Unfortunately, Lake Tahoe is usually freezing cold-even in the summer. The lake is fed by snowmelt from the surrounding Sierra Nevadas all year long. Additionally, Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the United States (behind Crater Lake in Oregon) with an average depth of 1,000 feet so it�s difficult for the sun to warm the lake during the summer months. I wasn�t brave enough to go swimming but Chris and Greg proved that they are able to withstand freezing cold temperatures and have fun at the same time.
