The Dog Wash of Tahoe is the Cheers Bar for dogs. Dogs love to go where everybody knows their name, and they’re always glad you came…

Did you run out the door without time to give your dog a bath? Perhaps your dog took a dip in the lake and now resembles a mudpie. The Dog Wash of Tahoe will pamper your pooch with friendship and individualized care.

David & Jamie have been bathing my 9 month old puppy for the past six months. When I arrive at the shop, Miwok pulls me to the front door, anxious to visit with all his friends at the Dog Wash of Tahoe.

The Dog Wash of Tahoe is a favorite among Tahoe locals, and can be quite busy at times. I recommend you make an appointment, if possible. The staff is great at fitting you in! (530) 542-2969

If you prefer to bathe your dog yourself, no problem! The Dog Wash of Tahoe is open for self-bathing as well. Stop on by during normal business hours Tuesday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The US Forest Service Conservation staff is skiing the mountain every Friday to help educate the public about the mission of the Forest Service in managing public land used for skiing. Rangers spend an hour skiing with visitors, while leading an interpretive tour of Heavenly Mountain, to improve understanding of the issues facing our natural resources, and promote the stewardship of our national treasures.

Ski Heavenly and join the fun each Friday at 1 pm through March 27th.  You will meet up with your ranger at the Tamarack Lodge located at the top of Heavenly’s Gondola. Be sure to arrive early. Groups are small, only 12 skiers each. You need to have a Heavenly Ski pass for the day, and be an intermediate level skier. Heavenly Ski passes will cost some change but the interpretive tour with a Forest Ranger is FREE! For more information about this amazing opportunity contact Eliza C. Escobar at 530-543-2730 or visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/goto/ltbmu/SkiRanger.

If you’re going… You will need to get to the Gondola located in Heavenly Village on US-50 about two blocks before the California/Nevada state line. Before you can take the Gondola up the mountain to Tamarack Lodge you will need to find parking. Heavenly offers free parking at California Lodge, Stagecoach Lodge, and Boulder Lodge. From these parking areas you can take a free shuttle to the Gondola. Enjoy!
