The Lake Tahoe winter season is heating up with back to back snowstorms. What can you do up at "the Lake" if you only have one day? My choice? Rent a sled at Galena Sports on the Mt. Rose Highway and go sledding at the Mt. Rose summit followed by pizza and beer at Mofo's Pizza in Incline Village.
Available only in winter depending on snow, dog sled rides recreate one of the most crucial methods of transportation in snowy countries. Situated in Hope Valley just south of Lake Tahoe, the terrain resembles the Alaskan wilderness. The vigorous huskies are a delight to see. Each sled can carry up to 375 pounds, generally sufficient for a couple of adults and a child or two. It is an unforgettable experience that will make your winter vacation the one everyone talks about. Adult prices: USD85; children USD45. Minimum total for the sled is USD130. Advance reservations and deposit are necessary
