April around Lake Tahoe in photos

During a good snow year, April is a standout month, though there really are no bad months in Lake Tahoe. But during a record-breaking snow year, April is one of the best months in Lake Tahoe, as the past few weeks proved. Powder days, check. Spring skiing, check. Warm beach days to the backdrop of snow-capped mountains, check.

These are experiences that you can't just have any time of year in any type of place. They are experiences unique to Lake Tahoe. Where else could you have skied fresh powder in the morning, taken a lunchtime hike, and enjoyed a sunset paddle?

But you needn't look any further than Instagram to see why April is one of my favorite months around Lake Tahoe. This past month ran the gamut, from final powder days at Northstar to beach weekends at Lake Tahoe to sunsets over snow-capped mountains. Below, find some of our favorite photos around Lake Tahoe from April.

Who's stoked for warm summer nights? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Southern born and bred, Spencer was bitten by the travel bug at a young age, flying on a plane for the first time at age five and by himself for the first time at seven. While he continues to travel around the world in search for the best whiskey, Spencer now calls Reno home, where his search is for the best cocktail (and first tracks, naturally). He has written about travel, food, and drinks for a number of publications that have included the Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, Outside Magazine, and Travel + Leisure, just to name a few.
