In a country where “bigger is better”, it’s not surprising that skiing in America is all about pushing boundaries and transcending limits. The USA is a place where skiers and snowboarders come together, to explore a vast mountain terrain and shred like there’s no tomorrow. When you take a season in America, you get the opportunity to experience something special: world-class slopes in a country that always manages to keep things interesting.
As a previous host of the Winter Olympics, Lake Tahoe in California offers some of America’s most sought-after ski. We know that fact may come as a surprise to some. We are talking about California, right? Yes. This is “California Dreaming” at 3,000 meters altitude!
At Heavenly Resort, the name says it all. As you shred down the mountain, you will find a breathtaking site staring back at you: Lake Tahoe, one of California’s natural treasures.
What makes Lake Tahoe an offer you can’t refuse are all the many ski resorts within close reach. Scattered around a beautiful lake, Lake Tahoe is home to 14 distinct ski resorts that all offer something different. Conveniently, Lake Tahoe is also only a 3.5 hours drive from San Francisco. So let’s say you get a few days off. Well, you are in luck. Lake Tahoe’s ideal location makes road trips down the coast of California a very realistic option. Hit the waves in Santa Cruz and explore all the funkiness and mouth-watering Mexican food San Francisco has to offer. It’s all just a short drive away – at least by American standards. It’s all yours for the taking.
