Best Places to go Snowshoeing In South Lake Tahoe


The landscape and mountain ranges in South Lake Tahoe are famous around the world. Our Scenic Hiking Tours are always popular in the summer, but there is something inspiring about our corner of Lake Tahoe in the winter, with majestic pine trees sprouting out of the pristine white snow as far as the eye can see. Hiking in the snow is called snowshoeing and it’s not as challenging as you might expect — providing you have the knowledge and skills of a local expert.

That’s where Tahoe Outdoor Adventures comes in, as we offer a diverse range of incredible South Lake Tahoe Snowshoe Tours, all offering something different. We’d like to paint a picture of the beautiful snows capes you can encounter on our voyages, walk around in nature, and get back to your bed at the end of the day.

Snowshoeing in South Lake Tahoe can be tricky depending on the time of year, amount of snowfall, and ever changing weather conditions. Many trails are not accessible by car throughout the winter. People often waste a lot of time by planning out their trips to certain trails, only to get there and find out that they are inaccessible. We hear time and time again that, "we should have booked a snowshoe tour with you from the beginning. We wasted a whole day of our time here trying to find a snowshoe trail that we heard about." We advise coming along one of our safe snowshoe tours that is avalanche free and scouted by our expert guides before hand.
