Colder temps invite dreams of roaring fireplaces, snuggling up with a steamy drink and a steamy book, and gazing out onto snow-covered peaks from the comfort of your gracious winter home. The varied topography and climate of California make mountain living a possibility up and down the state, but some of the best skiing and snowboarding can be found in Lake Tahoe, where seven world-class ski resorts, majestic mountains and winter homes are abundant. (Granted, the Sierras may be experiencing an unfortunate drought this year—but the wintery wonderland scenery in and around Lake Tahoe is no less awe-inspiring.)

Homes near ski resorts like Squaw Valley and Northstar  may veer toward a cabin motif, but they remain as varied in style, size, amenities, and price point as homes throughout California. Whether you are looking for a cabin in the mountains to serve as a four-season getaway, one to house friends and family pre- and après-ski, or a luxury residence with all the rustic elegance befitting your lifestyle, there is a beautiful option for you. Check out these three ski properties offered for sale by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage throughout the Lake Tahoe area and let us which one captures your snow sensibilities!
