The Sierra Nevada is millions of years old and offers acres upon acres of unexplored beauty. The guides of Lake Tahoe Snowmobile Tours have only been in business since 1984, but they're doing their best to catch up. Every winter, they initiate newcomers into the area's austere beauty by leading adventures in and around the powdered landscapes of Lake Tahoe. On tours, groups of all ages wind through national forests on both groomed and fluffy powder trails, zooming through the mountains, across snowy meadows, and up to summits as high as 9,000 feet that overlook the lake. Along the ride, scheduled stops let riders explore the scenery, take photos, and leave their mark on the land forever by making a snow angel.

On each trip, the crew captains the 36-foot mahogany Wild Goose II, which harkens back to the early 20th century when wooden boats were the main vessels on the scenic lake. The ship carries up to 12 passengers at a time, assuring that tours don't become overcrowded or that a baseball game could break out. While sailing, deck seating puts guest in the breeze under the sun or stars, or inside in the heated cabin. With many available cruises, such as the West Shore Dinner Cruise and the Sunset Cocktail Cruise along the Incline shoreline, Grand Tahoe Charters aims to entertain guests while showing them the many facets of Tahoe's natural splendor.
