Cross Country Skiing

Spooner Lake

Thanks to recent winter storms, Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park - Spooner Lake has the snowpack needed to groom cross-country ski trails. The 5 km system of meandering trails wind through dense forest, across an open meadow and along the banks of Spooner Lake. The trail system is made possible by a partnership between Nevada State Parks and Nevada Nordic, a non-profit group based in the Tahoe Basin.

The scenic, intermediate trail includes varied flat and rolling terrain, which makes it great for both families and experienced skiers. For updated trail conditions, visit nevadanordic.org

When using the trails, please be mindful of trail etiquette:

  • • Do not walk on the trail in shoes or boots.
  • • Dogs should be on a leash of not more than 6 feet in length and off to the side of the groomed trails.
  • • Snowshoers are welcome but should stay to the far edge of the trail and be careful not to mar the center of the trail for skate skiing, or the tracks set for classic skiing. 

All access to cross-country ski trails are open to the public at no additional charge. There is an entrance fee into the park of $10 per vehicle. Spooner Lake is located near the intersection of Hwy 50 and 28.
