Tahoe High Altitude Training Center

at Granlibakken Tahoe

Whether you are a weekend warrior or a serious competitor, Lake Tahoe’s Granlibakken Conference Center and Resort offers the perfect place to train for an upcoming event, or to create your own high intensity work out for a few days with our High Altitude Training Center.


Granlibakken provides a made-to-order breakfast and can accommodate special dietary requests. The buffet is healthy with hearty choices and a varied selection each day, including fresh fruit, gluten-free oatmeal, and other tasty and healthy food.


Granlibakken has access to the Tahoe Rim Trail from our 74 acre California retreat for people wishing to hike or mountain bike to build their high altitude stamina. Depending upon your pleasure, bike trails run from Granlibakken north to Truckee or South to Sugar Pine Point State Park. There are many mountain biking trails in the area and road bikers can take the 72 mile ride around Lake Tahoe or the more Challenging “Death Ride” into Alpine County. Everything you need for high altitude training!


Triathlon training? Lake Tahoe is a mile from Granlibakken. Lap swimming is available in the Granlibakken pool open daily from 10 to 10, early morning swim times can be arranged in advance. Donner Lake is a good spot for bikers to ride up old highway 40 and then back to the Donner for a long distance swim (Donner Lake is a little warmer than Lake Tahoe). The Donner Ride is a steep and challenging ride. You can warm up with a 15 mile ride from Granlibakken to Donner Lake.
