It’s the biggest Nordic swap in North Lake Tahoe where you’ll find skate skis, touring skis, backcountry and telemark gear, boots, poles, snowshoes, kid’s sleds, winter clothing, and more. Winter is on!
It’s also a major fundraiser for the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association based in Tahoe City. The Annual Cross Country Ski Swap takes place Saturday, November 14th starting at 10 AM.
To help you select equipment that fits, volunteers and equipment representatives will be on hand. Raffle tickets will be on sale to win a season pass, with proceeds going to support our Ski Education Association. For more information, visit TahoeXC.org
The 65 kilometer trail system at Tahoe Cross Country is machine groomed daily. Nineteen separate trails lead skiers and snowshoers through beautiful Ponderosa Pine and White Fir forest, into open meadows, and up to stunning views of Lake Tahoe and its surrounding peaks. Two trailside warming huts provide ideal locations for getting out of the weather, enjoying a break and a free hot chocolate or tea. Eight kilometers of dog friendly trails allow families to include the entire family during their visit to the snow for healthy outdoor recreation.
Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association provides school children in the community with a unique opportunity to not only learn and participate in a sport that will provide lifelong enjoyment and health benefits but also can provide motivated individuals with a foundation for world class competitive training. Many young athletes from the area move on to competition at the national and international level in Nordic skiing. TCCSEA supports its local Nordic ski team from North Tahoe Middle and High Schools by providing free trail access, coaching support and ski equipment.
