Welcome to Palisades Tahoe Ski Resort

When it comes to Californian skiing, it doesn’t get much better than Palisades Tahoe. Set amongst six majestic peaks and overlooking the vast waters of Lake Tahoe, the skiing here is out of this world. Bask in the warm Western American sunshine and make the most of high altitude snowsure slopes with epic mountain vistas. Happy days! Things roll a little differently in Palisades, though, with each peak served by a graded lift rather than graded runs, so make sure you hop on the right line up the mountain! Experienced skiers can test their skills on monster moguls, steep chutes, and adrenaline-pumping drops. While intermediates and beginners can take it easy on long cruisey runs and wide gentle greens.

Best time to ski in Palisades Tahoe

Palisades’ skiing season kicks off in November and lasts until May, so you’ll have heaps of time to make the most of the vast skiing area. Spring tends to be the best time for prime skiing conditions after big snowstorms from January to March. But with plenty of tree coverage, skiing is also possible during the wilder months. Looking to top up the goggle tan? Palisades Tahoe is one of the sunniest ski resorts in America. Cue big bluebird days on the slopes. Sunnies on! Top tip - the mountains can get pretty crowded at the weekends, so make the most of quieter runs during the week.

Things to do in Palisades Tahoe

Ready to party? The apres ski in Palisades Tahoe is upbeat and lively. Most skiers make a beeline for the KT-Base Bar to toast a fun day on the slopes with a jug of chilled beer. Or head to Bistro 22 for ‘All American’ beef burger sliders and cocktails. Palisades Tahoe ski resort may be small, but getting to the slopes is no sweat, and the views of Lake Tahoe are simply spellbinding. Fancy a lay day? There are plenty of fun activities away from the slopes, too. Race your mates on the snow tube track, explore epic backcountry terrain on snowshoes, or take a spin on the outdoor ice rink. Come on, let’s go!
