What You Can Expect

Cross-Country Ski Rental in Lake Tahoe

Cross-Country Skiing

Select from two rental locations, both conveniently situated near Lake Tahoe ski resorts. At each, trained staff will help ensure a proper fit for your bindings and boots, and can advise on the best trails for your skill level. If you’d prefer to leave the bulky gear at home, you can rent winter clothing and purchase cold-weather accessories when picking up your rentals. By pre-booking, you can make sure there is a pair of skis with your name on it, even on clear brisk days when cross-country rentals fly off the shelves. After being fitted and receiving the skis and poles, pick up a pamphlet of the surrounding area and get ready to explore.

The Kirkland Resort offers 50 miles (80 kilometers) of groomed trails, located just ¼-mile (.4 kilometers) east of Kirkwood’s alpine ski and snowboard runs. The diverse terrain affords plenty of opportunity for excellent skiing for all abilities, and the open meadow reveals striking views of the surrounding mountains. If you catch a chill from your time frolicking in the varied landscape, the meadow section of the trail has a warming hut for cold days.

If you prefer lake views to wide open space, head to Heavenly’s Adventure Peak, accessed by a relaxing gondola ride. The three miles (five kilometers) of cross-country trails frequently cut into wooded areas and open to views of the clear blue waters of Lake Tahoe 3,000-feet (914-meters) below. You may spy a few snowshoers while gliding your way through backcountry, however Heavenly offers separate trails for cross-country skiers, with tracks for both diagonal stride and skating.

Once you’ve had your fill of exploring the groomed tracks and backcountry wilderness of Lake Tahoe’s less traveled trails, you can return your equipment to your rental point.
