Explore Palisades Tahoe
Get to know Lake Tahoe's most legendary mountains.

While Palisades Tahoe may be best known as Lake Tahoe's winter hub for skiing and snowboarding, the fun doesn't stop come summertime. From our bustling Village in Olympic Valley to the scenic Aerial Tram that whisks you to the mountaintop in just 10 minutes, you'll love exploring your favorite ski resort during a sun-drenched summer in the Sierra.

The High Camp Experience
Enjoy a 10-minute ride on our Aerial Tram that soars from the Village up 2,000' to the mountaintop. Surrounded by sun-drenched views of Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada, High Camp is a stunning backdrop for nature lovers and mountain explorers alike. Once you've reached the top, take your pick of unique activities at 8,200’, including roller skating, e-mountain biking, hiking through wildflowers, and dining al fresco.

S* Valley Ski Resort
One of the most fabled ski resorts in North America, Olympic Valley is home to Olympic champions and was the site of the 1960 Winter Olympic Games. The mountain is famous for its legendary lifts like KT-22 and Granite Chief, as well as its progressive terrain for all levels.


Whether you’re riding Olympic Valley’s KT-22 or Silverado on a powder day or skiing off the backside of Alpine Meadows’ Summit Chair in the spring, these mountains are stacked with the kind of lifts you can’t forget. We’ve named the 11 most legendary lifts at Palisades Tahoe (and yes, it was hard to narrow it down), and offered detailed guides on how to ski and ride them.
