What you'll do

Get excited to discover the joy that is exploring a winter wonderland on snowshoes. During this experience we will learn briefly about the history of the Lake Tahoe region, and Kingvale's roots at the start of it. We'll get you fitted with appropriately sized snowshoes, which will go over any snowboot you're comfortable with. Please be sure to have boots that are warm and at least water resistant.

We prioritize safety, fun, and learning, in that order. Fortunately, learning to snowshoe is quite easy.

Few outdoor activities are as beginner-friendly. As my father often says, "if you can walk, you can snowshoe." We will review some basic safety procedures, especially if its actively snowing or there was a big recent storm. Likewise, we'll teach you the appropriate technique for snowshing up and down hills, how to traverse slopes, how use your poles, and how to get up after you fall in deep snow. If you plan to venture off-trail ever or go snowshoeing on your own, we also cover some basic snow safety knowledge to help you avoid avalanche terrain.

Overall, you an expect 20-30min of "instruction" time and the rest will be spent leisurely exploring the 85 acres of wilderness. We can go as high and far, (or as slow) as the group desires, and will always make time to capture that perfect family photo!

I am the co-founder of Snow Schoolers, which is Tahoe's only independent platform for ski and snowboard lessons. As much as we believe that anyone can learn to ski or snowboard, we also recognize that for many families not everyone is up for that level of adventure. Snowshoeing is a much more mellow experience and still allows our guests to experience the beauty and winter wonderland ambience that is Lake Tahoe. Personally, I first discovered snowshoeing in 2012 after a knee injury forced me to take a season off skiing, and came to appreciate that snowshoeing is the best way to get the whole family outside together in the snow, regardless of age or athltic abilities.

Where you'll be

This experience takes place at Kingvale Tahoe, a short 5min drive from Boreal Ski Hill on the I-80 pass. We will meet outside the "ticket hut" which is the small building in the entrance of the sled hill. For any friends or family not taking the experience, there is a large sled hill to enjoy while waiting.
