Canadian travellers are the number one international market visiting North Lake Tahoe year-over-year and for good reason. This large alpine lake nestled within the Sierra Nevada Mountains, bordering California and Nevada, sees handfuls of adventure seekers and wilderness experts no matter the season. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year and the most concentrated amount of ski resorts in the United States, there is something for every type of client.
With the Reno-Tahoe International Airport just a 45-minute drive away, this centrally-located hub is ideal for those travelling near and far. You can feel assured that your clients will enjoy their experience thanks to an abundance of local outdoor recreation activities, endless hiking trails, modern resorts and boutique hotels, 10 golf courses and scenic views at every turn.
These are just a few of the reasons why you should suggest North Lake Tahoe for adventure-minded clients looking to revel in the great outdoors:
World-class ski resorts:
After a long day of hitting the slopes, your clients will love sinking into a chair and drinking a glass of wine by the fire or walking around either one of North Lake Tahoe’s mountain communities, Squaw Valley or Northstar. Come morning, adventure travellers can grab their skis and snowboards and explore the seemingly endless powdery terrain. North Lake Tahoe happens to be home to the most concentrated amount of ski resorts in the United States, with 12 on the North Shore and 18 around the lake. Tahoe is also home to Northstar California, an Epic Pass Ski Resort and Squaw Valley-Alpine Meadows an IKON Pass Resort, both of which have affiliations in Canada. A dreamy winter vacation is just a chairlift ride away.
Beaches & bites:
Beyond the renowned ski-life around Lake Tahoe, foodies will embrace the culinary scene throughout town, no matter the month. While summer and fall tend to be ideal for seasonal produce, their array of quality establishments are righteous for any self-appointed foodie. From Jake’s on the Lake, a family-run and owned restaurant, to The Resort at Squaw Creek’s Montagna, famous for home-grown vegetables, your clients will enjoy memorable moments spent around the table. Of course, after a great meal, they can head outdoors for fun in the sun at one of the many sand-lined coves including Kings Beach, a family-friendly recreational area.
If your client enjoys hiking, they will appreciate the 180-degree arc that stretches from Incline Village in Nevada, all the way to Emerald Bay, California. Those looking to bike or jog in between sessions on the slope will love the Flume Trail, a famed ride thanks to sweeping views, ease, and accessibility. And while these travelled parts are beautiful year-round, the most picturesque time to visit is during Lake Tahoe’s “secret season.” As summer winds down, the leaves start turning into the crisp colours of fall, transforming Tahoe into a natural paradise.
Arts & culture:
Clients can also feel empowered to trade in their hiking gear for heels as they explore the area in search of entertainment and events. Lake Tahoe hosts several festivals year-round including Passport to Dining, a food-focused day boasting more than 30 tasting stations, Oktoberfest, brews and bites party held at Commons Beach, and a Wellness Weekend dedicated to those seeking a balance of body and body. Theatre-goers can also take in Tahoe's Shakespeare Festival, history buffs can step back in time at the Gatekeeper's Museum and art aficionados can gallery hop around the north end.
