With its elevation of 6,225 feet (1,897 meters) and its location in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Lake Tahoe isn’t exactly known for warm waters you’ll want to relax in all day. What draws visitors is the striking setting of bright-blue water against snowcapped peaks, creating an alpine paradise for water sports that keep you (mostly) dry.
