Voted #8 Best XC Ski Center in North America by USA Today
Trails Update

Updated 22 February 2020

The groomers and shavelers have been putting in extra time moving snow in an effort to keep skiing another day.

Beware of thin spots, firm spots, and other low snow hazards, especially on the lower trails.

Trail of the Day: Shady Red

ALPENGLOW 20K tomorrow, February 23. We have a modified course for you all to come check out. With 3 race distances of approximately 20km, 10km, or 5km; there is a race distance for everyone. Race entry- $40 suggested donation for Adults, and $15 for kids. For $5 more you can get a nice bowl of vegetarian chili at the end of the race. Registration day-of only from 8:30-9:30am.

Dog owners: All access to the Dog Trails is thin and requires walking and/or delicate skiing. We recommend you excercise your dogs elsewhere until we receive more snow. We are sorry. Thank you for your understanding

We need shoveling help to keep the trails open, especially on Green Trail. Any volunteers? You can come in to the Nordic center and ask for direction- we have shovels and a snow moving tub out there for you. The best time to transport snow is 1-4pm. Thank you in advance.

Please scroll down for Dog trail hours and our Fat Bike Policy.

We are open 8:30am-5pm daily. Yellow check mark means trail is partially open.

Fat Bike Policy

We do not allow any fat bikes at Tahoe XC during the winter season. We apologize for any inconvenience, but our trail system is groomed specifically for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. At this time, we do not have the capacity to create specific trails for fat bikes and we cannot allow them on our ski and snowshoe trails because they affect the quality of our grooming. Thank you for your cooperation and for understanding.
