The travel Web site Orbitz.com says Lake Tahoe is the Number One destination among its travelers booking hotel and vacation packages between November 20th and May first.
Mammoth Lakes, California ranks second, followed by Park City, Utah; Breckenridge, Colorado; and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Orbitz Ski Index gave Lake Tahoe high marks especially during the early spring. That's when it says "visitors can satisfy two urges in one day" - skiing and golfing.
Orbitz notes there are seven ski resorts and expansive terrain spread over more than 17-thousand acres at Tahoe. It says after a half day on slopes, travelers can head down to the base of the Sierra Nevada to play any of the dozens of golf courses in the area.
