Granlibakken's groomed sled hill offers limitless family fun. Choose from two slopes—green for younger kids and black for teens and adults. The slope is groomed regularly and is controlled by trained staff during busy times. Sledding tickets include sledding saucer rental. A sledding ticket is valid for one 90 minute session. During the season session times are 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm everyday of the week.
Special Night Sledding sessions with music and lighting take place from mid-December to mid-January. Night sledding starts at 5pm and you can purchase a Night Sledding Combo Ticket which will include a drink and/or a snack at a special price. Bring your own gloves, waterproof pants, jacket, snow boots, and sunglasses.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Granlibakken Tahoe's historic ski hill is an affordable place to learn to ski and snowboard, and the place that generations of Tahoe skiers first took their lessons. This tradition of starting at Granlibakken continues for many families before they head to the big, busy mountains.
The ski and snowboard hill at Granlibakken is serviced by two surface lifts that provide a unique opportunity to exit the lift partway up the slope, as opposed to chairlifts, which typically carry skiers and snowboarders all the way to the top of the slope. This is ideal for beginners, as they can progressively move up to higher and steeper slopes as their skills improve.
The beginner “bunny slope” is accessed by a rope tow. The intermediate slope is accessed using a Poma button lift. From the top of the hill, one of the very first cleared for skiing and sledding at Tahoe, you can capture a stunning selfie with the Lake in the background.
Lessons are offered by dedicated and enthusiastic ski and snowboard instructors. Equipment rentals are available in the Ski Hut, for use in lessons, on the hill, at other ski areas, and for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Sledding tickets include sledding saucer rentals. Bring your own waterproof gloves, waterproof pants, jacket, sunglasses and snow boots.
Lifts run 7 days a week during peak season, and then Friday through Monday and on holidays for winter.
