Palisades Tahoe is famous for its tremendous winter snowfall and its California sunshine (yes, both are possible). While summer days in Lake Tahoe are typically filled with blue skies and bottomless sun, be sure to check our mountain information before arriving. To get the latest on weather forecasts, our Aerial Tram status, or to see what the top of the mountain looks like right now, look no further.

Weather in the mountains can change quickly, and it's always a good idea to check the forecast before embarking on your adventure. Keep your eye on temperature, winds, and precipitation to decide what to pack.
