Explore Granlibakken’s ungroomed terrain on skis and snowshoes

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

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.

Strap on cross country skis or snowshoes and begin your adventure at Granlibakken.

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.

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Who says you have to power through crowded mountains and long lift lines to have a good time? Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge offers 74 acres of an outdoor playground including its own intimate ski and snowboard hill and separate snowplay area, ideal for families with children, beginning and intermediate skiers.

All ages are welcome on the Ski & Sled Hill!

Affordable and packed with just as many thrills found at nearby ski mountains, guests can rent equipment (skis, snowboards, poles, boots, cross country skis, snowshoes and helmets) and then climb aboard a lift for a full or half-day worth of downhill adventure.

There’s even ski school for first-time skiers and boarders or folks looking to fine-tune their turning skills. Lessons are offered twice in the morning and once in the afternoon, Friday through Sunday.

For a quick break or nourishment in between runs there’s a warming hut and the Ski Hut Snack Bar which features Mexican foods, hot soup, chili and daily specials.

The ski hill and snack bar are open Friday through Sunday. Adult lift rates are $24 full day, $16 half day. Full day for children 12 and under is $14 and half day, $10. For private parties and corporate team building you can rent the ski hill for an entire day Monday through Thursday. Call (530) 581-7533 or (800) 543-3221 for information or reservations.

Meanwhile, sledding at Tahoe is a time-honored tradition and for years generations of families have traded their skis for saucers to slide down Granlibakken’s snowplay area.

The snow play hill, open daily, ensures enough gradient for slick and swift rides by way of plastic saucers (tubes, toboggans and metal sleds are not allowed).

Granlibakken also offers plenty of Sierra terrain to explore by way of cross country skis or snowshoes. Guests have easy access to popular trailheads which provide miles of ungroomed terrain. Ski and snowshoe rentals are available daily.
