More snow to Cross Country Ski in near Tahoe City

Cross Country Skiing Tahoe CityAs promised by the weather forecast, we woke up to 10 inches of new snow this morning. After clearing the driveway we headed straight to the Tahoe Cross Country ski center to make some tracks in the fresh powder.  When we arrived at the parking lot, it was almost full.  To my surprise we only saw 3 people while we were out on the trails.

We headed out to Lakeview  on the freshly groomed trails.  Lakeview Trail is located near the warming hut on the Orange Trail.  The warming hut is a great place to get a drink of water or make some tea or cocoa.

When we arrived at Lakeview we saw that it had not been groomed, so we broke a trail to the top.  The view from the top of  is well worth the trek up.  Plus we knew we would be coming down the trail in almost a foot of fresh powder.

Once back at the Lodge, we enjoyed a warm cup of coffee at the Free Heel Cafe.  The cafe has a simple but great menu.  This is a great place to sit by the fire, and share about the wonderful adventures you had that day.

I hear we are in for a lot more snow this weekend, so I can’t wait to get back up there. Whether you are striding or skating, its an awesome place to be.

This weeks skiing at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area at Lake Tahoe, Ca 96145

This weeks skiing at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski area was incredible!

Cross country skiing Lake Tahoe

Last Saturday the trails at the Nordic Center were great.  I skied to the top of Gold trail where the snow coverage was still plentiful.  The higher I went the deeper the snow.

Last Sunday I headed out to the fiberboard.  The last leg, Extra Gold, has not been groomed, but is still ski-able.  On the way up I saw two sets of tracks.  The first set was from a skier that had made it up about three quarters of the way.  The second set of tracks were from a bear that also made it about three quarters of the way, these were the biggest bear tracks that I had ever seen.  Coming back down was great.  There was plenty of snow and very few obstacles.

Cross country skiing Lake TahoeOn Monday I traversed my way up the front side of Lakeview.  I was able to follow snow shoe tracks about half way up the hill. When I got to the top the snow was thin, but still ski-able.

Today was the first day I was not able to go cross country skiing due to weather conditions.  It rained all morning and slowly turned to snow as the day went on.

Hopefully the snow will continue throughout the night and make for good skiing tomorrow.

If you would like to check the weather for tomorrow I recently found a great site: The Weather Geek of Tahoeloco.com

Skiing at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area in the Highlands.

On a snowy day striding can be a great alternative to skate skiing; yesterday was one of those days. The snow was light and the Center had not been groomed yet so I took out the striding skis and had a great time. Snow shoeing is also a lot of fun when the snow is falling.
