Ski and Snowboard Hill

snowboarding at granlibakken

You can ski or ride right out your back door at Granlibakken Tahoe. Our modestly-sized ski hill is perfect for beginner through intermediate skiers and snowboarders, with a rental shop and ski school at the base of the hill. The rental shop is open daily, all season. The ski hill and ski school are open Friday-Monday throughout the season.

Granlibakken’s ski and snowboard hill is accessible via two surface lifts. The beginner “bunny slope” is accessed by a rope tow. The intermediate slope is accessed using a Poma button lift. Surface lifts provide a unique opportunity to exit the lift partway up the slope, as apposed to chairlifts, which typically carry skiers and snowboarders all the way to the top of the slope. This is ideal for beginners since they will be able to progressively move up to higher and steeper slopes as their skills improve.

January is National Safety Month

Have fun and a safer time on the slopes! Learn more from the National Ski Areas Association’s Discover Snow program.
