Guided Snowshoe Tours at Clair Tappaan Lodge – Beginning on Saturday, Jan. 5th, we will be offering a Guided Snowshoe Tour on every Saturday morning during the winter season.  We will leave from Clair Tappaan Lodge at 10:00AM sharp and explore Tahoe National Forest.
Bring your own snowshoes or rent a pair from us at 9:00AM (in our rental shop). The snowshoe tour will begin at 10:00 AM sharp and last about 2-3 hours. Plan on bringing your own snacks and dress comfortably (in layers). Hot chocolate and tea will be available before and after the hike.
The Guided Tour will cost $10 per person for lodge over-night guests. If you are not a guest at the lodge, the price will be $20 per person.
