There are so many ski resorts here that you might have a hard time choosing! Otherwise, you can also enjoy various activities in Lake Tahoe. The lake holds over 39 trillion gallons of water -- probably enough to satisfy your swimming, jet skiing, water skiing, windsurfing, parasailing and boating requirements. Windsurfing is considered an ultimate experience with the extra thrills of getting a bird's eye view of the unbelievable scenery around Lake Tahoe. What s more, its sandy beaches and picnic areas are the stuff that dreams are made of -- a visit to them is a must. They abound all round the lake but just a word of warning, the water in the lake can be icy cold at times.
Surrounding the Lake Tahoe Basin are hundreds of miles of trails and footpaths, ranging from easy to strenuous, branching off into unspoiled wilderness. You will encounter a variety of flora and fauna, as well as animals. There s various bird species like American robin, bald eagle, California gull, Canada goose, dark-eyed junco, hairy woodpecker, mallard, mountain chickadee, red-tailed hawk, steller's jay, western tanager, yellow-headed blackbird. Some animals you ll find are black bear, coyote, Douglas squirrel (chikaree), golden-mantled ground squirrel, mule deer, pine martin, and the yellow-bellied marmot. Trees are also in abundance: alder, aspen, cedar, Jeffrey pine, Lodgepole pine, Ponderosa pine, Sierra juniper, sugar pine, white fir and willow.
In here, exploring is simply the name of the game. There is so much to be seen and discovered in this magnificent place that an entire holiday wouldn t even be enough to simply just roam around. But communing with nature is certainly worth the experience, especially if nature looks as good as it is in Tahoe.
