Lake Tahoe

Search South Lake Tahoe California

The point where the California-Nevada border makes it bend is actually located in the deep waters of Lake Tahoe. So large and deep is the lake that its waters could cover the entire state of California to a depth of 14 inches.

The amazingly clear and pure waters attracted wealthy Californians, who built mansions along the shores at the turn of the century. As roads were constructed, the lake became less the exclusive preserve of the rich. Since the mid 70's, the Lake Tahoe Regional Planning Agency has been responsible for maintaining the environmental quality of the area during the process of responsible development.

There are two ways to reach the lake, via Interstate 80 to the North Shore and Hwy 50 to the South Shore.

Is a major snow and ski destination with 18 downhill ski resorts and 5 cross-country ski trail systems. Some of the area resorts include the Heavenly, Kirkwood and Sierra at Tahoe.
