NTBA is excited to welcome back the beautiful long, warm days that spring brings to North Lake Tahoe. There truly is no better time than now to explore the many fun adventures our region has to offer. This spring will be a unique one due to our record breaking snowfall this winter. Skiing and riding will continue to be fantastic well into late spring! …And as the snow melts, all of Tahoe’s epic warm weather activities will begin to be accessible.
Spring in Tahoe is famous for dual sports days; there are so many options while we are in limbo between winter and summer! You can do multiple activities in one day or a weekend! Start off by enjoying a glassy paddle on big blue, a relaxing afternoon on the sandy beach, or perhaps in a last chance for spring skiing and riding. While the spring adventures are endless, there are also heaps of amazing local small businesses we encourage you to show your love to and support including shops, restaurants, services and more!
