South Lake Tahoe

Our son said he wanted to see snow this winter and we decided to go and see Lake Tahoe. This is a gigantic ancient lake with clear water and is incredibly deep. It is surrounded on all sides by mountains where there is snow during most of the year. People seem to visit the ski resorts on these mountains to ski in winter and hike trails and enjoy the lake water in summer.

There are many towns around the lake and ski resorts, we decided to stay at the South Lake Tahoe town and visit the Heavenly ski resort that is nearby. South Lake Tahoe is about 4 hours drive from the Bay Area.



Since this was the family's first real winter vacation we had to figure out what to wear to keep warm outside and not get wet. This is what worked out for us:

This little trip to Lake Tahoe was quite enjoyable. Maybe next time we will learn to ski there!
