South Lake Tahoe is a city in El Dorado County, California, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, last month I was there, if you would like to know a place for sky, cold, and beautiful views, go there.
Visit the Scenic Gondola Rides
Located one-half block west of California & Nevada Stateline, the Lake Tahoe Gondola is steps from most major lodging facilities, and puts the serenity of an alpine mountain within minutes of six casinos and nearly 5,000 hotel rooms. The eight-passenger cabins take guests 2.4 miles up the mountain in 12 minutes while they enjoy views of Lake Tahoe.
Just when it seems the ride can’t get any better, guests arrive at The Deck – a 14,000 square foot mid-station observation platform. Located at 9,123 feet, guests are treated to views of the Carson Valley, Desolation Wilderness and shore-to-shore views of Lake Tahoe.
