Sledding and Snowmobile Rentals
The most popular winter destination in the North Tahoe Regional Park is the snow play area located near the upper parking lot of the Park. The sled hill is groomed to make it easier for sledders to climb up the hill and to make it more fun to go down!
Snowmobiles are available for rent and use on the designated track.
The North Tahoe Winter Adventures office is located across from the upper-level restrooms near the main parking lot by the bottom of the sled hill. The cost is $5 per person for sledding, including the sled. Snowmobile rental is $60/half hour. You must be 18 to operate the snowmobiles.
Note that any use of this groomed sled hill requires a $5 ticket. Personal snowmobiles are not permitted in the North Tahoe Regional Park or on the track.
During the winter, Tahoe Adventure Company offers a variety of snowshoe tours and hikes. These will take place at the North Tahoe Regional Park as long as snow conditions allow! Here is a list of this winter's tour dates.
For more info on any of the tours from Tahoe Adventure Company, call (530) 913-9212, toll-free at (866) 830-6125, or visit www.tahoeadventurecompany.com.
70 tree platforms are connected by a variety of bridges and/or zip lines. Every participant wears a climbing harness and is connected to a safety cable at all times. A unique way to experience the Tahoe forest in the winter, the Adventure Park offers courses for all levels, from beginner to advanced. The course is open rain, snow or shine.
For Winter 2019-2020 the Adventure Park will be open through the New Year holidays and then will close for the season until April. Please visit the Tahoe TreeTop website for more information or to make a reservation. 530-581-7563
At the entrance to the North Tahoe Regional Park is the Children’s Sled Hill. This sled hill is the perfect match for those first-time or younger sledders. Users must bring their sled and pay the $5 North Tahoe Regional Park parking fee, or have a Resident Sticker or Park Supporter sticker on their windshield.
For those interested in a quieter, more peaceful way to explore the winter wonderland, cross-country skiers and snowshoers can explore the groomed trails throughout the Park and surrounding public lands. Don’t forget to visit some of the most majestic Incense Cedars on the North Shore via the “Cedar Trail.”
Our friendly grooming staff requests that snowshoers and walkers, please stay on the right side of the groomed trails to leave the center of the groomed track for cross-country skiers.
Dogs are welcome to bring their owners along for skiing or snowshoeing, but please make sure to pick up after your pet. Please be considerate.
Please note that there are no cross-country ski or snowshoe rentals in the North Tahoe Regional Park. Please bring your own equipment or pick some up on the way to the Park!
Grooming of the trails: There is no set schedule for grooming the trails at the Park. Snow conditions, available personnel, temperature and requests for grooming from the Concessionaire at the sled hill are all factors that determine when the groomer is in operation. District staff attempts to groom the trails 3x per week, weather and staffing dependent. Our groomers will attempt to send information (and some pictures!) to our PIO for updates to social media when the groomers are headed out to groom the trails. We groom approximately 6 miles (10K of trail). Click here for a quick map view traced out by our groomers on Google maps for an idea of the trails that are groomed. Please note this is not to scale and was not done using a GPS.

During the winter season, the field is the home of the Sierra Nevada College Eagles Lacrosse Team. Thanks to their support the District was able to purchase a snow pusher that allows the field to be cleared for use and play throughout the winter. The team has first access to the field for practices and games, but it is open to the public whenever not in use. The District attempts to clear the field within 24 hours of snow, staffing and weather dependent. Due to health concerns, please NO DOGS on the turf field!
The Scout Camp area is rented through the winter (and summer) for Boy and Girl Scout troops (winter badges) and other youth-oriented groups. It features rustic camping areas and fire rings. A log structure with a wood burning stove is available for group gatherings or use by Scout Leaders.
