You've had an amazing time skiing or riding at Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows but how about those days when everyone's legs are bit tired, and the kiddos want to try something else for the day? No need to fret: the towns surrounding Lake Tahoe are filled with unique adventures the entire family will enjoy! Whether they’re acting like snow angels or throwing snowballs, kids will go crazy for these activities!
Family Adventure Excursions
Tahoe Adventure Company hosts snowshoe tours for the entire family. Book a Full Moon Snowshoe Tour where space lovers alike will enjoy talking about astronomy with their knowledgeable guide as they trek in the moon light. These tours are great for all ability levels and Full Moon hikes are available when the snow is low.
Explore the galaxy together and reach for the stars with a Snowshoe Star Tour. It begins with guided snowshoeing at sunset and leads you to a viewing platform with an award winning astronomer and a telescope waiting for you. This tour is great for kids, teens and adults!
Kid Zone Fun
Slide down the snow on a snowtube or go disco tubing in colourful LED lights on Saturday nights. Strap on a helmet at the SnoVentures Activity Zone in Squaw Valley where kids ride mini snowmobiles specifically designed for them on a groomed, oval loop! Parents can enjoy a glass of wine at the SnoVentures Lodge while watching their kids from the viewing area.
Ice skating comes alive in December at Northstar where kids can watch holiday movies while ice skating and after roast marshmellows over a firepit with the entire family!
Cozy Up Inside
When the kids aren’t looking, heat up with a Himalayan hot stone massage at The Sanctuary in Kings Beach. Stretch out in a yoga class or take an art class with the kids at North Tahoe Arts in Tahoe City. Make candles and soap together at The Villager Candle Shop in Truckee and take your handmade presents with you after a great day with the family.
