Snowshoeing in Lake Tahoe stands out as a captivating experience, boasting scenic trails suitable for both novice and seasoned snowshoers alike. Before embarking on your adventure through Lake Tahoe's snow-covered trails, here are essential tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

  1. Stay Weather Wise: Always check the weather forecast before heading out. Be aware of any incoming storms, and plan your snowshoeing excursion on days with clear weather conditions.

  2. Avalanche Awareness: Prioritize safety by checking avalanche conditions. Opt for areas with minimal risk, and if venturing into avalanche-prone terrain, equip yourself with essential safety gear – a shovel, beacon, and avalanche probe – and know how to use them.

  3. Navigate with Confidence: Plan your route in advance and carry a detailed map with you. Familiarize yourself with the trail, landmarks, and potential rest points to ensure a smooth and stress-free snowshoeing experience.

Layer up with a base layer, mid-layer (fleece or wool), and a waterproof outer layer. Don't forget waterproof boots to keep your feet dry!
