The 2nd Annual Great Gravel Grind - Lake Tahoe

The information below is from our 1st Annual Great Gravel Grind Lake Tahoe. Stay tuned for updates. 2nd Annual GGG date is set for August 4th, 2024

This cool, new event will start and finish at Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Area (Tahoe XC) in Tahoe City, CA. Participants can choose a 15 mile (1 lap) or 30 mile (2 laps) course. Riders will see stunning views of Lake Tahoe and pedal rolling terrain throughout. This ride is sure to please your senses and challenge your legs and heart. With 1 aid station on the course, a fantastic after party, and a raffle with great prizes, you will be well taken care of. While the ride is untimed, if you use Strava, we will have 3 Strava sections to test yourself: an Uphill, a Downhill, and a Rolling section. Your registration donation includes; the ride, cheerleaders and an aid station on course, 10 raffle tickets (you can purchase more), great food from MogRog Catering, and refreshing beverages at the end. All proceeds benefit our Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education Association’s Junior Cross-Country Ski Teams.

Bike Specifics: This course would be best tackled with a gravel bike with 40c + tires, or a hardtail mountain bike. Pedal assist bikes are not allowed.

Course Description: The course departs from the trailhead at Tahoe XC and heads Northwest. Folding in on itself several times, the route meanders through rolling terrain, beautiful meadows, and forested hills. There are a couple of challenging, yet short uphills and a mix of pavement, double track, and a fair amount of single track throughout the course that’ll keep the psych level high. Each lap is almost exactly 15 miles in length, and riders will occasionally catch great views of Lake Tahoe.

Date: August 4th 2024
Distance: 15 miles (1 lap) or 30 miles (2laps)

Lodge Clean Up & Trail Work Day

Tahoe XC needs your help. Our annual Lodge Clean Up and Trail Work Day has turned into a real community gathering and social event over the years. We will work on making the Lodge spiffy for the ski season ahead by cleaning the Fireplace Room, organizing trail signs, chop and stack wood, rake pine needles/pine cones and gather all broken limbs, put out street parking signs and more. We will also have 2 working groups out on the trails. This trail work day will benefit all lodge and trail users- hikers, bikers, runners, walkers and cross-country skiers, and exercise both your body and your heart as it’s a call to volunteer and give back to your community. Open to all ability levels and ages, we encourage you to bring your own work gloves, long pants, sturdy shoes, sunshirt and sun hat and get ready for some good ole fashion hands-on, hard work and community camaraderie.

If you’re looking to fulfill community service hours, be part of something great, and teach your group or family the benefits of helping and serving your community, this is the time and place. Please email to sign-up.

Date: October 14
Time: 9:00am -1:00pm, w/ Tasty Bites and Beverages to follow

Women's Specific Fall Conditioning

Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA) and Coach Quinn Lehmkuhl would like to introduce the second year of the women’s fall Dryland Program. This program is specifically for women who share a love for the outdoors and who have a desire to improve their fitness. Participants will hone their endurance, strength, and flexibility so they will be ready for a great ski season when the snowflakes begin to accumulate. This program will consist of a 5 week training group from mid October-mid November.

While this Program is geared toward cross-country ski fitness; women from all sports backgrounds are welcome. This program is perfect for motivated, fitness-driven women who want to get outside with a great group of like-minded women and have fun in the mountains.

Participants are asked to have an intermediate level of fitness and have a basic knowledge of cross-country skiing techniques. The dryland sessions will consist of running, bounding/ski walking, on-foot ski specific drills, plyometrics, and ski specific strength. These exercises, combined with endurance, will help lead to a smooth transition onto skis come the winter. Please wear running shoes and atheltic clothes. Space is limited to 12 participants. Registration begins September 1st.

Date: Tuesdays & Thursdays: October 17-November 14
