    Downhill skiers eagerly anticipate the day when the deep white powder arrives. For mountain bikers, we are looking for the brown pow, which happens when a good rain turns dusty trails into compacted, tacky dirt.

  • Tahoe XC Once Highlands Golf Course

    14 September 2021

    Tahoe XC was once the Highlands golf course. If you take a gander while out on the trails skiing or riding your bike, it is certainly easy enough to understand the layout of the nine hole course. Can you imagine it?

  • Thank You Doug McNair

    09 August 2021

    For most of the past 40 years Doug McNair has been grooming the trails and fixing the machines that make Tahoe XC’s (and before that Tahoe Nordic’s) trails such a joy to ski. Now, he finally is getting a chance to take a break, announcing his retirement this past spring. He will, however, remain active on the Board of the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA). Hundreds of times over the last few decades all of us cross-country addicts have happily skied over Doug’s hard work from the night before. Thanks Doug for the amazing corduroy!
