Tahoe Winter Exploration Series: Nordic Tour Among the Trees with TINS
February 2, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
As part of the Tahoe Winter Exploration Series, the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS) and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) have partnered to provide winter excursions on the first Thursday of each month in January, February, and March.
What better way to kick off the series than by celebrating the New Year by gliding through Tahoe’s winter wonderland on skis at a winter excursion hosted by TINS and the TRTA. Spend the morning on cross-country skis sliding, drifting, and floating amid high-elevation pine forests on Tahoe’s North Shore. We will take breaks periodically to learn about Tahoe’s forest ecology while identifying trees and animals that live amongst the Lodgepole Pines. Please bring your own cross-country skis. We will travel 3-5 miles, depending on the group, on groomed trail by Nevada Nordics. We will go as fast as the slowest member of the group and can make adjustments along the way. Our route will not have steep hills. This tour is not for beginners and is appropriate for ages 16 and up.
Difficulty: Moderate (300′ elevation gain)
Distance: ~5 miles round trip
Location: Tahoe Meadows South Trailhead
Time: 9:00 am to ~11:00 am
