While the Bay Area prepares itself for another dousing of rain, a crisp blanket of snow has graced Lake Tahoe and it is downright picturesque. From the glacial mountaintops to the piers and docks on the titular lake, this exceedingly wintery look is the perfect way to gear up for the impending holidays.
