Snowmobiling at Zephyr Cove
Upon your visit to Tahoe you absolutely must go to Zephyr Cove and ride a snowmobile.  The brisk wind in your face and breathtaking views will make you want to take this ride over and over again.  Take a tour to the top of Tahoe—on the South Shore’s only lakeview trails. Snowmobiling at Lake Tahoe's Zephyr Cove Resort literally puts you on top of the world! Cruise over mountain meadows to peaks nearly 9,000 feet above sea level. Glide through towering pine and aspen…breathe in the fresh air, marvel at the amazing scenery.  Some of the sites are so beautiful that they are almost surreal, like a magical wonderland.

Photos don't even capture the beauty and splendor of the snow and mountains, you must go and see it for yourself

Thunderbird Lodge at Lake Tahoe
When visiting Tahoe do not miss out on the chance to tour the home of the wealthy yet eccentric Whittell family.  The Thunderbird Lodge is one of the last and best examples of a great residential estate on Lake Tahoe from the period in which prominent San Francisco society built homes on the lake. In addition to the main house, there is a Card House, Caretaker's Cottage, the Cook/Butler's House, an elephant garage, the Admiral's House, the Boathouse with adjoining 600' tunnel, and Gatehouse. The Thunderbird Lodge is an example of an approach to architectural design that is intended to be in harmony with its setting. The siting, design and materials of the buildings, landscape features, walls, paths and driveway are a result of this design philosophy. The Lodge represents a high level of expertise in building crafts, stone masonry, iron work and wood work. Examples of this craftsmanship are evident in the buildings, tunnel, walls, steps and fountains. The Lodge is also an example of the work of Frederic J. DeLongchamps, who served as Nevada's State Architect and was Nevada's most prominent architect of his era.
