The Lake’s great depth and volume of water always in motion keep it from freezing. Some ice forms in Emerald Bay at times, as well as in protected inland areas.
Lake Tahoe’s water does not eventually flow into the ocean. The Truckee River, it’s only outlet, flows east through Reno and drains into Pyramid Lake in Nevada.
