Snowshoe Thompson was a local legend, skiing over the mountains to deliver mail between Placerville, California, and Genoa, Nevada, in the mid-1800s. He never had the chance to experience the winter from atop a snowmobile, but you can, and at not one but three different circle tracks on the South Shore. On the California side, you can choose from the track in Meyers at the Tahoe Paradise Golf Course or the track at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course. In Nevada the track is located just across Lake Parkway from the Mont Bleu Casino. And if you've got youngsters in the group, the Nevada track is the place to go, with a kiddie track for ages 6 to 12.
