"Every season is adventure season"
Welcome to the greatest skiing and snowboarding on the west coast (Yes, we know that). Welcome also, to California's biggest mountain biking destination (really?). Lake Tahoe, located about 4 hours east of San Francisco, is home of 12 ski resorts and some of the deepest powder in America. Massive terrain parks, 2-3 mile runs, resorts with thousands of backcountry acres, and views of the largest alpine lake in the Sierras make Lake Tahoe an international destination. However, due to the large number of resorts in the area, lift lines are generally short and there are plenty of runs that don't feel like a traffic jam. Summer isn't the off season either. Lake Tahoe instantly becomes a mountain biking, hiking, river rafting, and water skiing destination, although the lake becomes considerably more crowded. However, due to its scenic resorts and endless opportunities, Lake Tahoe makes #7 on my list.
