Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

Granlibakken offers plenty of Sierra terrain to explore. Enjoy the trails around Granlibakken’s 74-acre resort or head up to Paige Meadows to experience Tahoe’s backcountry. Guests have easy access to popular cross-country trailheads which provide miles of ungroomed Lake Tahoe skiing and snowshoeing terrain. Equipment rentals are available at our rental shop.

Our warming hut is open 7 days a week to help keep the chill off. A 1.5-mile trail around the property and an access trail to Paige Meadows is groomed (flat-groomed, without stride-skiing tracks) when the weather and snow conditions permit.


All sledding tickets must be purchased online.  There will be 1 1/2 hour time blocks for customers with 30 minutes between blocks to clear the hill.  The time blocks will be 8:30 am to 10:00 am, 10:30 am to 12:00 pm, 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm, and 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm.

Customers may not bring their own sleds or saucers, they will be provided by Granlibakken. No more than two (2) sleds or saucers linked together on the sled hill.  Parents who choose to sled down with their children are recommended to have each person on their own saucer.
