Tahoe Cross-Country Lodge Replacement and Expansion Project

Present Land Use
Recreation, one alternative includes a driveway that crosses residential
Document Description
The existing Tahoe Cross-Country Lodge, which also serves as the Highlands Park and Community Center, is owned by TCPUD and operated by the project applicant and concessionaire, the Tahoe Cross-Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA), under a Concession Agreement with TCPUD. The proposed project would relocate and reconstruct the Tahoe Cross-Country Lodge and would address existing operational deficiencies relative to circulation and parking, storage, staff facilities, and community space; better accommodate existing recreation demand; and improve the quality of the recreation user experience at the lodge. Reconstruction of the lodge would consolidate the existing accessory buildings into a single facility and would provide more amenities to serve guests and employees. In addition, the types of activities at the lodge would be expanded to better serve additional recreational opportunities and community needs. Reconstruction of the lodge would adaptively reuse elements of the historic Schilling Lodge, constructed as a private residence on Lake Tahoe's west shore in 1936, and would eliminate or minimize spillover parking on residential streets. No changes are proposed to the existing Highlands Park trail system or adjacent trails on state property.
