Cross Country Skiing at South Lake Tahoe

27th February, 2017

Cross-country skiing provides everything an outdoor adventurer seeks.

Just a 30-minute drive from Hotel Azure is the beautifully serene meadows and hills of Hope Valley, the perfect location for your cross country skiing or snow-shoeing adventure in South Lake Tahoe. From a tranquil journey through snow covered hill to a more intense adrenaline filled race against your best buddy Hope Valley is your ideal Azure get away.

When you get to Hope Valley you will see the Hope Valley Outdoor yurt, where you can rent skis and snowshoes, take a quick lesson or go on a tour around the pristine Sierra Nevada Mountains of Hope Valley and Tahoe. They have over 60 miles of marked trails surrounded by 7 peaks and plenty gorgeous views throughout. The facilities are completely off the grid so they actively promote sustainability and “leave no trace” recreational opportunities. 

Camp Richardson and Fallen Leaf Lake is another area in Lake Tahoe that is great for cross-country skiing and is only 5 minutes from Hotel Azure.  It’s a more active area and is wonderful for the whole family to experience the allure of Lake Tahoe. 


At Hotel Azure you’re just moments away from experiencing either of these scenic cross-country skiing trails. Please contact our friendly Guest Services Team at 1.800.877.1466 or [email protected]
