Skiing, Boarding & Sledding

At Granlibakken Tahoe

Sledding at Granlibakken

Open Daily 9AM-4:30PM

Looking to get on the slopes this season? Granlibakken’s sled hill is the perfect place to spend a winter day.

Day tickets to skiing are also valid for sledding, so you can have the best of both worlds! Kids under the age of 3 sled for free.

Rates are $16 per person and includes saucer rental and sledding all day. Holiday rates are $17 per person per day. Lodging guests receive ½ off sledding/skiing tickets at Granlibakken (no tubes or toboggans are allowed). An unlimited sledding pass is $50 per person per season.

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).
