North Lake Tahoe is known for it's world-class skiing and its great variety of summer activities, from lounging to boating to paddle boarding. However, we here at Granlibakken think that spring is one of the best seasons to visit Tahoe.
Spring in Tahoe, first of all, is gorgeous. The snow gives way to wildflowers, and the Aspens along the lake start budding. The weather is beautiful, with long, sunny days, and mild evenings. Spring is also an amazing transitional time in Tahoe. The ski resorts aren't closed yet, so you can take a few quintessential California laps in your t-shirt, and enjoy a cold beer on the deck. Then, afterwards, at the lower elevations, it is mild enough to paddle-board, bike, or boat on the same day. Where else can you ski for a half day and then paddle-board or bike afterwards?
Spring in Tahoe is also the time to see this area through a local lens. There are fewer crowds, and so you can have that perfect beach day without having to share the beach. You can explore the sights and vista points without dealing with any traffic. You can enjoy a leisurely bike ride or hike, and have the trail to yourself. Spring is also an affordable time to enjoy Tahoe, with many hotels and restaurants offering shoulder-season specials. Here at Granlibakken, The Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park is offering 20% off sessions to Granlibakken guests this spring, which is an amazing deal for North Tahoe's #1 rated activity.
We hope that you will visit Tahoe this spring. It is an unforgettable experience, and you'll want to come back again every spring to experience Tahoe's more peaceful season.
