Grouse Peak - West Shore Lake Tahoe - Backcountry Skiing
This is an awesome intermediate ski tour with sunny slopes and rewarding views of Lake Tahoe over 3 miles and 1500’ vertical feet of ski touring.
The climb is about 1.5-2.0 miles one-way to the ridgeline, the specific route is always a little different with the skin track.

You could do a quick out and back, multiple laps up and down, or keep going out to Little Alaska or Twin Peaks for a full day tour.
Spring and Winter
No dogs are allowed on the ski area while the lift is running, but if Sherwood Chair is not spinning dogs are generally ok here.
