5 Snow Activities To Try This Year

5 Snow Activities To Try This Year

The snow is here and the skiing has been the best we’ve seen in years.  The snow also brings with it the opportunity to try other snow sports.  Check out these off-mountain adventures as part of your Tahoe experience.  

Wilderness Adventures hosts Dog Sled Tours in Squaw Valley.  Experience the thrill and excitement of touring through the hills and meadows of Squaw Valley.  The dog sled team will guide you in a great adventure as a team of eager huskies pulls you through the snowy wonderland.  Bring your camera as there are many photo opportunities along the way.  This is a unique adventure that everyone will always remember. 

2) Fat BikingNorthstar Cross Country Center is now offering Fat Biking (a new form of mountain biking you can do on the snow). These mountain bikes have extremely large tires and can be rented at the Cross Country Center and taken out on the groomed trails.  If you love fat biking, sign up for Northstar's very first fat bike race this Saturday, January 21st as part of the Tahoe Fat Bike Summit & Festival.

3) Snowmobile Tour
Get out with a professional snowmobile tour company and let them take you to some unbelievable places with breathtaking views and scenery.  The guides are very knowledgable and all ability levels are welcome.  Get ready for some exhilarating thrills and a fun way to explore the winter forest trails. 

4) Ice Skating
My top two favorite ice skating spots are in the heart of Northstar Village and at 8,200 feet at Squaw Valley’s High Camp.  The Village of Northstar is the hub of all things apres.  With live music on most nights, smores, fire pits and multiple cabana bars; Northstar is always a lively place to be. At Squaw Valley, the stunning aerial tram ride is almost just as fun as the ice skating you will find at the top.  The Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley views from this venue make for a jaw dropping experience. You can also tour the Olympic museum at the top of the tram. See you on the ice! 

5) Sledding
Kids and adults alike can agree that the most simple way to enjoy the snow is to go sledding. Northstar is home to a legendary tubing that feels more like a roller coaster ride.  Squaw Valley also has a tubing hill at the SnoVentures location, and even some "mini" snowmobiles to let the kiddos rip around a track.
