Free snowshoeing, cross-country skiing at Incline Village golf course

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. - Lake Tahoe residents and visitors can still enjoy Incline Village's famed golf offerings - even in the middle of winter - thanks to the Championship Course's newly improved, 1.2-mile snowshoe and cross country course.

Access to the trail is free, as is parking for all participants, making for a great day of outdoor fun for families, couples and friends.

Located in the heart of Incline Village on Lake Tahoe's north shore, the Championship Course snowshoe and cross country course is open through the end of the ski season.

Skiers and shoers may park in the lot reserved for guests of the course's event venue, the Chateau, and begin the marked trail on what is typically the #10 tee box, directly behind the Chateau. The 1.2-mile trek proceeds down the No. 10 fairway onto holes 11 and 12, before cutting over to 18 and back to the Chateau.

Acclaimed as excellent sources of both cardiovascular and strength training, cross country skiing and snowshoeing are great ways to get out of the house this winter while getting a good workout in. The Championship trail is classified as an easy journey and snow conditions may vary depending on weather conditions.

After the snow melts, the Championship Course tempts golfers with 18 holes of award-winning golf in a picturesque setting. The Championship Course is a challenging 7,100-yard, Robert Trent Jones Sr. design featuring tightly-cut fairways that was named among the top-10 best golf courses in the state by both Golfweek and Golf Digest in 2012.

The Incline Village Championship Course is located on Fairway Boulevard off of Country Club Drive in Incline Village, Nev. For more information, visit www.GolfIncline.com or call 775-832-1100.
