Your Guide To Lake Tahoe Holiday Events This December
December has officially arrived here in the Lake Tahoe basin and we couldn't be more thrilled. We have received over a foot of fresh snow here in Incline Village this week, multiple feet on the mountain tops, and there's still more to come! And we must say, with the rooftops and treetops dressed in winter white, we are fully feeling the Holiday spirit.
And since this time of year is the most magical time of year, we don't want you to miss out on all of the magical moments that are on the horizon. So this week on the blog, we have decided to forgo our usual market update and instead, share some of the wonderful events that are going on this December - in Incline Village and around Lake Tahoe.
Without further ado, here are some upcoming Holiday events that you
don't want to miss this year!
