Dog Friendly Trails

Ski with your dog As you turn the corner towards Tahoe XC, you hear shuffling in the back of the car. A faint whine, a wagging tail. Your dog knows it's time to hit the trails!

Bring the family dog! Blue, Special Green and Dogonit Trails are all dog-friendly. The dog trails are open midweek plus Sundays from 8:30am to 5:00pm, and Saturdays and holidays from 8:30am-9:45am and 3pm to 5pm.
