Lovely ski resort at the state line. The view on the gondola ride is absolutely stunning - panoramic views of the lake and mountains! Second time boarding, and still a beginner, so I hung out around the bunny slopes all day (too scared to go on any other lifts/trails) and the Tamarack Lodge while my friends boarded.
Food at Tamarack Lodge is extremely pricey and is the only food option. I highly suggest eating before you head up on the gondola. Lodge also has a bar and happy hour starts daily at 3:30pm.
Was interested in taking boarding classes, but when I went, the last one was at 1pm - so I'd recommend booking in advance or in person early morning day of.

Probably the most popular and most often skied resort near South Lake Tahoe, this one is just about right in town. Catch one of the free in-town shuttles from wherever you're staying and ski the California or Nevada side of the ski resort. In summer, the gondola transports hikers and mountain bikers to the top.

An excellent, world class ski resort with the highest vertical drop at Lake Tahoe. The Nevada runs, Stagecoach Express and Boulder, are great since they have shorter lines and have plenty of room to ski even on busy days of the season. You can still take the lifts to the California side, because it's the same resort on both the CA and NV sides of the mountain.

Heavenly is great, because of the amazing views when you are skiing down hills or sitting on the chair lift looking back. You can get a clear view of the beautiful turquoise lake beyond the snow covered mountains. The runs here are not very challenging but if you like blue runs, it can be a good option. It is not a very friendly mountain for boarders. Quite a few runs in the mountain has sections that are pretty flat. It is hard even for skiers to go down.
