Upcoming Full Moon Snowshoe Tour - Wednesday, December 11th, 2019
This Wednesday, December 11th, 2019 Tahoe Adventure Company is hosting one of our very special Full Moon Snowshoe Tours. As the moon rises and illuminates the forest around us, our knowledgeable guides will lead you through snow-covered terrain and share interesting facts along the way. See what makes this place so magnificent, then cap it all off with hot drinks and snacks!
Right now we are seeing perfect weather for our tour on Wednesday. As the current storm system clears out, it will give way to a few days of mostly clear skies and low wind. If this trend holds, we will have great conditions for moon gazing and nighttime trekking.
Snow levels around the lake are still low with early season conditions. Higher elevations are seeing a significant snow pack starting to accumulate. After multiple feet over the Thanksgiving weekend, followed by another system of heavy snow, we are starting to really see the winter landscape take hold here.
Full Cold Moon Facts
This month's full moon is known as the Full Cold Moon. It's appropriately named because it signals the winter season coming into full effect. Cold temperatures take hold and nights become long and dark. It is also considered the Long Nights Moon by some Native Americans because it occurs near the winter solstice (the day with the least amount of daylight). Get ready to bundle up and embrace winter!
