Lake Tahoe: The Best of the Rest


You kept asking for it, so here it is – a map of the forgotten zones of Tahoe that didn’t geographically fit into one of our three part paper map series.

The Best of the Rest includes ski routes south of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, around Homewood, on the East Shore, in the high alpine of  the Jobs-Freel Group in the Carson Range, and more.

This map is available in digital format only.

This comprehensive topographical route map makes it easy to find new ski lines in the Tahoe backcountry. Covering many of the areas that were left out of our paper map series, it includes some of the raddest descents around – from spine lines near Squaw to big open descents down into Carson Valley.

Peaks with descents on this map include:

  • Twin Peaks
  • Grouse Rock
  • Trimmer Peak
  • Freel Peak
  • Job’s Peak
  • Ellis Peak
  • Stanford Rock
  • and many more!

Route information, including suggested approaches and descents, is marked on a large scale 1:25,000 map to get you home safely.

Descents of all varieties – from killer couloirs to wide open glades – are all covered, so there is something for everyone from the hardened veteran to the beginner tourer.


  • 70+ descents ranging from classics to rarely-skied lines
  • Suggested ascent routes to get you up the hill as efficiently as possible
  • Highly detailed with 40ft contour lines
  • Easily readable with a 1:25,000 scale
