Palisades Tahoe Ski Resort Overview

Palisades Tahoe is an internationally renowned ski resort in North Lake Tahoe, California. It spans more than 6,000 skiable acres after the two ski resorts joined forces in 2011. The ski resort features 42 lifts and 270 trails as well as the European-inspired Village at Palisades Tahoe featuring nearly 60 restaurants, bars, boutiques, and art galleries.

Palisades Tahoe ski area snowfall averages 450 inches each season, offering skiers and riders one of the longest ski seasons in Lake Tahoe (often through the 4th of July) and establishing the mountain as a top destination for spring skiing and boarding. Palisades Tahoe also boasts one of the region’s only mountain-top beginner areas and several intermediate skier havens, including Shirley Lake and the newly renamed Pacific Crest Bowls.

Palisades Tahoe has everything from groomers to chutes, and visitors are guaranteed to find something suitable for their skill set. Access either mountain's base by hopping aboard the free Palisades Tahoe/Alpine shuttle between ski resorts.
