I recommend saving this Lake Tahoe cross-country ski or snowshoe route for when the storms are raging or just quieting down. It's not a long adventure but a worthwhile one when there's fresh snow!

A wonderful location for beginners and experts to cross-country ski and snowshoe is Hope Valley. As of today (12/6/18) the snow is incredible. Here are directions to find the Hope Valley Sno-Park and some other considerations about winter play in the immediate area.

It's that time of the month again for my newsletter. This little fireside chat features some Donner Party inspired thoughts as I've been researching the tragedy pretty heavily this past month. Also, there's an audio transcription beneath the header pic if you just want to hear me read the 5-minute piece.

Tahoe did receive some snow this past week (over Thanksgiving 2018), but we're hoping for a lot more this week. Carson Pass is the most likely place to currently snowshoe, but this article features some other places on the south shore of Lake Tahoe to consider when we do receive more snow.

At this point in the season, the hike to Mount Rose may not be an option for many people. However, it's worth taking a look at if you're on the north shore of Lake Tahoe. And, it's most definitely a must-do hike during the warmer months of the year. Amazing panoramic views of the entire region!

Hiking the Stevens Peak Loop in South Lake Tahoe is an absolute blast, but it does require you to know how to read a topographical map and orient yourself. Read my article about hiking to Stevens Peak for directions and considerations.

The weather is ideal right now for hiking to Red Lake Peak, out of the Carson Pass trailhead. Read my latest Tahoe Trail Guide article for directions and considerations about this incredible Meiss Country hike.

If you're in South Lake Tahoe and want to a hike a fairly remote trail but not have to drive too far from town, the hike to Dardanelles Lake will satisfy your goal.

The hike to Round Lake (via the Big Meadow Trailhead) is a relatively easy day hike that is approximately 7 miles long and features about 1250 feet of total elevation gain.
