Spring at Lake Tahoe gives you a mix of warmer temperatures at lake level with snow on the mountains ringing the alpine water. Lake Tahoe is 72 miles around and is about 1,000 feet deep. And it’s definitely too cold for swimming in the spring. But its beauty is breathtaking.
To Hike or Ski?
Our first day here we set out to hike at one of our favorite places, Mt. Rose at the north end of the lake. We didn’t realize the amount of snow still standing in the mountains. People drove up and got out of their cars and put on their skis. No hiking here this spring!

The Dam in Tahoe City
Lake Tahoe has only one outlet, the Truckee River. In recent years, the riverbed was completely dry. This year, the river is tumbling out of the dam gates. What a fine sight to see all this life-giving water!

With the mix of snow-covered mountains and sun on the water, Lake Tahoe is the perfect place for a spring getaway.
