South Lake Tahoe, CA

Tucked away in the stunning Sierra Nevada range, South Lake Tahoe boasts majestic landscapes and crystal-blue waters. Lake Tahoe, one of the United States' most spectacular altitude lakes, draws international tourists and sports adventurers to its shores each year. South Lake Tahoe is home to approximately 26,000 residents.

The area occupied by the South Lake Tahoe was once comprised of pine forests inhabited by a few indigenous tribes of American Indians. In 1844, however, two explorers happened upon the lake, forever changing the area.

Because of its high elevations, South Lake Tahoe houses some of the most famous ski resorts in the United States. Both expert and novice skiers flock here during the winter months for skiing and snowboarding. The Thanksgiving holiday unofficially kicks off ski season each year (depending on the snowfall, of course).
