Moderate hike with great views, including Lake Tahoe, meadow and waterfall. Easy, plentiful parking. We hiked in August, yet still found snow for photo op. This is a section of the Tahoe Rim Trail.

The closest ski resort to the city of Reno, easy to get to. And relatively affordable in an area of extreme prices. Good slopes. Popular.

Highest resort in the Tahoe area. Small but challenging runs. The Chutes are some of the most challenging skiing in the area. Good food at both Rose and Slide Restaurants. Avoid on windy days.

Love Mt. Rose Ski Resort! Challenging runs, lots of variety, reasonable rates - especially on Thursdays for ladies at $29 for a lift ticket! Very convenient from Incline Beach or Reno. Friendly staff and good food service.

This is a great local mountain less than 1/2 hour from Reno. It has every thing from beginner runs to expert chutes. During the week it is like a private mountain. I skied this mountain from Nov to May

Scheels in Sparks (next-to and east of Reno) is probably your best bet for snow clothes and ski equipment. You can also rent your ski equipment directly at the Mt Rose ski lodge.
