Amazing natural resources and wonders are abound in California, and one of them provides some of the best skiing in the United States! We are of course talking about the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, which stretches 400 miles and includes the beautiful Lake Tahoe, a large, clear, freshwater lake in the northern section of the mountains. Lake Tahoe extends into both Nevada and California, as it encompasses and area of 191 square miles. Also on the California side of Lake Tahoe? Five fantastic ski resorts—Alpine Meadows, Kirkwood, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Sierra-at-Tahoe, and Squaw Valley USA!
