LAKE TAHOE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Lake Tahoe is known as America's playground, and spring is a beautiful time to enjoy all that there is to do in Lake Tahoe. VirtualTahoe.com (http://www.virtualtahoe.com), a leading tourism guide in Lake Tahoe, announced its list of top things to do this April 2014.
"With the ski resorts still open, and the sun shining, spring in Lake Tahoe offers the best of both worlds where you can ski & ride in the morning and take a stroll or bike in the afternoon. Plus, even if you aren't in Tahoe for a last minute ski trip, there are plenty of other fun things to do in April," comments Lindsey Skinner, editor of VirtualTahoe.com.
Here's the list for April 2014:
1.) Last minute skiing & riding
Ski resorts start closing mid April - so the time is now to get in that last minute skiing in before all the snow is gone and the 2014 ski season is over. Some ski resorts will have open runs on weekends through the beginning of May, but most will be shutting their doors mid April.

2.) Reno Tahoe Helicopters
For unbeatable views of Lake Tahoe try Reno Tahoe Helicopters. April boasts spectacular views, and with snow capped mountains now is the time to enjoy the view before the warm summer sun melts it all away. Helicopter rides start at $70 - and Reno Tahoe Helicopters provides the opportunity to see Tahoe and enjoy the exhilarating feeling of helicopter rides.
Cast a reel in April. Early spring offers fishermen/women the chance to get out on the Lake before the chaos of summer starts. The calm Lake will only start getting crowded with summer visitors, so now is the perfect time to take advantage of a quieter Lake Tahoe. Most people have no idea how easy it is to fish in Lake Tahoe and how big the fish are.
