Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, straddling the California-Nevada border. It is particularly famous as a tourist destination for its unique combination of stunning beaches and ski resorts. The lake, which is the largest alpine body of water in the U.S., was formed about two million years ago, and is known for the clarity of its waters and the panorama of surrounding mountains.
