The best of Tahoe winter fun wrapped up in one easy package


Why did Orbitz and TripAdvisor rank Lake Tahoe as the number one U.S. destination last year?

ip through the miles of snow-covered trails on a world-class snowmobile, jump on board a sightseeing cruise and then relax on your lakeside balcony watching a world-class sunset view only offered at Zephyr Cove on the south shore. Now add in the crystal-clear blue waters and magnificent alpine scenery of Lake Tahoe in the background, and you are in for an unforgettable vacation.

From now through March 20, 2009, guests can try the best of Zephyr Cove Resort with its “Stay, Cruise and Snowmobile” package that offers an all-encompassing experience. Starting at $319, visitors can stay two nights in a lakeside cabin, embark on a double-rider snowmobile tour, cruise to Emerald Bay on the M.S. Dixie II and enjoy a breakfast and lunch for two in the Zephyr Cove Restaurant.

Zephyr Cove boasts the largest snowmobile tour center in the country, with a fleet of more than 150 state-of-the-art snowmobiles with superior performance and safety features.  The Center offers snowmobile clothing rentals, a full-service lodge with accommodations, restaurant, coffee bar and gift shop right next to the snowmobile registration center. In addition, free shuttles to Zephyr Cove are offered from most South Shore lodging properties.

Voted “Best Boat Cruise at Tahoe,” the M.S. Dixie II was built in the traditional southern style of the steamboats that once cruised the Mississippi River. Transported from the Mississippi in sections to Zephyr Cove, she made her first launch on Lake Tahoe in 1994 and was completely redecorated in 2001. The M.S. Dixie II offers daily cruises ranging from historic breakfast buffet and champagne brunch to the sightseeing and dinner dance cruise.

After a day of endless outdoor activities at Lake Tahoe, what better way is there to unwind than to watch the glowing sun set over the sapphire blue water? The best sunsets are at Zephyr Cove Resort, with quaint cabins perched right on the South Shore, offering spectacular views amidst a backdrop of sandy beaches and lush green pines. Zephyr Cove Resort’s lakefront studios and cabins are just minutes from downtown shopping, casinos and restaurants.
