What You Can Expect
Other gear is also available for rent (jackets, pants and helmets) or purchase (gloves, hats and goggles) if you left anything at home. When you’re suited up, head out on your own exploration, either in the backcountry or on dedicated cross-country terrain. Perhaps visit Kirkland Resort, near Kirkwood ski resort, where 50 miles (80 km) of groomed trails offer something for all levels of ability. Traverse the open meadow to admire views of the mountains, or head up a hill to burn more calories. If you get cold, hit the warming hut for a break.
If you’d rather be closer to Lake Tahoe itself, you can visit Heavenly’s Adventure Peak, which is reached by the Heavenly gondola (own expense). Explore its 3 miles (5 km) of cross-country trails that take you in and out of the trees and provide views of the lake 3,000 feet (914 meters) below you. Heavenly’s cross-country trails are separate from snowshoeing trails, so you can ski freely on tracks for both diagonal stride and skating.
At the end of your rental period (one, two or three days), just return your equipment to the rental shop.
