Well I live here in Tahoe and I think it is the best place in the world. Now i am 13. I have heard people dishing on some of my fav place ie: Alpina Coffe, Mariott, Powderhouse
well lucky for Char74 the powder house along with many other places has been knocked down. At the mariott you can find awesome things for skiiing and snowboarding. Now like someone did is they compared Alpina to Starbucks why the heck would u do that? Alpina is local it is all made there. Starbucks is international u cant compare the two im probably the only who understood that but just try it! ok FOOD: The chart house Great Food NOt so great service! Cantina Yummy Almost everywhere is delicous!!!! Baldwin Beach Or the far end of Pope are my favorite summer hangouts!!!

ANGORA LAKES HIKE FALLEN LEAF LAKE definently go to EMERALD BAY
What to buy: AnYTHING U WANT
What to pay: not extreme
In response to the tip left by Char74, we, the Powder house, would like to offer some further information about our shop and our rental policies. Since 1994, Powder House has grown to become the largest and most complete ski & snowboard rental shop at South Lake Tahoe, California. For convenience and price of ski and snowboard rental packages, you cannot beat the Powder House. We pride ourselves in having been voted Best in Tahoe year after year, by locals. It was stated that our shop is unorganized and inefficient. That is difficult to understand when Char74 states that "Everyone stood in one line and the equipment was given out all at once". Now we ask, is that not organization? In any business setting, it is not uncommon to have to have a waiting period of some duration of time. Because we deal with such a large amount of customers on a daily basis, it is understandable how there would be a wait for techs. Customers are dealt with on a first come, first serve basis. Also, the rumored "odor" that Char74 alleged to have smelled while in our establishment, could have been from one of the 50 or more people who had been in our shop at that time. Regarding ski equipment, the Powder House spends over 100,000 dollars to upgrade its rental fleet annually and continually has their bindings tested to meet industry standards. Considering the fact that Char74 did not return their equipment, because their ski was never found, it would be difficult for a ski patrol to determine the cause of binding release, especially if it was self negligence and not store oversight. In this case, the customer walked in the snow over a hundred yards prior to clicking in their bindings. If snow is not properly cleared from the boot-the ski cannot fully click into the binding and the Powder House cannot perform that service for the customer. As stated in signed contracts, the Powder House is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Regardless, we hope that people still continue to choose the Powder House for their rentals.
What to pay: Rentals range from 21 dollars a day to 50 dollars a day. We offer a variety of brands of ski and snowboard equipment for all different levels of skill.
We walked to this shopping area a few times since it was right across from our hotel. I can't say that the prices were that great but the atmosphere was very Tahoe.
There is alot of action in the village. You can also ride the gondolas.
Other attractions: 24 shops,4 galleries,8 eateries, movie theatre
Side note: there are "buddy bears" all over the village area. They are just colorful bear stautes that make you smile. The coincidence of seeing these 'buddy bears' is that I had just returned from Berlin, Germany in which that city had the bears all over as well.
I have skiied for over 25 years and rented equipment at various locations. The Powder House was the worst experience that I have ever had. To begin with, when I went in to rent their ski equipment, there was no organization to obtaining the equipment. Everyone stood in one line and the equipment was given out all at once. After you signed your paperwork you were left to wait until a tech found you. This created chaos and confusion and made the wait time lengthy. The service was slow and inefficient. It took well over an hour and a half to rent equipment. The techs smelled like alcohol and illegal substances. My first time up on the lift my ski came off for no reason. Ski patrol told me the ski came off because the bindings were not properly set. I was told by numerous locals that the Powder House is known for shotty equipment and service. I received a phone call six weeks after I had left and thought that I was not being charged for the ski and was told that they had just charged me $150.00 for it. Anyone who might be considering using this establishment, I would strongly suggest you to reconsider. There are plenty of ethical decent establishments available in South Lake Tahoe. On a scale of 1-10, I give this establishment a negative 10.
The Heavenly Shops are grossly overpriced. If you park your car in the Raley's Center and walk across the street to shop, you get a ticket. There are a few fast food restaurants here, but you have to park your car at the Raley's center, then when you want to shop in the shops you have to drive across to the ridiculously expensive parking garage and walk a mile to the insanely overpriced stores.
I recommend driving or taking the city bus to the area they call the "Y" - its south where Hwy 89 and Hwy 50 intersect. On one side are the Factory Stores, on the other a block down Hwy 89 is a GREAT women's clothing store called Pandora's Trunk. She sells both new and consignment women's clothing, accessories, shoes, jewelry, purses. GREAT prices! It's a wonderful place to shop if you forgot your jacket or need a cute new dress to go clubbing!
Across the street is a LOCAL coffee shop - Alpina - with wireless and GREAT coffee. Beats Starbucks all to heck.
What to buy: Try Pandora's Trunk for ski jackets, cute coats, tops, pants, seasonal clothing, swimsuits even during the winter! Great purses, jewelry, accessories. Dresses, shoes. Everything a gal could want. She carries high end used clothing and new clothing. All sizes and styles - you don't have to be a size 2 to shop in this store!
What to pay: Very well priced quality merchandise
Heavenly Shopping Center is quite a small collection of shops near the Heavenly skiing slopes in South Lake Tahoe. The center is built around Marriott hotel, and it has several restaurants, a lot of sport shops specialising in skiing and outdoor activities, a few tacky galleries and some other shops.
The prices may be steep during the high seasons, but on low season you can find real bargains, especially in the sport shops. The restaurants are relaxed and still be able to charge outrageously high prices. There are no fast food joints here.
There are a couple of fashion shops, but they are explored really quickly. This is not, at least yet, a replica of Aspen. The galleries seem to sell mostly kitch, not real art.
One of these neat little gifts shops along Hwy 50. They had some nice shirts and sweat jackets that were reasonabley priced.
