Songwriter Fran Landesman must have been a skier: What else could explain her lyrics to "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most" but that snowless window between April and November? Sure, we endure the warm weather and clear skies all summer, but our hearts belong to winter and to our beloved ski hills.

An off-season adventure around the lake in three days.
Come for the snow, stay for the sun. As many locals will agree, summers in Tahoe are just as beautiful and full of adventure as the winters inspiring many a seasonal resort worker to stay long after last chair.
