Jake's Peak - Backcountry Skiing
A Tahoe favorite due to its easy access and minimal approach combined with unsurpassed lake views and perfect steep stashes of powder or spring corn.
Round trip, about 1.5 miles up and down, this can vary depending on the skin track.
Destination Distance From Downtown
This is a more strenuous ski tour with less concern for route finding but 2,350 feet of vertical gain over a 1.5 mile climb.
Time To Complete
You could sprint up it in an hour or do some laps making the most of the powder all day long.
Spring and Winter
Jake's a winter ski destination with a great southeast slope for spring corn as well.
