Reno Tahoe is the ultimate year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts, but we’re probably most well-known for our epic winters. The unbelievably fluffy powder that falls from the sky during ski season draws skiers and snowboarders from around the world to ski resorts in Reno Tahoe. Februaries have been renamed ‘Februburied’ because Mother Nature simply won’t let up sometimes. (But we won’t complain if nearly every day is a powder day!). Even with all that snow, we enjoy sunny days more than three-quarters of the year, resulting in the types of ski trips some people only dream of.

Reno Tahoe Ski Resorts for Beginners

Many family-friendly Reno Tahoe ski resorts cater to travelers who have never strapped on skis. There are ski resorts in the Lake Tahoe and Reno areas for all levels, from beginner and intermediate to advanced. Taking ski and snowboard lessons will not only help you get your snow legs, but they will also provide you with an expert guide to give you the pro-tips you need to be King or Queen of the Mountain. An investment in lessons will ensure you have the best possible experience on the slopes.

Cross-Country Ski Resorts in Lake Tahoe

If downhill skiing or snowboarding isn’t your speed, take a run at a cross-country ski resort in Lake Tahoe. The slower pace of Nordic skiing allows you to stop and smell the pine trees while taking in stunning views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
