Take the trail less traveled. Enjoy guided or self-guided backcountry skiing experiences in the Tahoe National Forest or at one of Lake Tahoe's surrounding state parks.
We strongly recommend you take an avalanche safety course before traveling in potential avalanache terrain and definitely check out the Sierra Avalanche Center forecast before venturing out.
Private guided backcountry skiiing is available in the Tahoe area through Alpenglow Expeditions.
Granlibakken guests also have direct access to a 1.5-mile trail around the property, and a groomed access trail (flat-groomed, without stride-skiing tracks) to Paige Meadows loop when the weather and snow conditions permit. These popular trailheads lead to miles of ungroomed skiing and snowshoeing terrain to experience Tahoe’s backcountry.
