Whether you strap on a pair of long skis or snow shoes, there’s plenty of action off the beaten path around Granlibakken’s 74-acre playground at Lake Tahoe’s west shore.
The terrain is wide open with trails to glide across or stomp through with specially-fitted cross country skis or snowshoes. You can explore acres of forest trails for a weekday or weekend’s worth of discovery and lose yourself with the high sierra backdrop and quiet serenity that only cross country trails can offer. Guests have easy access to popular trailheads that provide miles of ungroomed terrain. Ski and snowshoe rentals are available daily.
You’re in control of how far you want to go and how long you want to push. You can either bring your kids along or leave them at the ski and snowboard hill and separate snowplay area for sledding, beginning and intermediate skiing.
Affordable and packed with thrills, guests can rent equipment (cross country skis and poles, boots, snowshoes and helmets) and then begin their adventure.
For a quick break or nourishment in between cuts through the forest there’s a warming hut and Ski Hut Snack Bar.
