Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places on Earth any time of the year, but each season does have its special charms. The months of March, April, and May are usually considered the “shoulder season” in the Sierras – that time between when the ski season starts winding down, and summer activities ramp up. This is a wonderful time to visit the region because there is still plenty to do and see.
As a real estate company that is both passionate about our home, and eager to share it with visitors, here are a few of our favorite things to do in the shoulder season:
Our mountain slopes remain covered in snow well into late spring. Whether you prefer skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing, there will be plenty of powder up at high elevations. We are fortunate to have the famous Squaw Valley Resort just down the road. The Tahoe X-country Ski Center is also a local favorite.
Since we can’t all possess our very own piece of lakefront paradise, the next best thing is a picnic on one of the local beaches (pick up the perfect snacks at West Shore Market & Deli), or drinks on the deck at local hotspot, Garwoods or The Bridgetender.
As the weather begins to warm up, finding the perfect spot to enjoy sunset will make an unforgettable memory.
Water sports start making a comeback in the spring, so definitely take advantage of calm sunny days by renting a kayak. On windy days, if you’re feeling brave, check out parasailing along the North Shore.
Whether you choose to linger in winter, or look forward to spring, March in Lake Tahoe has plenty to offer visitors. We’d love to help you discover what makes this such a wonderful place to call home!
