Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

When it comes to cross country skiing, Truckee sits at another level. Home to a plethora of award winning nordic centers and a vast network of backcountry trails to explore, it can be argued as one of the best places on the planet to strap on a pair of skis and glide away. If you’re tired of the fast paced flow of downhill skiing, cross country skiing in Tahoe - Truckee or even snowshoeing is the perfect antidote. Think of it as winter’s version of hiking… but better.

The Great Ski Race®

Sunday, March 3, 2024

Held annually the first weekend in March, this is one of the largest Nordic ski races west of the Mississippi. Inspired by the route Jack Starratt of Tahoe City took decades ago to deliver the mail when Tahoe was cut off from civilization by heavy snow. The course is a loop that starts and ends at the Tahoe Cross Country Center on machine-groomed trails with skating lanes and double tracks the entire 26 kilometers (~16.2 miles).
