Description

This area of White Rabbit does not have a specific name but it’s known for its clear, wide open view of North America’s largest alpine lake, Lake Tahoe. To access, stay skiers right through the access gate. Stay skiers right for about 300 feet and then you can drop into a wide open bowl with sparse tree coverage that allows for the amazing views of the Lake. There are other views of the lake around Northstar but this is by far the best and most wide open on the entire mountain.
