Where to Go Sledding at Lake Tahoe

The Meadows

Pack a picnic and pack up the family and snow toys and head up Mt. Rose Highway 431 for a full day of fun.  It’s about a six-minute drive to the top of the highway with plenty of room for all. We like to go early as this is a hot spot for sledding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in the High Sierra. 

Spooner Lake State Park

This is a short 15 – 20-minute drive along the East Shore from Incline Village and one of the most peaceful places to play in the snow.  It’s part of the Lake Tahoe State Park system, which means the facilities are plentiful and the area is well maintained.  The Park features over 50 miles of hiking, equestrian and mountain biking terrain (great for snow biking!).   

Tahoe City Winter Sports Park

The Tahoe City Winter Sports Park offers cross-country skiing, an ice-skating rink, snowshoeing, sledding and a small sled hill for young children, a restaurant and bar. They also have ski rentals and snowshoe rentals along with a walking route. Tahoe City Sports Park is a dog-friendly course, so no need to leave your pup at home. As an added community benefit, the trails are groomed seven days per week.  

North Tahoe Regional Park

Here’s another option that is a short drive from Incline Village.  Head west to Tahoe Vista for an action-packed place to play in the snow. There are a variety of options for all ages that include a sledding hill (concession), a snowmobile course, and snowshoe and cross-country skiing terrain.


Located on Lake Tahoe’s West Shore, this super family-friendly resort has everything you need for a full day of fun.  The sled hill is one of the very few sled hills that is professionally groomed and managed to ensure a safe day on the snow for all.  For those who’d rather try a lesson in snowboarding or skiing, there’s a friendly beginner hill at the resort and lessons are available as well.
