Wandering Lake Tahoe's West Shore

THE ''Magical West Shore'' may sound like a term straight out of travel agent school, but spend a week or a weekend on the stretch of Lake Tahoe between Tahoe City and Emerald Bay and you may fall under the same spell that draws visitors back year after year.

Throw a dart at the map of the West Shore and anywhere it lands won't be far from fishing, hiking, camping, rock climbing, in-line skating, water skiing, parasailing, mountain biking, four-wheeling and a host of other summer activities.

In winter, you'll be near nordic and alpine skiing, backcountry snowboarding, telemarking, sledding, snowshoeing, snowmobiling or a host of other activities.

If all the outdoor recreation wears you out, you can take in cocktails or dinner at a selection of eateries that serve everything from full-course gourmet meals to chicken pot pies. Even when it's crowded, by local standards, the West Shore remains a hospitable tranquil place.
