Skiing, Boarding & Sledding
At Granlibakken Tahoe
Sledding at Granlibakken
Looking to get on the slopes this season? Granlibakken’s sled hill is the perfect place to spend a winter day. With day passes and sled rentals starting at just $14 per person per day, sledding is an affordable and fun way to get on the slopes this winter. Cruise down our sled hill on a colorful saucer, and enjoy s’mores at our firepit or a delicious burrito at the base of the sled hill at our snack bar and fire pit. Our family-friendly atmosphere and safe environment will ensure that you will create lasting memories with your friends and family. Day tickets to skiing are also valid for sledding, so you can have the best of both worlds! Kids under the age of 4 sled for free.
Rates are $14 per person and includes saucer rental and sledding all day. Holiday rates are $15 per person. Lodging guests receive ½ off sledding/skiing tickets at Granlibakken (no tubes or toboggans are allowed).
Granlibakken recommends and provides plastic saucers. Parents who choose to sled down with their children are recommended to have each person on their own saucer and to link the child to the parent with the adult’s legs.
Customers may bring their own saucers or sleds. We do not recommend the straight sleds because they turn and appear to cause accidents. Analysis of past accidents shows that straight sleds are common contributors to injuries.
For safety and insurance purposes, Granlibakken does not allow toboggans, sliding devices with metal or wood (metal and wood cause injuries on collision), or inflatable sliding devices (too fast).
Granlibakken Ski and Snowboard Hill
You can ski or ride right out your back door at Granlibakken Resort. Our intimate ski hill is perfect for beginner through intermediate skiers and snowboarders, with rental shop, ski school and warming hut on the premises. Rental shop, and warming hut are open daily, all season. The ski hill and ski school are open Friday-Monday throughout the season; and daily during the winter season. Check our event calendar for opening days. It's a great place to avoid the crowds and bring the family.
