Cross Country Skiing at Spooner Lake
The east shore region of Lake Tahoe is ideal for beautiful scenic views provided that you are prepared to work your legs climbing the steep trails. The views once you reach the top of these trails are nothing short of breathtaking and you will be glad that you made the effort to reach the top to appreciate them.
One of the finest places to experience cross country skiing whilst at the East shore is without a doubt Spooner Summit. Located just off Highway 50, Spooner summit offers a number of easy trails that are located around the lodge. These smaller and much easier trails serve as a good warm – up exercise for the much steeper trails that lie ahead. Many skiers had to Spooner summit with a single goal in mind, to climb the long winding trails that lead up the North Canyon. The trail is quite a challenge and seems to be a never-ending climb to the top, but once you reach the top you will be rewarded with the absolute finest views of Lake Tahoe that can’t be experienced from anywhere else. The trails at Spooner summit cover over 80 kilometers and are ideal for both classic and skate skiing.
