Best Things to Do in Lake Tahoe This Winter Besides Skiing/Snowboarding
Everyone knows Lake Tahoe for its incredible skiing and snowboarding, but there are so many other awesome things to do in the winter! Here's a guide other winter activities to enjoy this winter season 2013 - 2014. Grab the sleds and race down the mountain on a trash can lid rather than skis!
1.) Lake Tahoe Helicopter Tour
With prices starting at $70, Lake Tahoe helicopter rides are the best way to view the pristine beauty of Lake Tahoe. Reno Tahoe Helicopter Tours offers tours all over Lake Tahoe, and they are an incredible idea for something to do in Lake Tahoe with kids. Kids will love to thrill of flying in a helicopter, and this activity is something the whole family will never forget. See Lake Tahoe like no one else does this winter.
2.) Lake Tahoe Fishing Charter
Tahoe Sport Fishing offers year round fishing charters, so don't let the cold weather deter you from catching the big ones. Reel in dinner this winter out on the Lake and don't leave Lake Tahoe empty handed. Kids under 5 are free, but be ready to share the fishing pole with those tadpoles.
3.) Lake Tahoe Sleigh Ride
Gitty up this winter on a Lake Tahoe sleigh ride. This quintessential Lake Tahoe activity has the whole family jumping for joy (especially those pre-teen horse lovers). Also great for a romantic experience riding through the pristine winter wonderland.
4.) Cross Country Skiing
Everyone is always talking about downhill skiing, but why not try something different this year and snap on the cross country skis. With so many backcountry areas to explore, we recommend getting out in the winter scenery and glide through the snow. For cross country ski rentals try Powder House in South Lake Tahoe, or Tahoe Dave's in North Lake Tahoe.
5.) Sledding in Lake Tahoe
Take a trip back to childhood and enjoy a day zipping down the hills on top of a sled! Grab the kids and head to one of the Lake's best sledding slopes, because with free or paid options there is no excuse not to! For free sledding try Tahoe Meadows at Mount Rose, or pay pocket change ($5 - $10) at Granlibakken, North Tahoe Park, or Hansen's Resort. Remember the good old days and give the kids the memories of sledding in Lake Tahoe this winter.
