Red Lake is one of the easier (10K+) peaks to access year round and makes for a great car shuttle tour in the winter.The only easier peak to summit would be Monument Peak and you'd need a Heavenly lift ticket for that one. Leaving a car at the top and bottom of Carson Pass saves you about 2,400 feet of earning your turns. Park in the Meiss Meadows (Carson Pass north) lot and hop on one of the trails. You can also park at numerous spots along highway 88 which allows for an easy shuttle. In summer you can take a rough FS road up (or close to) Crater Lake. The peak has fantastic views, including Lake Tahoe. After Crater Lake the pitch back to the car provides excellent glade skiing in winter snow or corn. Others will climb back up to the East Buttress for a fantastic corn or powder run back to the car. To the north of the peak is Meiss Meadows and theTahoe Rim Trail. To the east is Stevens Peak.
If you park at Carson Pass you must have a Sno Park Permit, which can be purchased at the Roadrunner or Chevron on the way out of Lake Tahoe in Meyers. If you're coming from the west, Kirkwood usually has a supply, but try to get one beforehand because if they are out you're hosed.
