LAKE TAHOE & THE SIERRA
The crystal clear water of Lake Tahoe is only 45-minutes from campus.
The Sierra Nevada, which stretches from California into Nevada, is one of the defining geologic and geographic landmarks of the region. Located only 38 miles from downtown Reno, Lake Tahoe is considered one of the most picturesque spots on the planet. Tahoe is approximately 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, with 72 miles of scenic shoreline. Tahoe’s famous sky-blue water is 99.7 percent pure, about the same as distilled water.
