Not far from the Mt Rose summit in northern Nevada, a quick 20 minute snowshoe from the highway (Nevada 431) will get you to this ridge that has a gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe. The best part is, there are chickadees everywhere, just waiting to take a treat right from your hand.
If you go (you really should!), Chickadee Ridge is on the east side of the highway at Tahoe Meadows. There is parking on both sides of the road and there are usually people everywhere enjoying all the winter sports. There should be a well-worn path up to the ridge.
