As Bay Area ski resorts are reporting snowfall by the foot instead of inches, we’re excited to announce that…. 

We’re going to Tahoe!

Parent and Child Skiing in South Lake Tahoe

San Francisco’s greenest outdoor travel company introduces a 4-day weekend getaway to Lake Tahoe in biofueled mini-coaches this winter.


Incredible Adventures, mainly known for their small-group day and overnight trips to Yosemite National Park, Muir Woods, Napa, and Sonoma, was thrilled to delve further into California in the summer of 2016. Their range expanded to include both a coastal road-trip-style tour between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and an adventurous trip beyond Yosemite into the Eastern Sierras, including Mammoth Lakes and South Lake Tahoe. Incredible Adventures is excited to build upon their success by offering a winter excursion to Tahoe beginning in 2017.

This Lake Tahoe Winter Adventure itinerary will concentrate on two of California’s winter treasures: South Lake Tahoe, and Truckee, CA. During the tour, guests will have options to visit two renowned snow-sport getaways: Heavenly Mountain and Squaw Valley resorts.

Ice Skating at the Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe, California is a fun outdoor activity for friends and family“This is so much more than a ski trip,” said Incredible Adventure’s general manager, J.D. Boyle. “We built this tour for the people who are looking for a higher quality experience than just a ride to a resort. To have the opportunity to catch that first lift on Friday and to have a really knowledgeable guide talking to our guests about the places they’re seeing, the way only a local can, is something we’re really excited to provide.”

The tour will depart from San Francisco on a Thursday. Passengers will not only beat the traffic into the mountains, but also the crowds on the slopes the following morning. As some of the first mountaineers up the lifts, guests will have the opportunity to spend their whole Friday around Heavenly in South Lake Tahoe. Up early the next day, the group will make their way North towards Squaw Valley and Truckee for another day of quality winter adventures.

Blackjack at the casinos in Lake TahoeFor those less into winter sports, but still seeking a snow-filled retreat, Incredible Adventures’ guides will offer scenic hiking or snowshoe tours of the region, and visits to famous viewpoints like Emerald Bay and Kings Beach. By nightfall, everyone can sip hot cocoa around the fireplace or test their luck in the casinos.

“It’s a great alternative for California’s returning visitors who want to see more, or for locals who don’t want to drive themselves,” said Incredible Adventures’ Director of Sales and Marketing, Jessa Venegas. “This Tahoe trip has something for everyone, and our full-time guides make it an accessible experience for any level of traveler.”
