    Tahoe Trails and Shuttles Status

    South Tahoe is melting out fast, lots of lower trails are opening and the Tahoe Mountain network is riding nicely. OTE will close down for some construction projects and reopen May 6th We are planning on starting our shuttle service on May 12th. We also got a beer tap going into our coffee bar!

    Check our Trail Conditions page for trail and shuttle status, or better yet, just give us a call, we are here to help! 530-600-3633

    Beer on tap! Like Bend! Closing for construction? Can't wait to see the changes! I'll try to return to San Jose from Moab through Tahoe after you open.

    The most mileage will be the network on Tahoe Mountain, which is great with tons of killer views of the Tahoe Basin.
    Otherwise pretty much everything else from the bottom up (lake level) will be rideabale to the point where you will hit snow or a down trees. So Kingsbury Stinger, Van Sickle, Cold Creek, Raliroad/Corral/Cedar, etc.. Every day is going to be a bit further up. By May 3rd I wouldnt be surprised if you got most the way up those trails, its thin.
    The Tahoe Rim Trail wont be accessible quite yet.

    Yup the continual warm spells have been successfully melting stuff off. Road part of the Kings to Ash Canyon connector (about 7k') on the Nevada side figuring that I would hit snow at the higher parts but you could see that the snow line has moved up to around 7500'. Like OTE said, dirt is starting to poke through in lots of areas, thinking I may go hit up cold creek and angora in the near future here just to get a feel for things. Hoping to dog that we don't have a repeat of last year with the Carson City Off-road (no EZ-bake oven trail).

    Cold Creek mostly clear to the top, few snow patches up high just before the meadow. Tahoe Mt network clear, Corral clear (road is still ice), most of Van sickle and Stinger from bottom up... it's happening fast!
    Over The Edge will be briefly closing until May 6th then we're open full swing and shuttle options starting the 12th.
