Life in Lake Tahoe
Looking for a college near ski resorts? Don’t just take our word that you will ride on some of the best terrain in the world – it’s hard to find a top-ten list out there that doesn’t feature a Tahoe area resort. With Diamond Peak just up the road and nineteen resorts within two hours of campus there is always something for everyone, from first timer to backcountry expert. Remember also, Winter doesn't last forever. There’s also mountain biking, rock-climbing, hiking, and backpacking; sailing, water skiing, paddle boarding, beach volleyball, and kayaking; and some of the continent’s most spectacular sunsets.
