Nature Valley Family Snowshoe Tours


Grab the kids and join us for our Nature Valley Family Afternoon Snowshoe Tours taking place at Northstar California this winter season. These tours are a wonderful way to introduce your little ones to the great outdoors in a fun, unintimidating, and friendly atmosphere.  The tours are open to all ages and will be an easy snowshoe for the whole family. 

Tours will begin at the Cross Country Ski, Telemark & Snowshoe Center at 1:00 p.m. and will last approximately 3 hours. Your guide will lead you on a snowshoe adventure through some of our easier trails to a historic red caboose set in an alpine meadow for hot chocolate, cookies, and snow play!  



Family tours are offered:

  • December 31
  • January 19
  • February 16
  • March 15



The cost is $44 for adults and $28 for children ages 12 and under. Snowshoes are not provided with the tour so bring your own if you have them. There will be snowshoes available for rent along with sleds for children who get tired. Snowshoe rentals are $17. Reservations can be made by calling the Cross-Country Center, by calling/visiting the Northstar Season Pass & Tickets Office located in the Village, or online below, and are highly recommended since this event sells out on a regular basis. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance.

For more information, please call the Cross Country, Telemark & Snowshoe Center at 530.562.3270.
