There’s snow on the ground in Tahoe, and it is a glorious sight to behold. In fact, some of the resorts opened early for skiing and riding, and the sled hills, snowshoe tracks and cross-country trails are already getting lots of love.

While you’re enjoying Tahoe this winter, be extra mindful to not leave anything behind. Our data shows that litter is a serious problem in the winter, just as it is in the summer. With your help, we're tackling winter litter hot spots like the unofficial sled hill at Spooner Summit.

Choose Lake-friendly transportation this winter
If you’re planning a winter trip to Tahoe, or if you’re just looking for a Lake-friendly way to get around, check out our winter transportation webpage.

The page lists options for travel to and around the Basin that puts you in the passenger seat, so you don’t have to worry about chains, traffic and parking. And most importantly, every time you choose Lake-friendly transportation, you’re helping to prevent tailpipe emissions and road erosion that clouds our cobalt blue Lake.

New leadership at TRPA
The Governing Board of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency has selected a new executive director. Julie Regan, TRPA’s current deputy director, was chosen after a nationwide search. She follows Joanne Marchetta who held the agency's top leadership role for the past 13 years.

The League and TRPA work closely on a wide range of issues impacting Lake Tahoe. Sometimes we agree, and sometimes we don’t, but we share a common goal of protecting and preserving the Lake for all to enjoy for generations to come.

Congratulations, Julie. We look forward to working with you as executive director, just as we’ve done for many years.
