Snowmobiling is a popular sport in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee, and it’s easy to see why. In the Lake Tahoe Basin, 75% of the land is National Forest land, offering seemingly endless zones to explore. Snowmobiling is a thrilling way to experience Tahoe and Truckee’s abundant backcountry, reaching areas that would take hours to access on foot.
