Tahoe-Pines is a small community located on the western shore of Lake Tahoe, five miles south of Tahoe City and only one mile from Homewood Ski Center. This incredibly scenic area is one of the most visited spots in the state of California and offers year round outdoor recreation. In summertime, the nearby Truckee River offers white water rafting and superb fishing. Blackwood Canyon has hiking, biking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling trails. On the Lake you can enjoy swimming, boating, sailing, water-skiing and parasailing. In addition to Homewood Ski Resort, Tahoe Pines is just a short drive to other world-class ski areas such as Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. For non-skiers there are plenty of areas for sledding and tubing. South Lake Tahoe is approximately a thirty-minute drive away and has all the glitz and glamour of the casinos live shows, theater, fine dining and shopping. For something a little more low-key, visit the quaint town of Truckee, which is a great place to stroll the historic downtown area and browse the gift shops and art galleries. Donner Lake, where the infamous Donner Party was trapped in the winter of 1846, is a few miles outside the town of Truckee. Just five miles from Tahoe Pines is Tahoe City, generally considered the "hub" of the northwestern shore of Lake Tahoe, with plenty of shopping and other conveniences.

Tahoe Pines Weather & Climate

A distinct four-season,  alpine climate describes Lake Tahoe's weather. Located in the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains at the 7,000-foot level, summers are generally warm and dry with cool evenings and winters are quite cold and snowy. Moderate amounts of snow are reported each year in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with amounts and intensities increasing at elevations around 6,000 to 8,000 feet. Above 4,000 feet snow remains on the ground for long periods of time each winter and up to 40 feet of snow can be reported in the Sierras. Highways are sometimes closed for periods of two to three days due to blowing and drifting snow. Summers are quite pleasant and mild with occasional rain or thunderstorms. Sometimes, after a prolonged hot spell, thunderstorms at the higher elevations may become severe.
