Join OhThePeopleYouMeet founder, Michaela Guzy as she explores the southern shores of one of the oldest, tallest, largest, deepest and purest lakes in the world, Lake Tahoe in wonder!

Skiers and boarders alike, know that the best time to rip and shred in South Lake Tahoe is typically late November – April. Michaela hit the slopes with Olympian hopefuls to perfect her mad skills. She noticed improvement, but isn’t holding out for the next winter games– she’ll leave that to the professionals. After skiing with the locals, she had no choice but to set out to discover why everyone she met was so attached to this place.

South Tahoe is so much more than winter sports! Inspired by the folks at Sierra and Heavenly’s stories, she set out to see what else South Tahoe had to offer. Much to Michaela’s delight, she discovered live music around fire pits, local craft brews along a beer trail, a fancy new hotel, folks working to keep Lake Tahoe BLUE and Emma the Bald Eagle. Did you know that over 2/3rds of South Tahoe’s visitors come May – November for South Tahoe’s hiking and biking trails all along the lake? Locals and travelers hit the beach, the boat shows, SUP and kayak through Emerald Bay.

Through all the colorful locals Michaela met, she realized that South Tahoe is so much more than a winter destination. Check out Michaela’s episode to inspire your next adventure.
