Nevada Nordic

  • Mt. Rose Highway, Reno, NV 89704


At Nevada Nordic, we want to transform North Lake Tahoe into a sports destination with something for everyone. Our mission is to promote the establishment of a community-supported, cross-country ski and multi-use venue(s) in Nevada’s North Lake Tahoe Area.

Nevada Nordic is located off the Mt Rose Highway. For current conditions see our Grooming Update. The grooming is community supported by your generous donations!

Our trails are open to all uses- skate skiing, classic skiing, snowshoeing, and fat biking. We can all work together to make sure the trails stay usable for all by following the winter trail etiquette:

❄️ snowshoe off to the side of the groomed trails (the snow shoe tracks make the trails very hard to ski on)
❄️ skate in the middle
❄️ stride in the tracks

Thank you for working together to make sure our groomed trails stay pristine!

We ask for skier etiquette on the Old Mt Rose Highway section, which is owned by the Nevada Department of Transportation. Try to keep your dog from “post-holing” the track and please remove any droppings. We have a dog waste bag stand in the upper meadow section for those skiers who forget to bring bags. Please help us by packing out the waste.

Once you leave the Old Mt Rose Highway section for any of the loops, US Forest Service policy takes over. From their website, the following prevails:

The Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit (LTBMU) manages about 78% of the land within the Lake Tahoe Basin, so if you want to take your dog hiking, camping, or snowshoeing, chances are you will end up on National Forest System lands.

Your well-behaved, leashed dog is welcome almost anywhere within the LTBMU, with the notable exceptions of designated swimming beaches and areas that are restricted for wildlife protection. You must keep your dog on a leash, and pick up after him.
