Hi my husband and one year old son will be there that week, staying at incline village. What can we expect weather wise? Any suggestions of things to do that time of year?

That time of year is a true shoulder season with unpredictable weather. The normal weather pattern being cold and sunny with some snow and more likely, rain thrown in.

The beaches should be clear of snow but the water will be frigid so you could visit Sand Harbor for a picnic and to take in the views. You could also take a day to drive to Emerald Bay and see south lake while you're there. The lake cruises run year round from Zephyr Cove. Are you staying at the Hyatt? Its a beautiful property with fire pits on the beach and a heated pool to enjoy.

We will also be open at Lake Tahoe Boat Rides beginning on the 28th of April We're located in South Lake Tahoe, but the drive down is beautiful and as Rumr said you should definitely drive to Emerald Bay. Depending on what you think you're son would be up for, we have either a sailing cruise or powerboat tour that you would love.

I also agree that the beach at the Hyatt and Sand Harbor will be great places to hang out. Squaw should have ice skating open by then as well. Take the tram up and try out the hot tub and pool. The Vikingsholm at Emerald Bay won't be open, but the path down should be and would be great for a sunny day. It's a steep one mile each way so keep that in mind.

Rumr also has it exactly right on the weather. Hope you get the sunny and cold.
