Deep Dive: Cool Facts About Lake Tahoe

Let’s dive into some fun and interesting facts about our beautiful Lake Tahoe:

  1. Deep and Clear: Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the U.S., reaching depths of 1,645 feet. Its water is so clear that in some places you can see over 70 feet down!
  2. Aged to Perfection: This stunning lake is around 2 million years old, making it one of the oldest lakes in the world.
  3. Big and Beautiful: Covering about 191 square miles, Lake Tahoe holds roughly 39 trillion gallons of water. That’s enough to supply everyone in the U.S. with 50 gallons of water per day for 5 years!
  4. Border Crossings: Lake Tahoe straddles the state line between California and Nevada, offering a unique blend of attractions and activities from both states.
  5. Snowy Peaks: The lake is surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which receive an average of 300 to 500 inches of snow each year. This makes Tahoe a winter wonderland for skiing and snowboarding.
