Winter Wildlife Survival Nordic Tour at Chickadee Ridge with TINS
February 13, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Glide 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. Depending on the group, we will travel 3-5 miles on a 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.
What to Expect
TRTA/TINS treks are group treks, and we do our best to keep the group together. All trek leaders dedicate a great deal of their time throughout the year, sharing their passion for the outdoors. They are well-trained and experienced. Please respect the decisions made on the trail.
