  6. 6. Skiing in Lake Tahoe There is no doubt that skiing is the number one activity that is the main attraction for anyone who is headed to Lake Tahoe in winter.

These are hot favorites for those who come back to Lake Tahoe and a visit to these places is mandatory on a holiday after a long period of skiing. For those who visit Lake Tahoe only for the gaming element, it should be said that there is a lot that is probably being missed by staying indoors and late at night. But if that is what you are looking for, then there is the Cal-Neva Resort, Crystal Bay Club and Casino, Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe Resort and Jim Kelley’s Tahoe Nugget to consider. Getting There Driving to Lake Tahoe is one of the most popular methods of getting there. It is an easy drive without any hassles. If you are going to North Lake Tahoe, the interstate highway I-80 East towards Reno and exit highway 89 South to Tahoe city is the best option. For those looking at moving towards South Lake Tahoe, US Highway 50 East towards South Lake Tahoe would be a better bet. When driving to Lake Tahoe during winters in the snow, be careful to check the road conditions before hand because the snow does get extremely heavy in the region. In addition to that try and use a four wheel drive SUV. If you do not have one, renting one would be a good idea for this terrain. Always ensure that you have snow chains (learn how to put on snow chains here) and a snow shovel with you when you are driving up. Valentines Day Getaway Guide 7
