Strap into snowshoes to join a guided tour on February 4 as part of the Nighttime Guided Snowshoe hosted by the Sierra State Parks Foundation. The Nighttime Guided Snowshoe Tours will be led by State Park Interpreters, who will share the natural and cultural history around the Hellman-Ehrman estate and Lake Tahoe shoreline at Sugar Pine Point State Park.

This beginner-friendly and family-friendly event is approximately 1.5 hours in duration and costs $45 per adult, while children 12 years and under can participate for $25. The cost includes snowshoe rentals, park entrance, guided hike and lots of memorable fun! Be sure to bring your headlamps and see the park in new light. The event begins promptly at 5:30PM, but if you're a beginner you can attend the beginner clinic at 5PM to ease into the snowshoe trek with new skills!

Pack plenty of snacks and water, and be sure to check the forecast and trail conditions and make sure to wear the right gear. Pro tip: bring an extra pair of dry socks to slip on after the snowshoe, and something hot to drink on the way home! It should be an exhiliartingly cold, but fun, winter event!

Buy your ticket today before the event sells out! If you're unable to make the February 4 event, you can reserve your spot for the other Nighttime Guided Snowshoe Tours scheduled for March 10th and April 14th at 5PM!

The Sierra State Parks Foundation supports education, interpretation, restoration, and preservation of your Lake Tahoe-Donner California State Parks. The Sierra State Parks Foundation began in 1968 as the “Lake Tahoe State Parks Advisory Committee.” Although the association went through a few name changes, by 1988 it became the Sierra State Parks Foundation, or SSPF, and has remained so ever since.
