In the past couple of years, residents of Lake Tahoe in the northern shore have been experiencing quite challenging and straining times. The reason behind this is due to the rising level of drought that has hit the region. The drought has negatively impacted the communities living around Lake Tahoe.
The residents rely on the lake as their primary source of living. Besides this never-ending drought, the Olympic Valley has been fought over by politicians.The politics behind Lake Tahoe is brought about by the calls by different individuals to incorporate Olympic Valley. Some individuals and businesses had already bought this idea.
The intended incorporation of Olympic Valley would lead to the damage of the economic status of Squaw Valley Resort and other well-known winter sports terrains and venues. Squaw Valley Ski Holdings was in the forefront opposing the incorporation.
