Before embarking on your adventure through Lake Tahoe's snow-covered trails, here are essential tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
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.
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.
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.
Bundle Up Effectively: Staying warm is paramount in the snowy outdoors. Dress appropriately for the weather, avoiding moisture-absorbing fabrics like cotton. 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!
