Description

Lake Tahoe classic tour. Park alongside the road in the turnoff. Odds are there will be other cars there and a skin track already laid out for you to climb, which switchbacks up the fall line. It's an easy skin, even slow parties will do it in about two hours.

Once you get to the top, there are amazing views of Emerald Bay and the rest of Lake Tahoe. For the ski down, there are plenty of aspects for you to decide between based on the daily avy conditions.
