What a wonderful way for you and your pet to spend an afternoon, cross-country skiing through beautiful meadows and woods. Wherever you choose to go, be sure to clean up after your pooch and take it out with you. Also, when skiing, keep your dog close and under voice control.

Tahoe XC
925 Country Club Drive
Tahoe City, CA 96145
Located 2 1/2 miles east of Tahoe City, Tahoe XC welcomes you and your pooch on two dog-friendly trails comprising 8 km of beginner to intermediate terrain, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), 8:30 to 5 p.m., and on holidays and weekends, 2 to 5 p.m. Your pup will need to purchase a day pass for $4 (or you can buy a season pass for $49). A leash is required at the trailhead and in the parking lot. Dogs are not allowed in the day lodge.

Part of the California State Park system, these parks offer cross-country skiing opportunities for you and your pet. However, many of them also allow snowmobiling, so keep that in mind when skiing with your pet.
