November 5, 2014 - A small snow storm pushed through Tahoe on November 1st leaving a dusting of snow at lake level and up to 12″ on the highest elevations. This means that all the trails below about 7,800 feet in elevation are in awesome shape right now! Once you push up above 8,000′ you’ll start to hit snow, although not very deep.
Email us at info @ mountainbiketahoe.org to let us know what you find out there. This time of year can be dicey once the snow starts to fall. Don’t forget to join us for the Fall Party on Nov. 12 at 6pm at the American Legion in S. Lake Tahoe.
Here’s a few photos from the last couple days:

Also, Here’s some more riding options nearby :
* Genoa, NV - There’s about 12 miles of newly built single along with a new connector trail up to the Rim Trail near the Bench. Only a 25 min drive away from South Lake Tahoe. For a map check out the Carson Valley Trails Association, this volunteer group has done an amazing job getting these trails built, support them! MAP HERE
*Reno, NV – Plenty to ride out by Peavine and at the base of Mount Rose (Whites Creek and Thomas Creek).
*Pinenuts, NV – On the east side of the Carson Valley, there’s a ton of trails for dirt bikes, mtn bikes, and horses, get some gps tracks first or you might get lost. It gets hot and dusty out here in the summer, but time it right in the winter, spring or fall and the riding is really fun.
*Auburn, CA – Perennial Favorite for winter riding, about 2 hours’ drive from Tahoe.
*Sly Park, CA – Just off highway 50 near Placerville, there’s some good loops out here. Only about an hour from South Lake Tahoe
*Downieville, CA - A true classic. More info on the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship page.
