January around Lake Tahoe in photos

Is it me or is Lake Tahoe beautiful no matter what time of year?  From its snow-capped peaks to its crystal blue waters, Lake Tahoe is one of the most picturesque places in existence.  For that reason, and many others, it's constantly photographed, and winter is no exception. 

We saw that winter beauty on display around Lake Tahoe last month, and especially on those days following snowfall. Few things compare to Lake Tahoe's landscape following winter snowfall (hello, powder days!). As such, experience the stunning views below in January's edition of "Around Lake Tahoe in photos."

This sweet girl has had so many exciting milestones in a few short months. Two of which include ice skating by herself and conquering her fear of ski school! Do your littles know how to ski? Did you teach them or get them lessons? We had her in ski school and it's a must! Check out why on my blog (link in profile). Many thanks to @northstar_california for such an awesome program that instilled so much confidence in our babe!! #northstarambassador Leggings: @nimbusleggings Her outfit: @cottononkidsusa . . . #mombloggers #bayareablogger #sfblog #sfblogger #laketahoe #leggingsarepants #californialife #mommyandme #youngskiers #californialifestyle #winterfun #iceskating #tahoelife #mommyandmefashion #truckee

Colin Lygren

Colin Lygren is a recovering news reporter seeking a new life in a ski town. While he is originally from Sacramento, Tahoe is the place Colin has always called home. He started visiting the region at just a year old and practically grew up on the slopes with his dad and sister. When he is not writing for Tahoe Ascent, Colin is shooting pictures and video or getting up early to make sure he gets fresh tracks, whether it be a groomer day or a powder day. In the summer, Colin likes to relax on the beach by Lake Tahoe’s blue waters or fly fish in the Truckee River.
