South Tahoe - Best Ski Destination nominee
Gob-smacking scenery, vast and varied terrain, and gambling typify the draw to the resorts around the northern stretch of Lake Tahoe. Heavenly straddles the CA/NV state line, with in-your-face lake views, a massive 4,800 skiable acres, and easy access to the town of casino-rich South Tahoe. Further afield, kids and families flock to Sugar Bowl and Northstar-at-Tahoe, the latter of which offering a Star Wars-themed learn-to-snowboard day camp. The more experienced, meanwhile, test their mettle in the exposed peaks of Kirkwood, whose skull-and-crossbones warning signs speak to the daunting challenges ahead.
