Lake Tahoe’s north shore offers slew of snow fun

Recent record snowstorms have cleared to blue skies and left incomparable conditions for skiers and riders. It’s nothing but mostly sunny skies forecast for the week ahead. Conditions are “exceptional” with top-to-bottom groomers and packed powder and spring-like conditions in the afternoon.

Tahoe Cross Country, with 62 kilometers of trails, is offering free skate skiing lessons from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesdays. A trail pass is required.

Northstar-at-Tahoe’s first full-moon snowshoe and Nordic tour is 5 p.m. today. The two-hour tour includes bonfire, hot chocolate and s’mores. The resort will also celebrate the Chinese New Year this Saturday with lion dancers, martial arts demonstrations, rice cake-eating contests and more from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

First-time skiers and snowboarders can hit the slopes at Diamond Peak’s Learn to Ski and Ride Weekend January 22-23, when a lift, lesson and rental package will be available for $20.
