Five Facts About Lake Tahoe

1. January is the snowiest month of the year in Lake Tahoe with an average snowfall of forty-five inches.

2. Tahoe has a dog-friendly culture with miles and miles of dog-friendly trails and several dog-friendly beaches.

3. The lack of algae in Lake Tahoe gives it its preternatural blue hue while the absence of fine particles in the water account for its legendary clarity.

4. The word Tahoe originated from the Anglo mispronunciation of the Washoe word “Da ow a ga” meaning Edge of the Lake or Big Water.

5. The Jeffrey Pine is Lake Tahoe’s most dominant tree, followed by the Sugar and Ponderosa Pines.
