North Lake Tahoe Spring Break 2024

squaw valley spring skiing base village

Spring in Lake Tahoe: the days are longer, the sun is warmer, the snow is softer (albeit slushier), and the events calendar is stacked. By spring, snowpack depths are ample (250+ inches), and spring storm cycles are typically prominent, making it one of the best times to plan a ski trip to the area.  

With six world-class ski areas in the North Lake Tahoe area: Northstar, Palisades Tahoe, Sugar Bowl, Homewood, Scott’s Peak, and Diamond Peak, there’s no shortage of on-mountain springtime adventures to be had. Beyond skiing, the North Tahoe area features an incredible line-up of spring events, concerts, and festivals. 

To help you experience North Lake Tahoe's best, we compiled a list of some of our favorite spring experiences.

Spring Adventures in North Lake Tahoe

Off-piste skiing in Lake Tahoe is at an all-time high in the spring. Access incredible backcountry terrain with Homewood Snowcat Adventures. You can enjoy guided skiing and ride on 750 acres of backcountry terrain on the flanks of Ellis Peak, which is located above the ski area boundary. 

Enjoy the serene beauty of spring in the mountains with a sunset snowshoe tour, guided by Tahoe Adventure Company, offered every Friday evening.

Most Wednesdays starting in February through the end of the season, Diamond Peak Ski Resort hosts the Last Tracks Wine/Beer Tasting. Last Tracks participants can take advantage of half-day lift tickets followed by the last chair to Snowflake Lodge, where wine or craft beer tastings are paired with tasty appetizers and breathtaking lake views. Purchase tickets in advance.
