Dog Sledding in Tahoe

A sled dog musher and a team of dogs took us for an exciting winter adventure. The ride was for about 2 hours. Since we were low to the ground, we wore the extra layers we brought along for the ski trip. And then covered ourselves with the more blankets. It was a fun experience being pulled on the sled by the huskies along the spectacular Sierra Nevada mountains. The kids got to pet one of the husky puppies and wanted to bring him home.

Our first time Skiing in Tahoe

We tried skiing for the very time in Tahoe. Although I must mention the kids did much better than we did, we pretty much stayed on the bunny slopes. Getting out of those ski lifts gracefully was half the battle! Of all the Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts, I think Boreal Ridge Ski has something special going on. The family-friendly Boreal Ridge Ski Area is one of the smallest resorts at Lake Tahoe, but it’s still special. Boreal is relaxing, comfortable, and has friendly and helpful staff. Apart from a friendly staff, Boreal has a 600-foot super park and great food. We spent more time in the tube park, having snowball fights, making snow angels and riding snowmobiles!
