Tahoe Things to Do: Snow Mobiling & Tours

Feel the need for snow speed but don’t want to be on your feet? Then hop on a snowmobile in Lake Tahoe! This Tahoe thing to do definitely fits with adrenaline junkies since you can barrel down plenty of trails here, but if you’re more into the touring side, you can join in on Lake Tahoe snowmobile tours. Lots of outfitters offer these tours, and they’re an excellent way to experience the beauty and silence of the backcountry. Imagine an excursion under the full moon! But there’s another reason to go on a guided Lake Tahoe snowmobile tour: safety. Especially if you’re a novice, heading into the backcountry with an experienced guide is a must. These guides know the terrain, know how to navigate elevations safely, know what areas to stay out of and understand the rules of the road, so to speak, about being outside in Tahoe’s winter climate. In fact, several  Lake Tahoe snowmobile tour outfitters even have snow clothing rentals in case you didn’t come dressed for the sport! To operate a snowmobile, you must be at least 16, but, typically, kids as young as 5 can come along for the ride.
