THINGS TO DO
Snowshoe trails or sled rides are a great way to explore the Lake Tahoe mountains and natural beauty.
In Adventure Mountain, kids and family can have fun in the large outside area, and can go tubing, sleigh-riding, and have snowball fights.
Shopping in Lake Tahoe is a mix of local products and big brands.
After sunset, go to the Bear Trap Bar at the Ritz Carlton, with a casual atmosphere and great cocktails. If you're feeling lucky, visit the local casino or go dancing at Peek Nightclub.
