About Lake Tahoe Accomodations

TransWorld hooked up with Lake Tahoe Accomodations this past winter during a park shoot at Sierra-at-Tahoe. The difference in vibe between staying in a bunch of hotel rooms and staying in a house was night and day. One “Woot woot!” was all it took to wake the crew up every morning-we cheffed up breakfast together, waxed boards in the garage, rolled up to the mountain together, and strummed guitars kumbaya style on the deck under the moonlight come night. Some real bonding went down. Try that in a series of hotel rooms.

Lake Tahoe Accomodations has over 300 vacation rentals to choose from including cozy cabins, affordable condos, family homes, and baller “retreats.” They’re kicking down a four-night stay for up to ten people in a Tahoe house.

About Alpine Meadows

TWS readers love this uncrowded Tahoe resort: “Alpine meadows is the most underated resort in the country, epic hiking to get pow for days!!!” “It has a home mountain feel.” “Fun hikeable terrain!”

Alpine Meadows is in North Lake Tahoe with seven mountain bowls and open boundaries for epic access to the backcountry. If you prefer park, the resort comes equipped to rip with the Shreadows terrain parks including two intermediate parks and advanced Dance Floor park. This place is a bit of a local’s secret-cat’s out of the bag now…

Homewood Mountain Resort comes with a view.

What? You’ve never been to Homewood? Then you haven’t shredded the backside bowls, the tree runs, or the fast groomers… and you definitely haven’t taken in one of the best lake views in Tahoe. Got a newbie in your crew? Send them here for the best beginner runs in Tahoe.

About Sierra-at-Tahoe

TWS readers chimed in on the South Tahoe base resort: “Sierra is my favorite mountain ever ridden. Park and trees all day!” “The snow is amazing, the people are cool, and the vibe is way better than most other resorts. Plus they offer a little bit of everything from park and pipe to tree runs & great groomers.”

Sierra ranked in the 2012 TransWorld Resort Poll as the #7 Best Overall Resort, the Top 10 Best Park, and the #9 ranked Pipe! Should we go on? In addition to consistent feature rankings, Sierra shows up in the Best Vibe ranking year after year-maybe it’s that deep dedication to snowboarding.

TWS readers love the freeriding at Kirkwood: “Go there to huck off some huge cliffs!” “POWDER!” Kirkwood is located in South Lake Tahoe, and huge improvements have been introduced for this season including Expedition Kirkwood, a basecamp for your backcountry needs. Kirkwood has the type of terrain that can handle every event from a banked slalom through their gully, to the Freeride World Tour on imposing sheer faces. With an annual snowfall in the 600-inch range, it’s no wonder freeriders flock.
