    After all the tests, the homework, expensive books and overpriced parking, don’t you deserve a a nice spring break? Lake Tahoe is full of great spring break ideas, so don’t just rent a hotel room and wing it. Go big and check out our top five favorite spring break ideas!

    Go Skiing in the morning then tailgate in the afternoon
    Lake Tahoe has some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the world, so there’s no question there–you should slap on a pair of skis or snowboard and hit the slope. But before you grab a spot on the chairlift, stick your refreshments in the snow and end the day with some burgers and ice-cold drinks. Don’t forget the lawn chairs. Check out our ski guide for a list of local resorts.

    Get a group of friends together–pool some money together and rent a cabin
    Lake Tahoe lodging and accommodations offer something for everyone. Tahoe vacation rentals are great for extended stays and for anyone looking for amenities like full kitchens, private hot tubs and expanded living space. Relax every night in the hot tub. Bring the BBQ back out and enjoy a nice view of the lake.

    Go moonlight snowshoeing
    Had a rough morning? It’s spring break. Don’t feel guilty about sleeping in. Rent some snowshoes then wait till the sun goes down. Enjoy the moonlight and go on late-night snowshoe hike through a Tahoe meadow. Don’t forget a flashlight and emergency kit. And don’t leave the trails. It’s easy to get lost at night.

    Check out the Spring Music Series
    Alpine Meadows hosts free music each Saturday through March and April. All shows start at 1 p.m. on the sun deck and get ready to jam to some fun, funky new bands as well as a great Police cover band. Check out the full schedule here
