Lake Tahoe is the largest Alpine Lake in America and is located where California and Nevada meet. Skiers and snowboarders visit each winter for the more than dozen mountains including Heavenly Ski Resort [the largest in California] and Squaw Valley [site of the 1960 Winter Olympics]. Lake Tahoe is also home to miles of beaches and some of the best summer recreation in the country including watersports, hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, fishing, hot air balloon rides, and rock climbing.
