06 Dec The Great Ski Race
925 Country Club Dr
One of the staple winter event in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee area, the Great Ski Race returns (conditions permitting) for its 43rd running on March 1. This point-to-point race, which starts at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area in Tahoe City and ends 30 kilometers later at the Cottonwood Restaurant in Truckee, remains the largest Nordic race west of the Mississippi. Participants support a good cause, too, as the event serves as the main fundraiser for the Tahoe Nordic Search & Rescue Team.
