Well it depends on what you want to do. For skiing, you have a better chance of snow in late December.

Yes, you can get good views without hiking into the forest.

You will get more informative answers if you explain what you would like to do on your visit.

Late November is early for the snow season. The longer you wait the better the chances for snow. The most snow usually falls January - March. Along with the snow will be more visitors to Lake Tahoe.

There is scenery, but if it has snowed, some of the roads will close for the season and you would not be able to drive to see Emerald Bay. You can still take the Tahoe Queen paddleboat cruise which goes into Emerald Bay. Its worth getting out on the water so see the sights. Bring warm clothing, as it is invariably windy on the boat trips.

WE were there one Thanksgiving week, late Nov. and there was not much snow. Still plenty of hiking, even bike riding.

You never know until you get there what the weather will be like.

Make sure if your late November coincides with Thanksgiving. That will be a busy time and you will need to reserve early.

Thank you all. Don't intend to hike or ski. More wanting to go there to absorb the scenery and take some nice photos.
