Spring Party Scene in Full Effect at Lake Tahoe Featuring Poolside Events, Pond Skimming Contests, Snow Volleyball, Ice Bars and Live Music


Lake Tahoe, CA & NV (Apr. 8, 2009) - Snow is back in the forecast for Lake Tahoe with the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts currently being freshened up by snowfall from storms arriving just in time for Easter weekend. Skiers and snowboarders continue to benefit from timely storm systems this season that have brought welcomed powder and winter conditions leading into nearly every holiday period. Thanks to the deep snowpack, numerous Ski Lake Tahoe resorts will once again keep their lifts turning into the month of May, offering top-to-bottom skiing and snowboarding later than most of America's major winter destinations.
The current snowfall adds to the already impressive snow conditions in the Sierra with Lake Tahoe resorts reporting some of the deepest base depths in the entire country. Lake Tahoe's spring skiing and snowboarding experience is legendary thanks to routinely great snow conditions, bluebird skies and non-stop fun. Guests enjoy comfortable temperatures on the slopes, the famous seasonal "corn" skiing, extended daily resort operating hours and other spring activities totally unique to the Tahoe spring experience like water sports and golf. It's not uncommon in Lake Tahoe for morning skiing or snowboarding to be followed by afternoon golf or wakeboarding on Lake Tahoe.
In addition to incredible skiing and snowboarding conditions, the seven Ski Lake Tahoe resorts are currently in the midst of their annual spring celebrations consisting of anything ranging from poolside parties to pond-skimming contests, cook-offs, snow volleyball, outdoor ice bars and snow beach barbecues. For activities off the slopes, Lake Tahoe boasts an endless variety of 24/7 nightlife and entertainment options including live music, nightclubs, casinos, world-class dining, art galleries, shopping and sunset cruises.

affordable ski/stay packages in the entire country with rates starting as low as $59 per person.
