Royal Gorge


Royal Gorge is North America's largest Cross Country ski resort. Located in the magnificent Northern Sierra Nevada mountain range above Lake Tahoe its 308 km of immaculately groomed track offers everything from pristine meadows to sweeping vistas. 92 trails (28 beginner, 44 intermediate and 16 advanced) feature everything from gentle rolling terrain to steep hills. Four surface lifts help skiers negotiate the steeper inclines and allow them to practice their downhill techniques, while eight warming huts and four trailside cafes keep them refreshed and ready for more. Royal Gorge is located right off I-80 at the Soda Springs exit.
