Half Day Snowshoe Adventure

Guided snowshoe trip Lake Tahoe

Join us on a half-day adventure into the snowy Tahoe National Forest. On this adventure, we will be hiking with snowshoes, immersing ourselves in the forest on a homemade secluded winter trail. On this beginner/intermediate adventure, we head up the mountain 800 feet in elevation to one of our favorite views, Pauly's Point. Views of the world-renowned ski resorts, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, are enjoyed as they nestle into the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Snacks, photo opportunities, and conversation of the history and surrounding area are enjoyed as we take a break enjoying the scenery. High snowy alpine meadows are meandered through as we head back down the mountain, completing a loop as we reach the end. Due to the seclusion, seeing another person is highly unlikely. So, step off the beaten path and allow us to show you a true mountain outing you won’t surely forget.

This hike is suitable for all ability levels. However, due to the elevation gain, uneven surfaces, and ever-changing snow conditions, this hike is considered intermediate in difficulty, so be ready to break a little sweat. All who attend will be rewarded greatly by the experience.


This snowshoeing tour takes place only minutes from the Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski resorts. From a private access meeting location, we follow a secluded trail through the woods to one of our all time favorite viewpoints. Throughout the hike, iconic scenery of Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, and the Sierra Crest can be enjoyed in this sparsely populated zone, allowing for an uninterrupted immersive experience.


Due to the hike's central location, this snowshoe tour can be accessed with ease from Tahoe City, Truckee, Kings Beach, Incline Village,

Tahoma, South Lake Tahoe. and Reno.
