be a seamless expert.

NORTH LAKE TAHOE, CA – April 15, 2009 - Support Earth Day 2009 by attending the North Lake Tahoe Truckee Earth Day Festival this Friday and Saturday, April 17 & 18, in the Village at Squaw Valley, California.
With private clubs and loyalty rewards, family packages and immaculate grooming, upscale lodging and cutting-edge terrain parks, this little-known Tahoe gem is quietly becoming the Deer Valley of the Far West.
“You’re coming to town and you’re going to Northstar?” my Tahoe friends cough in disbelief. To them—all hard-skiing locals—Northstar-at-Tahoe’s steadily surging popularity (No. 3 for skier visits in all of Tahoe) is hard to comprehend. It has no signature steeps, a la Squaw Valley or Kirkwood. It lacks the big, in-your-face views of Heavenly, offering glimpses of Lake Tahoe from only one sliver of its summit. It has none of the rugged topographical drama so signature to the basin. It’s the un-Tahoe, and my friends want no part of it—at least not on skis.
Highlights Include Innovative Technology, New Green Initiatives, Affordable Value Options
