CATEGORIES : RECREATION : SNOWSHOEING

SNOWSHOEING

Snow shoeing is one of the fastest growing sports in America.  It’s a great activity for anyone who enjoys a great workout, walking and observing nature.  This is a sport anyone can master while taking in the unparalleled beauty of the Sierra Nevada.  In the North Lake Tahoe area there are many incredible places where you can venture.

The equipment for the sport has changed considerably over the years.  Snowshoes have become very lightweight, versatile and easy to use.  Most snowshoe models are designed and sized with certain ranges of snow conditions and terrain in mind.  We use the rugged and lightweight MSR brand that has integral traction devises, and accepts various tail extensions for deep snow conditions. A new pair of snowshoes runs from around $100.00 on up.  If you would like to try before you buy there are a number of local sports shops here, where you may rent snowshoes by the day or week.  Also, most water resistant hiking boots, or Sorels will work well with your snowshoes.  

Winter travel, beautiful and serene though it can be, has a dangerous side that takes many winter travelers by surprise.  Avalanches, sudden storms, hypothermia, and awkward snow conditions can be life threatening.  The best way to protect yourself from these hazards is to learn as much as you can about them before you go.  Books, classes, and videos on back-country trekking are available in local libraries, outdoor stores, and book shops.  Be sure to leave a detailed itinerary with friends before you head out, and do your research before you hit the trails.  Below find information on snow shoeing areas and sporting goods stores.

Snow Shoeing Areas   

Sheeps flat
is about ten minutes from Incline Village and is a good area to snowshoe.  There are many trails in this area and it is very scenic.  Sheeps Flat has gentle slopes and would be ideal for a beginner although if you venture out of the meadow there are a multitude of terrains and views.  On your right notice the broad meadow, this is Sheeps Flat.  To your left, traversing the hillside is a service road, which eventually leads to a weather/microwave station overlooking Lake Tahoe and the Martis Valley.  This trek is about 5 miles one-way.  Remember to always carry plenty of water.
Directions – Take highway 267 (Mt Rose Highway) for about 8 miles toward Reno from Incline Village until the road will levels out.

Tahoe Regional Park is in Tahoe Vista about 15 minutes from Incline Village.  Offering groomed trails that are ideal for beginners.  The parking lot charges $3.00 fee per day to use the trails.
Directions – From Incline Village go west on Highway 28 about 10 miles to Tahoe Vista.  Turn right on National Avenue and follow the signs to Tahoe Regional Park.

Sugarpine Point Park is a particularly scenic area on Lake Tahoe’s west shore.  There are lots of easy groomed trails for beginners.  They have a parking lot and there is no charge to use the park in the winter.
Directions – Take highway 28 west from Incline Village to Tahoe City.  Go left toward Homewood .  On the left about ten miles is Sugarpine Point Park,
