For people with disabilities, traveling can be a challenge. And once they get to their vacation destination, they need to make sure that both the accommodations and the attractions are accessible. The good news is in the Lake Tahoe area, the authorities there are always working to upgrade and improve the accessibility of the facilities there to meet universal access requirements. This includes people with disabilities who use wheelchairs. They can now have access to many of the Summer and Winter Things To Do such as the Stream Profile Chamber, the Rainbow Trail, and many of the historic sites.
Achieve Tahoe offers year-round programs to people with disabilities of all kinds. During the summer months, kayaking, sailing, and jet skiing are available with adapted equipment to make it easy for people with mobility issues to manage them. During the winter, they offer a Snowsports Program, which provides ski and snowboard lessons to people with disabilities. Their PSIA-certified instructors are trained to help anyone, no matter their abilities or skill-level, learn to ski/snowboard.
Palisades Tahoe Adaptive Tickets
Palisades Tahoe offers discounted rates on passes for Winter Things To Do for people with disabilities. They can also help you rent adaptive ski and snowboard equipment.
Accessible North Lake Tahoe
The area is famous for the bustling scenes of events and nightlife entertainment. These include concerts, clubs, restaurants, and bars. While many of these establishments provide accessibility for people with disability, sometimes not all of them are that accessible. Also, make sure to head to Heavenly Village; it’s the place to be to enjoy fine dining, shopping at retail stores and quaint boutiques that line the streets all within easy access for everybody.
Wheelchair Accessible Hikes
Lake Tahoe boasts some incredible forest and lake views that everyone can enjoy! Definitely check out these two wheelchair-accessible trails during your trip: Pope-Baldwin Bike Path and the South Lake Tahoe Bike Path. Both trails have great scenic views and intersect with other trails that lead all the way to Nevada. And if you like camping, then you’ll need to put Nevada Beach Campgrounds on your list of must-visit places.
Traveling with disabilities to Tahoe can be a relatively smooth process with little planning and research in advance. Many of the attractions in the area are accessible for all.
