South of Incline Village near Spooner Junction, the Spooner Lake Cross Country ski area has 91km of groomed trails with awesome vistas of Lake Tahoe. Try a backcountry trek on the nearby Tahoe Rim Trail.

Spooner Lake Cross Country Ski Area offers fun for people of all ages and ability levels. Whether you want easy to moderate trails, or day long treks into the back country, or even an overnight in a wilderness cabin, Spooner has something for you. Over 80 kilometers of groomed cross country ski trails spread over 9000 acres on Spooner Summit Lake Tahoes East Shore.

The trails around Spooner and Meadow wind through beautiful aspen groves and along scenic creeks. With only moderate changes in elevation, these trails are perfect for all levels of skier. Trails gradually increase in difficulty to the black diamond trails near Marlette Lake, where you are treated to outstanding vistas of Lake Tahoe and Washoe Valley Nevada.

The trails are beautifully groomed and maintained for classic and skating techniques every evening by people who love to ski. Our LMC 1800 is the state of the art snowcat for cross country ski trail preparation.
