How To Prepare For Your Lake Tahoe Skiing Vacation

By: danlesser
The ski season is nearly upon us again and you will be looking for cheap ski vacations.

I like the idea of taking winter vacations because it can be a way to enjoy the snow and take a break from trying to live normal daily life while fighting with it. Snow is beautiful but not if you're sitting on the highway for three hours watching it fall and snarl traffic, preventing you from getting home. One of my favorite winter vacations was the time we went to Vermont to ski and snowshoe, and even though I was certainly cold, it didn't bother me as much because I was doing things that were fun. I wasn't waking up in the cold and heading out to work in the dark, feeling like my blood would freeze before I ever reached a warm building.

Have you found that perfect skiing package yet? The one which provides ski lodging, rental equipment, plenty of resort activities, in a resort that has plenty of ski trails, ski lifts, long pistes, trails & runs, suitable for the beginner, intermediate and expert skier, close access to the slopes from your lodging and of course the all important apr?s-ski? Also there are many different ski schools to pick from, lift tickets to buy, and apr?s-ski to enjoy, appropriate runs to choose for your group. It can all seem overwhelming! You might want to take a look at using a ski travel package company to help you with all this.

Which is the best ski resort? Is it Vail, Camelback or Jackson Hole. I for one really enjoy Lake Tahoe.

You can find great resources around Lake Tahoe for learning snow skiing. Lake Tahoe skiing is world class! There is no other way to put it. The options you have at the resort are only limited by time. From Echo Summit and Carson Pass in the south to Donner Summit to Mount Rose in the north, you will be able to find an endless supply of adventures. Then there is Mt. Tallac, at 3,000 feet it tower's above Tahoe's southwest shore and you will be able to enjoy a variety of terrain without equal.

Lake Tahoe vacation is replete with skiing and snowshoeing possibilities. Even if you've never skied, there are so many ski areas you'll find one to suit you. Homewood Ski Resort, on the west shore, has several gentle slopes for the novice, and is very kid-friendly. Heavenly Valley and Squaw valley offer challenging runs for the experienced skier.

Your Lake Tahoe vacation will not be complete without visiting some of the hundreds of excellent restaurants lining the shore. Their lake views are breathtaking, and you can find menus ranging from pizza to gourmet. Take your pick!

All around the lake, there are shops galore, to satisfy the shopping vacationer.

On the Nevada side, casinos offer night time fun, along with "all-you-can-eat" buffets at a reasonable price and top-quality food.

When planning your Lake Tahoe vacation, contact the various Chamber of Commerce organizations for ongoing events you won't want to miss. There are many themed fairs, Shakespeare theater, hot-air balloon tours, air shows and vintage car exhibits to please every member of your family. An online search for "Lake Tahoe vacation" will yield more possibilities than you can fit in to your Lake Tahoe vacation time!
