The string of smaller Tahoe communities and state parks along Hwy. 89 is collectively known as the Lake Tahoe West Shore. Lake Tahoe’s West Shore is full of beautiful beaches. With its close proximity to Homewood Ski Area, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows, the Westshore is a great location for easy ski and snowboard access. West Shore offers some of the most extravagant and unique homes in all of Tahoe in this area.
