Fun in the Sun

The best way for couples to make the most of Valentine’s Day is to have a fun day playing in the snow around Lake Tahoe. The fresh snow we have received recently will supply tons of fun for any couple, old and young alike.


Lake Tahoe is a world class ski resort destination and is known for its beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and challenging terrain. Consider taking a beautiful gondola ride and check out the terrain at Heavenly resort. The views are sure to impress and provide the perfect backdrop for a couple’s ski photo. Looking for challenging terrain together then Kirkwood is right up your alley with some of the best technical terrain in Lake Tahoe. If you’re a couple that seeks a laid-back and easy-going ski experience, then Sierra-at-Tahoe is perfect for you with fun ski runs and some of the friendliest staff around. 


Nothing beats the feeling of exploring the endless nature of Lake Tahoe on snowshoes. If you are new to snowshoeing there’s no need to feel intimidated because luckily it has a quick learning curve, just walk a little wider, pick up your knees, and now you’re a pro. Snowshoeing is an enjoyable way to experience Tahoe’s beautiful snow-covered shoreline or make your way down to Emerald Bay and experience your own private couple’s escape. Hotel Azure offers complimentary snowshoes making it even easier to blaze your own path this Valentine’s Day.

Cruise Out

Sometimes you just want to take in the views and leave the work to someone else. The Lake Tahoe Bleu Wave offers a variety of cruises throughout the day including trips to Emerald Bay and wine tasting sunset cruises. The M.S. Dixie II will offer a special Valentine's Day cruise. The three-hour adventure offers close-up views of the lake and a unique dinner menu that includes starters, salad, a choice of entrées and dessert, along with a glass of champagne.

On Saturday, February 15th the will host their famous Snowshoe Cocktail races, which is a unique fun experience that will provide plenty of smiles and entertainment after a wonderful meal. 

For a hot and new recommendation look no further than Gordan's Ramsay's Hell's Kitchen restaurant located inside Harvey's resort. The same high standards and delicious foods will be prepared to perfection, but it's suggested to make your reservations early as they have been extremely busy since their opening night.
