INCLINE VILLAGE — Join the Tahoe Rim Trail Association for its annual National Winter Trails Day. Participate in a day of winter recreation, presentations, and activities between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Jan. 8. The event will be held near the west end of Tahoe Meadows on the south side of Mt. Rose Highway. To participate, contact Tom at 775-298-0238 or by e-mail at programs@tahoerimtrail.org.

The TRTA will be offering free guided snowshoe hikes throughout the day, providing users with useful information on winter travel as well as dramatic views of Lake Tahoe. Tahoe Mountain Sports will also be on hand to showcase winter recreation gear, from snowshoes to avalanche beacons and probes. A presentation by the American Red Cross on winter safety and preparedness will take place at noon, along with an assortment of other talks on how to make this winter season as enjoyable as possible. For younger winter enthusiasts, there will be an ongoing snowman contest throughout the day, along with snow shelter construction and demonstrations.

Explore Tahoe will also be partnering with TRTA in hosting a guided snowshoe hike from 9 a.m. to noon at the Kingsbury North Trailhead near Heavenly Mountain Resort for residents and visitors of South Lake Tahoe. Post-hike hot beverages and treats will be provided. To participate, call Lauren Tomaselli at Explore Tahoe at 530-542-4637.
