Please join us on November 30th to let IVGID know we want to build a XC ski lodge and multi-use venue on the Incline Meadows property along Mt Rose Highway. This is your chance to have your voice heard!
IVGID will be holding a Community Services Master Plan meeting on Wednesday, 11/30 from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Chateau. On the agenda is a discussion of building a cross country ski lodge and multi-use venue at the Incline Meadows property. The more people who show up with enthusiasm, the more likely our vision of an all-winter cross country ski area benefitting the greater Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe, and northern Nevada community will become a reality.
When: 5:30 – 7:30pm (light refreshments served at 5:00pm)
Where: Chateau at Incline Village (955 Fairway Blvd.)
Who: IVGID and community of XC ski and Nordic center enthusiasts
What: A meeting to discuss establishing a cross country ski lodge and multi-use venue on the IVGID owned Incline Meadows property along Mt Rose Highway.

Why establish a XC ski area at Incline Meadows?
A cross country ski area will:
- 1) Contribute to the economic vitality of Incline Village and the Lake Tahoe Basin,
- 2) Provide year-round recreation opportunities for residents and visitors
- 3) Serve as a forum for youth engagement
- 4) Offer groomed tracks for cross country skiing in even dry/drought years
Why is the Incline Meadows property the best area to establish a cross country ski area?
It is at high altitude with snow lasting extra days, weeks, months, compared to lower elevation areas. It is also conveniently located for Incline Village area residents and visitors. There are no other facilities within at least a 30 minute driving distance. IVGID already owns the land, so it does not cost the community to purchase the terrain.
What other activities could be included in the multi-use venue?
- · Nordic skiing
- · Skate skiing
- · Snowshoeing
- · Skijoring
- · Fat bike
- · Ski Clinics
- · School Nordic Programs
- · Hiking
- · Biking
- · Scouts
- · Conferences
