Best Places to Snowmobile - Tahoe & Lake Tahoe


The two mountain ranges that Wyoming so desperately needs are the famous rough and tumble Sun Valley and the ultra-snowy High Sierras. Located in the heart of sunny Nevada, the Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe Basin are perfect for both wintering and skiing. Packing a shovel and a pair of snowshoes is usually the only thing you need to do to make sure that your favorite pastime stays alive in the winter months.

Tahoe is by far the biggest snow mobile in the state, and like Lake Tahoe, is used by hundreds of thousands of people every year. Annually, over 8 million people travel 3.6 million miles on the lakes and the snowmobile trails that lace the Sierra Nevada.

While Lake Tahoe may be the largest snowmobiling destination in the world, there are several other great places to photograph the wintry wonderland.

incoln City, Nevada is the flat basin where the Missouri River flows into Lake Tahoe. The T-Bar Reservoir, which holds water for California, Nevada, and Arizona, is a popular scene. Without question, some of the most beautiful scenery in the world can be found in Lincoln. The city itself is a picturesque place, but do not think that it is completely free from amenities. A water park with a canopy and a ski pipe can be found in the suburbs, and several quiet lakes are scattered in Lincoln. If you are looking for solitude among the mountains, not far from Tahoe, is Emerald Lake in Pigeon Lake County. This beautiful place is surrounded by the Burmese and Thai climbing mountains.

As states go, Nevada has one of the best climates in the country. In the winter, average temperatures range from 60 to 80 degrees. Average annual precipitation is 70 inches, and the average annual snowfall is April to June. There are many hotter months, and they are often associated with regular and even twice-a-year snowfalls.

North Dakota has the coldest temperatures in the country. In the winter, average temperatures are around -25 degrees and few people even make it to 40 degrees. Annual precipitation is among lowest in the country at around 11 inches per year. Annual temperatures above 60 degrees are very rare.

You can find great guides to planning a trip to North Dakota on the Internet. The state of North Dakota is full of natural wonders and wildlife. As a nature lover, I have had the privilege of vacationing in North Dakota several times. The last two vacations were spent in a cabin built on a resort lake not far from a hotel in theeline Village. I spent each vacation outside but withinensation, and I could still hear the water where I sat on the bank of the lake! I never felt so close to nature as I did in North Dakota.

Besides the majestic beauty of North Dakota, its Western-heastern dual geography is also home to a half-dozen well-known banks.

The area around the Beaver Dome located west of the Tower includes the Harney Peak and the cliffs of Mount Lay, Black Hills, and Sh accent Mountains. You can almost hear the noise of the wind as it goes over the crest of Mount Lay, and the Mount Lay area provides some of the best hunting scenery in the country. The hunting is good, although it is not high value, more like a hobby.

Out of the Harney Peak area, there are more peaks to climb. The tops of both Tower and Panther Ridge are very popular, as are the trails to both. The area is also home to Lake Beauvallon, and those who enjoy canoeing will enjoy the Treat and Rush Creek. The canoeing on the Rogue River is world-famous.

C payout State Park is locate in northwest corner of the state. It is 6,200 acres of one of the most popular locations for tourists and locals. One of the nearby attractions of C payoff State Park is the Dare County Fair which is held there every Labor Day. The fair features all of the usual camping activities as well as the rides, food, and events.

The Harney Peak, located southeast of Harney, is the tallest peak in South Dakota. Summer hours are 10am to 6pm, and winter hours are 8am to 12pm. The climb to the top of Harney Peak will take approximately 5 hours. The lose trail from the summit will take approximately 2 hours to the top. Once at the top of Harney Peak, there is a fantastic view of the Double-Flag Airport, and the prayer flags reflect the white sand cove and lighthouse.

To get to Harney Peak, take Route 69 west to resolution and then follow signs to the Harney Peak Visitors Center. There is Harney Peak Road signed just south of this facility, and it is plenty of fun to drive just a little further.
