You’ve seen the news…and you know that Lake Tahoe has been inundated with snow this season. That’s a great turn of events not just for skiers and boarders, but for any brand of DogTrekker who enjoys navigating in and around the white stuff. We’ve sniffed out umpteen places where you and your four-legged snow angel will be welcome. Here are a few. more »
Tahoe Cross Country

Yes, it will snow again — and when it does, you and your best friend will find groomed cross-country trails as well as limitless tracts of public lands to glide on. Be sure to check with these centers regarding their status prior to heading out. more »
Horsetail Falls
There’s more to the Tahoe Basin than just the famous lake. Scoot south to the Highway 88/Carson Pass corridor and you’ll encounter a high, rugged world dotted with lakes and laced with trails where a well behaved Bella can accompany you unleashed. more »
Barn in Hope Valley
If you’re not already packed up and headed for the hills, get moving! The first week of October is prime time for fall foliage in the upper elevations of Gold Country, and right now extensive stands of quaking aspen in Hope Valley, Donner Lake and elsewhere in the Lake Tahoe basin are dressed in their autumn best. The Highway 88/Carson Pass corridor, with its string of silvery lakes tucked into a rugged mountain landscape, is a favorite haunt of hikers and photographers, many of whom hang their hats at Sorensen's Resort, where dogs are welcome in the cozy cabins at no extra charge. more »
South of Lake Tahoe, along the Highway 88/Carson Pass corridor, a string of silvery lakes tucked into a rugged mountain landscape beckon DogTrekkers who want to get into the high country one last time before the snow flies. more »

Tahoma Meadows Bed & Breakfast Cottages on Tahoe's West Shore is one of those semi-secret places that has developed a loyal following among outdoorsy couples and families traveling with their four-legged friends. Proprietors Dick and Ulli White found their niche some years ago when they started allowing canines (fee is $15 per night), and their website's pet page is loaded with suggestions on places to go and things to do with Fido.

At the top of their West Shore winter list: Meeks Bay or Blackwood Canyon for entry-level cross-country skiing and snowshoeing; Paige Meadows for intermediates. For directions and more suggestions, ask at the desk for a copy of the booklet "Adventures with your Dog at Lake Tahoe."

Heading south, Sorensen's, an all-season resort 20 miles south of Tahoe on Highway 88, is a cluster of Christmas-card worthy cabins ideally positioned for recreational pursuits in gorgeous Hope Valley. Cross-country skiing is the main attraction, and Rover is welcome to lope alongside as you kick and glide. Eight pet-friendly cabins accommodate canine companions at no extra charge.
