cross country skiing
Lake Tahoe Winter Trails Eagle Creek Canyon is a popular year-round destination for outdoor adventurers and offers access to the Desolation Wilderness. In the winter, it is a popular snowshoe and skiing destination, as well as one of the few good ice climbing crags. The frozen Eagle Creek, spectacular cliffs in the canyon, views of Lake Tahoe, and presence of ice climbers make this a fun, interesting, and beautiful winter destination. Be sure to pickup a free (and required) trail wilderness permit at the trailhead.
