Spring has sprung in the Tahoe area and as temperatures heat up, so does the fun at local ski resorts and around town. This month, rock out at the WinterWonderGrass Festival at Palisades Tahoe, join the party (in costume) at Heavenly’s pond skim, or saddle up for a fat bike adventure on the snow, plus much more. We’ve done the deep research for you on the best things to do in Tahoe including museums, cultural events and food tours and more. Speaking of food, we also have an extensive list of our best restaurants in Tahoe, and if you’re planning a weekend, the best places to stay.
Don’t forget the sunscreen! Although weather in April is mild, the sun is in full swing. Average temperatures in the 40s – 50s and only about 30 inches of snowfall.

It’s always a party at Heavenly’s annual Pond Skim! See participants ski or board off a snow jump and across the water in the hopes of reaching the other side — in style, of course. Bring your sunscreen, sunglasses and wildest costume. There will be live music and giveaways from 1-3pm.
Fat-Tire Snow Biking
Try something new — what better way to follow up a morning of spring skiing than an afternoon on a fat bike adventure in the snow? Trade in your skis for wheels and take on the groomed trails of the Northstar Cross-Country trail network. Northstar offers top-of-the-line rental equipment and private guides to help with technique, not to mention a vast knowledge of the area to provide a nice tour of Northstar while leading you from one spectacular view to the next.
