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

There’s a reason Palisades Tahoe is regularly voted one of the top ski resorts in the country. From its 1960 Winter Olympic history to its iconic terrain spread across a combined 8 peaks and 6,000 skiable acres and stunning views of Lake Tahoe, Palisades Tahoe is an unrivaled destination for skiing and snowboarding in California.

Discover Palisades Tahoe
You no longer have to choose between the high-octane energy and legacy of Palisades, or the laid-back but adventurous vibe at Alpine. It’s now possible to explore all 6,000 acres of legendary terrain uninterrupted with the Base to Base Gondola. The ability to create your own adventure at these two distinctly different, neighboring mountains has never been easier.

Legendary Lifts

Whether you’re riding Paliasdes’ KT-22 or Silverado on a powder day or skiing off the backside of Alpine’s 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.
