Tahoe Things to Do: Sledding & Tubing

Sometimes, barreling down a mountain with skis or a snowboard strapped to your feet is just too much of an adrenaline rush. Especially if you have younger – or even older – ones with you, a tamer snow sport can be just the ticket. That’s where the extremely fun things to do in Tahoe of sledding and tubing come in. Lots of places cater to visitors and locals who might not be up for the double black diamond runs. At these places, you can hop on a sled or tube and enjoy a fun-packed swoosh down the hills then be transported back up to do it all again. Many spots for tubing in Lake Tahoe serve multi-purposes depending on the season: golf in the summer and tubing or sledding in the winter. Think about Lake Tahoe sledding and tubing as a true family adventure where you can all stay together and have fun versus being spread out across trails only to meet up at the end of the day. Some of these spots have zones set up where you can take ski lessons, snowshoe on trails or simply play in the snow without having to watch out for people whizzing by. Most Lake Tahoe sledding and tubing businesses also have a lodge or rec area where you can warm up and grab a bite to eat.
