Lake Tahoe Gears up for its Winter Events

Lake Tahoe

The snow has (finally) arrived, and Lake Tahoe is starting to get covered. The Californian resort city is gearing up for the rest of the winter season in the Sierra Nevada mountains. 

"Visitors from San Francisco, Sacramento, Los Angeles and New York especially love Tahoe City's vibe," shares Stacie Lyans, Tahoe City Downtown Association's  executive director.

The TCDA has released Tahoe’s event schedule for 2015. The events include Margarita de Mayo in May and the dance festival this summer.

For those looking to get invloved with Tahoe's winter events, The Cobblestone Relays will take place at the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park on February 26, 2015. It is inspired after cross-country ski races in Europe. If the snow holds out Wacky Winter Bowling will take place in March. Children and adults can participate in the competition that encourages people to sled into — and knock down — blow-up pins.

"Our events showcase Tahoe City's natural treasures and the incredible experiences available in town," said architect Gary Davis and president of TCDA's board of directors.

Lake Tahoe is located about 100 miles from Sacramento and about 40 miles from Reno.
