Sled & Ski Hill
Granlibakken Tahoe's historic ski hill is an affordable place to learn to ski and snowboard. The ski and snowboard hill is serviced by two surface lifts that provide a unique opportunity to exit the lift partway up the slope, as apposed to chairlifts, which typically carry skiers and snowboarders all the way to the top of the slope. This is ideal for beginners since they will be able to progressively move up to higher and steeper slopes as their skills improve. The beginner “bunny slope” is accessed by a rope tow. The intermediate slope is accessed using a Poma button lift. From the top of the hill you can capture a stunning selfie of yourself with Lake Tahoe in the background. One of the very first hills cleared for skiing and sledding at Tahoe.
Lessons are offered by dedicated and enthusiastic ski and snowboard instructors. Equipment rentals are available in the Ski Hut, for use in lessons, on the hill, at other ski areas, and for x-country skiing and snowshoeing.
Our ski hill is the place that many Tahoe skiers first put skis on, and this tradition continues for many families, before they head to the big, busy mountains.
Lifts run 7 days a week during peak season, and then Friday through Monday and on holidays for winter.
Sledding tickets include sledding saucer rentals. Bring your own waterproof gloves, waterproof pants, jacket, sunglasses and snow boots.
