Overview

The area's oldest ski resort is a perfect choice for families with children and beginners looking to learn in a low-pressure, intimate setting. With 1/2 off rates for people lodging at Granlibakken Tahoe and on-site rentals, the Granlibakken Ski and Sled Area is an affordable and convenient option for families and beginners. Our sled hill is also fun for all ages! With a complimentary saucer rental included in each day pass, and a warming hut serving authentic Mexican food at the base, the sled hill is the perfect place to spend a day!
