If you're planning a vacation in Lake Tahoe, there are two ways to get a bird's eye view of the high sierra region and see just how vast the area is. On the north shore is the Squaw Valley resort, and their giant tram is the most famous of all the cable cars in California. The multi passenger tram starts from The Village at Squaw and goes midway mountain to the "High Camp Bath and Tennis Club". There is also an ice rink at the top. Bring your bathing suit as taking a dip in the pool or hot tub spa is pretty exciting especially in the winter month when there is a lot of snow all around. The scenic panorama tram views go on forever so this is definitely a photo moment. The cable car building is a landmark and was erected in 1968 and as the car travels up the mountain, the suspended feeling is quite… stomach dropping. The tram operates winter and summer as does the Bath and Tennis Club.
On the south shore of Lake Tahoe, the Heavenly Valley gondola starts right in downtown South Lake Tahoe right on the California- Nevada border and goes up to an observation deck where the entire Lake Tahoe region can be seen. You'll get off halfway up, walk around the observation platform, take lots of photos and then hop back on to go to the top. The eight passenger Heavenly gondola doubles as transportation for skiers in winter, and goes up to 9123 feet about 2.4 miles from the Tahoe shore. At the top you can enjoy a casual indoor / outdoor restaurant and bar called Adventure Peak, but the views are what everyone wants to see.
