Visiting: Lake Tahoe

I love ski season! I mentioned here that I was really enjoying getting into skiing again after tearing my ACL.

This year, Kevin and I tried a new location for skiing: Lake Tahoe. Wow, it is truly skiing with the most beautiful views!

If you don't believe me, take a look:

We went to Heavenly for the entirety of our trip. We also planned to go to Northstar and Kirkwood as well, but some winter weather road conditions made it hard to drive to Tahoe with a rental car, so we opted for a shuttle and not having a car while in Tahoe.

Without a car, here is what we did visiting South Lake Tahoe!


Eat:
Base Camp Pizza
Right in the heart of Heavenly Village makes this place great. It is not the best pizza I have ever had, but it is very good! Who doesn't love pizza after a day of skiing?!

Azul Latin Kitchen
This place is owned by the same people who own Base Camp Pizza (and right next to it!). If you dine at any of these places, save your receipts because they offer 10% off at any of their other restaurants. I enjoyed some tacos, I think they were a little overpriced, but good!

Artemis Lakefront Cafe
Okay, by far the best place we ate in South Lake Tahoe! The hummus, service, price, lakefront, and gyro...all perfect!!

Stay:
The Bluelake Inn. Okay, so this place would not be fancy enough for some, but I am cheap and stayed in a motel with excellent proximity to Heavenly. It was not the most comfortable bed, but it was clean and did the job for somewhere to stay

Do:
Ski Heavenly! 
It is beautiful!

If you don't wanna ski and still see the beautiful view, there is an observation deck and you can pay for a Gondola ride up there! One of our favorite runs was Ellie's Run, but I could be biased because that's my youngest sister's name!



Oh and even though it was winter, we went to the beach. It was fun to see! And I even made a new friend on the beach!



Where are some of your favorite places to visit in winter?
