You sun burn twice as fast in Tahoe! WEAR SUNSCREEN

Did you know that you are over a mile and a half closer to the sun when you're in Lake Tahoe and consequently burn almost twice as fast?  It pays to wear the right sunscreen when you're playing up here.

 Go for a waterproof liquid or cream sunscreen with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection and an SPF of at least 30 (preferably 50+). 

Re-apply liberally and often!  Don't trust your body to tell you when you need more, Tahoe is known for its "sneaky sunburns" -- Just because there's a low temperature and a lake breeze dosn't mean you're not getting burnt to a crisp.
