Often voted one of North America’s best ski resorts, Palisades Tahoe is known for its world-class terrain, vibrant ski culture, and Olympic heritage as host of the 1960 Winter Games. If you’re coming for deep powder and steep chutes and bowls set to the gorgeous backdrop of Lake Tahoe, we’re renowned for that. If you’re brand new to skiing or snowboarding, you’ll appreciate our forgiving learning zones, welcoming instructors, and convenient access. With consistent snowfall that lasts late into the season and a lively spring skiing scene complete with music festivals and ample sunshine, Palisades Tahoe boasts one of the longest ski and snowboard seasons in the country.



Olympic Valley Terrain

With progressive terrain for every ability and a vast 3,600 skiable acres, Olympic Valley is home to everything from mountain-top beginner slopes with views of Lake Tahoe to plunging chutes and wide-open bowls that have bred Olympic champions and ski movie stars. Ride legendary lifts like KT-22 or Siberia, then drop in to hunt for powder stashes or perfect corduroy.
