The designers of Zip Yosemite, Experience Based Learning, focuses on adventure and safety in building their courses, but they also take care to look after the environment. The company uses Professional Ropes Course Association–accredited builders, who anchor single cables to trees using the Eco-Wrap system, a bolt-free method that doesn't pierce the tree and invite criticism from its grandparents. Using this system, the company can string six ziplines up to 1,000 feet long at heights of up to 80 feet through the aromatic canopies of incense cedars and ponderosa pine trees. Guides take visitors darting down these single-cable paths and across three suspension bridges. Then, they rappel toward the forest floor at one of two rappelling stations. As visitors glide through the forest, they can catch glimpses of wildlife as well as the Fresno Dome and other natural rock formations.
At 6,200 feet above sea level, Sailing Ventures' certified captains lead small groups into Lake Tahoe's waters, teaching them the skills needed to navigate their own aquatic adventures. The instructors can ferry students from beginner to advanced levels, with lessons catered to everyone from families to seasoned sailors wanting to make practical use of their anchor tattoos. Alternatively, the crew charters yachts into the lake, leaving passengers to enjoy the scenery.
Carved by glaciers, Lake Tahoe's bays and coastline set the perfect backdrop for Sailing Ventures' expeditions. Snow-capped mountains and dense forests paint the horizon as boats float atop waters clearer than the windows at a dermatologist's office.

South Tahoe sparkles during the day and then again at night. Day trips to Emerald Bay State Park make for fantastic photo opportunities of the lake as it shimmers within a bowl of glacier-carved granite. Autumn in Lake Tahoe affords some of the best mountain-biking opportunities in the country, and winter brings in the ski bunnies with nearby slopes that provide complimentary shuttle service to the hotel. Snow-shoers and hikers can take in the staggering Glen Alpine Falls, which cascade 65 feet down the rock face and provide sightseers with beautiful views, natural sounds, and free legal advice. Evening jaunts out on the town among the glimmering nightclubs and casinos pave the streets silver with slot-machine earnings.
