Jake's Peak is a popular backcountry skiing destination on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. Don't expect to get first tracks - this one is no secret, and you'll probably see a skin track a mile wide going up from the parking lot! Of course, Jake's is popular for a reason; close to the road, nice, steep descent with good snow, and views that can't be beat! This track is just one of many ways down - find your own way down, and watch out for cliffs, drainages leading the wrong way, and poor avalanche conditions. This can be skied (with skins), or snowshoed (and snowboarded), but this is too steep to be a cross-country ski trip. Snowshoers - make your own track as a courtesy to the skiers, please! Dogs are common up here.
