TAHOE – The Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association (TCCSEA) is a nonprofit 501©(3) corporation whose mission is to promote the sport of cross country skiing through educational activities for children and adults.

In 1999, the TCCSEA Board of Directors, consisting of several local residents, business owners, coaches and athletes, entered a concession agreement with the Tahoe City Public Utility District to operate Tahoe Cross Country Ski Area. Over the past decade, Tahoe Cross Country has established itself as one of the top ski areas in the United States.

The programs

Through the partnership with the Tahoe City Public Utility District, Tahoe Cross Country provides several educational programs to its community members. The Strider Gliders After-School Ski Program is an eight-week program that includes ski instruction, equipment use for the winter, and ski trail access for a nominal fee, thanks to more than 2,000 hours of community support donated each season. The Winter Discovery Center provides a place-based science/ski program to third, fourth and fifth-grade students from the Lake Tahoe region. Free Skiing for Schools Program provides free skiing to teachers and their students, giving all children the opportunity to participate in winter physical activity. These are examples of the programs developed over the years.

Tahoe Cross Country Ski Education Association provides school children in the community with an opportunity to learn and participate in a sport that will provide lifelong enjoyment and health benefits. Motivated individuals gain a foundation for world-class competitive training. Many young athletes from the area move on to national and international Nordic skiing competition. TCCSEA supports its local Nordic ski team from North Tahoe Middle and High Schools by providing free trail access, coaching support and ski equipment.
