Ski.com Epic Dream Job Stop 9 – Lake Tahoe

Jackson Lebsack finds pow, fun après, and s'more(s) around Lake Tahoe.

10,000+ skiable acres, sunshine, Lake Tahoe views, huge dumps and one of Ski Country’s most unique nightlife options [read: casinos] make the Epic Pass’ Best of Tahoe Resorts imperative bucket list destinations. Whether you want to stay close to the black jack tables in Heavenly’s South Lake Tahoe or revel in a high-end village experience at Northstar, a two-hour drive—at the most—makes all three ski areas doable in one convenient ski trip.

This weekend, Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job hire, Jackson Lebsack, explored The Best of Tahoe Resorts (Northstar, Kirkwood and Heavenly), along with Buddy Ticket recipient Catherine Aeppel.

Check out Jackson and co.’s highlights from Lake Tahoe below:
