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 on the premises. The rental shop is open daily, all season. The ski hill and ski school are open Friday-Monday throughout the season (last day is April 10)

Granlibakken’s ski and sled 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.

Granlibakken offers plenty of Sierra terrain to explore. Enjoy the trails around Granlibakken’s 74-acre resort or head up to Paige Meadows to experience Tahoe’s backcountry. Guests have easy access to popular cross-country trailheads which provide miles of ungroomed Lake Tahoe skiing and snowshoeing terrain. Equipment rentals are available at our rental shop.  A 1.5-mile trail around the property and an access trail to Paige Meadows is groomed (flat-groomed, without stride-skiing tracks) when the weather and snow conditions permit. Cross-country skiing trail has closed for the 2021-22 season
