Why We Love This Tour

“This is, in my opinion, one of the best tours we run. I got to see and do so much in Tahoe when I went – there’s options to ski, but I just opted to check out the snowy scenery. It was absolutely stunning!”

Get a jump start on the weekend warriors and leave the winter driving to us! You choose your adventure on this flexible, small group winter escape from the city. You’ll have the chance to ski multiple days at one of the largest snow sport resorts in all of California: Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Not into skiing or snowboarding? No worries! Our guides know how to serve up flexibility by the mountain-load! We can take you on scenic tours of the region and visit famous viewpoints like Emerald Bay and Kings Beach, or offer other winter activities like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling.

There’s also the opportunity to hit the casinos and roll the dice in South Tahoe if you’re feeling lucky!

Itinerary

SAMPLE ITINERARY – DAY 1 (FRIDAY)

SAN FRANCISCO TO SOUTH LAKE TAHOE/HEAVENLY MOUNTAIN RESORT

1:00pm: Pick up from San Francisco Hilton Hotel (Mason Street entrance)

Afternoon: Buckle up! After departing San Francisco, you’ll head through California’s capital city, Sacramento, through the Sierra foothills and into the famous Gold Rush Country, cresting a high mountain pass within the Sierra Nevada. Then we’ll wind our way through large pine forests, before dramatically descending into South Lake Tahoe.

Evening: In the evening, we’ll settle into our centrally located hotel and then head out to happy hour with the Apres Ski crowd at the base of Heavenly Mountain Resort before a comfy night’s rest.

SAMPLE ITINERARY – DAY 2 (SATURDAY)

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE: CHOOSE YOUR ADVENTURE

While masses of people are piling into their cars to head to the mountains for the day, you’ll be on the first lift up to carve the groomers, or to get fresh tracks in that Heavenly powder! Don’t worry if you’re not really into skiing, our guides will offer the opportunity to go out on a fabulously scenic drive on the mountain roads surrounding Lake Tahoe, or maybe even a snowshoe adventure! If you’re really just here for the casinos, they’re open 24 hours, and you’re welcome to see if Lady Luck is on your side all day! Don’t want to miss out on any of it? No problem, we’re flexible: our guides know their stuff, and we’ll help you fit in a scenic drive in the morning, get yourself a half day ticket on the mountain, and then hit the casinos all night long!

SAMPLE ITINERARY – DAY 3 (SUNDAY)

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE TO SAN FRANCISCO

Hit the slopes in the morning for skiing or more sightseeing around South Lake Tahoe. Around 2:30 PM, we will be headed back down the pass toward the city by the bay. Sit back and relax or take a nap while we drive you back through the beautiful foothills of California. We’ll make a final stop in an old Gold Rush town, as well as driving through the state capital, Sacramento. After crossing the iconic Bay Bridge, you will be dropped off in San Francisco around 9:00 PM for some much-needed rest before heading back out to catch some more of your favorite sights around the city!

 

 

**Sample Itineraries: Please note that due to rapidly-changing conditions beyond our control (weather, crowds, traffic) and the small size of our vehicles/groups, our guides have the flexibility to adjust your itinerary to best suit the group’s needs. While we guarantee we’ll do our best to provide you with all of the highlights within this Lake Tahoe Winter Adventure Tour itinerary (conditions permitting), we don’t guarantee them in this specific order. **

Amazing Adventure in the Tahoe Snow

“We just spent the most enjoyable 3 days at Tahoe! Everything was exactly as we wanted. The van was very comfortable and the bonus… it ran on bio-fuel! The trip out was very scenic and every effort was made to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The hotel was warm and cozy. The other passengers were fun and great company. The best part was our guide Rourke, he was the perfect guide and host. He was very easy going and accommodated our every whim. We opted for sight seeing around the Lake as none of us were skiers and we just wanted to take great pictures of the beautiful area. Rourke made suggestions and in consultation we agreed on the days schedule. OMG! What amazing sights! We went hiking to the best view points, we went sledding, we learnt a lot about the area and the history. Not only was Rourke the best guide he was also great company. We loved everything about this tour and would highly recommend Incredible Adventures.”
