NDOT to clean sled trash

Take Care Tahoe

The Nevada Department of Transportation is paying for a trash container, two portable toilets and litter collection by the Clean Tahoe Program at the Spooner Summit sled hill from December to April this winter, according to the League to Save Lake Tahoe. The League has lobbied NDOT for three years to take these steps to fight litter at the popular sledding location near the intersection of Highways 28 and 50.

The Spooner Summit sled hill is an unofficial sledding area that isn’t maintained. After many winters of visitors using the area for sledding and leaving sled debris and other trash, the League began removing trash in 2017.
