Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Spooner Summit is a free sledding and tubing area located next to the junction of Highways 50 and 28 along Lake Tahoe's eastern side. The grade varies from steep slopes near the top to mild slopes at the bottom, making it a great location for all sledding abilities. With about a 50-foot elevation difference from its highest point to its lowest point, it's possible to ride a nice distance before coming to a stop.

Because Spooner Summit's is centrally located along Tahoe's eastern side and is the nearest high-elevation sledding hill to Carson City, it can see sizeable crowds on weekends. There are no bathrooms or trash facilities located at the sledding area. Parking is available for free in a lot at the base of the hill.
