South Shore up for ‘America’s Best Ski Destination’

Tribune staff report

The South Shore of Lake Tahoe is looking to win America’s Best Ski Destination in USA Today’s online poll.

Voters can weigh in until Dec. 30 at 8:59 p.m. at

“We’re looking for a sweep,” Carol Chaplin, executive director of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority, stated in a press release. “USA Today readers let the nation know in 2012 which lake was No. 1. Winning “Best Ski Destination” would be the perfect way to begin the New Year.”

Nathan Borchelt, respected national ski/travel journalist, selected the field of finalists, with the South Shore among them. The winning ski destination will be announced Jan. 1.
