Lake Tahoe may be known for skiing in the winter, but when the snow falls on the Sierra Mountains, there are endless ways to experience the season. For those of us who want to slow down and appreciate the beauty of nature, you can hit the forested trails while snowshoeing. Even non-skiers can enjoy fast-paced adventures like snowmobiling and snow tubing. Whether you are vacationing with family or as a couple, there are Lake Tahoe winter activities for everyone. Stay with us at Tahoe Truckee Vacation Properties, and you will be centrally located near everything Lake Tahoe has to offer.
Snowshoeing & Cross Country Skiing
North Lake Tahoe has the most concentrated network of groomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails in the country. Cross country skiing is one of our favorite ways to get outside and enjoy the snow-covered landscape of the region.
Royal Gorge is North America’s largest cross country skiing resort and offers six trail systems across 6,00 acres. Hit the trails and take in views of the Northern Sierras, towering pine trees, and tranquil meadows. Discover the snowshoeing and cross country skiing options at Tahoe Donner Cross Country Center and Northstar Snowshoe Center.
If you are looking for an exhilarating winter adventure that doesn’t require the skill and experience of skiing, then snowmobiling is for you! The best way to explore the North Lake Tahoe wilderness is with one of these snowmobile tours:
Lake Tahoe winter activities are abundant for families vacationing in the area. Many of the resorts offer family-friendly sledding and tubing, perfect for a day of play in the snow. Ride down the 200-yard snow tubing hill at Northstar California, or try sledding with saucers at Granlilbaakken.
The Tahoe City Winter Sports Park has everything you need for a day of winter fun. The park includes an ice skating rink, sledding, snowshoeing, and skiing.
