Snowshoe Tours North Lake Tahoe


As we begin the New Year in Lake Tahoe, we have abundant snow at higher elevations. The Sierra Snowlab measured 11 inches after Wednesday’s storm. A storm over this weekend may bring additional snow to the base levels of the local ski resorts. In the meantime, snowshoeing through the forests can be a great winter sport that can be enjoyed with the entire family.

The Tahoe Adventure Company has kicked off its snowshoe tours for the 2024 winter season. From Full Moon treks to hikes into Castle Peak with incredible views, their knowledgeable guides will lead you on a fascinating journey.

They provide all necessary gear and offer a comprehensive lesson about snowshoeing through Tahoe’s peaceful and wintery forests.

On the Full Moon hikes, guests will travel by moonlight, while guides discuss natural history and astronomy topics as well as fascinating facts about the moon. There are frequent stops along the way to take in the beautiful views and enjoy snacks and hot drinks. This tour is popular with all levels, ages and abilities.

Snowshoeing Tips:

Dress in Layers: Stay warm by dressing in layers to regulate your body temperature throughout the trek.

Winter Essentials: Don’t forget essentials such as waterproof boots, gloves, and a hat to protect against the winter chill.

Stay Hydrated: Even in colder temperatures, it’s crucial to stay hydrated, so be sure to carry water with you.

Sun Protection: The winter sun can be deceiving; apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the reflective snow.

Capture the Moment: Bring your camera or smartphone to capture the breathtaking winter scenery and create lasting memories.
