The webcams above are a small sampling of area resorts and attractions, intended to provide a quick overview of the weather and snow conditions in and around the Lake Tahoe area and Sierra Nevada mountains.

Some quick facts:

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in the country, and is home to rocky coves, white sand beaches, plunging cliffs, and glacier carved granite peaks. Forests of Jeffrey and Sugar Pine ring much of the 72-mile shoreline.

North Lake Tahoe is home to 12 resorts and towns – all with their own personality – including the Old Tahoe neighborhood of the West Shore, the vibrant downtown community of Tahoe City, historic Kings Beach (won in a poker game back in Tahoe’s heyday), as well as Incline Village, home to some of the area’s most awe-inspiring lakefront mansions.

Palisades (formerly Squaw Valley and home to the 1960 Winter Olympics) also boasts a vibrant village. The Village at Palisades has high performance apparel shops, along with boutiques featuring the best name brands and a wide variety of dining venues.

Other summer activities include stand up paddle boarding, hiking, road cycling, mountain biking, sailing, water skiing and boating.

Tahoe has the largest concentration of alpine ski resorts in North America with more than 20 downhill and cross-country ski centers around the lake. Snowmobiling, dogsledding, sleigh rides, snowshoeing, and winter cruises on the lake also provide endless variety.
