“Tis the season … to get ready to ski, snowboard, snowshoe and snowmobile throughout the High Sierra!
With cold temperatures and a promise for a fairly good winter in the High Sierra, our team at our business offices in Incline Village on Lake Tahoe’s north shore through would like to know about what is new at Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts.
Thanks to a lot of research from the team at the North Tahoe Resort Association, they have prepared a great synopsis that we’re now sharing for you.
See you on the slopes!
