Winter in Reno & Lake Tahoe

Powder Makes Perfect

There is something magical about winter in Reno Tahoe. Maybe it’s the sight of fresh snow sparkling in the sunshine. The sound of skis racing down freshly-groomed runs. Or the wind in your face as you ride through the winter wonderland on a sleigh ride. With so many activities in Reno and things to do in Lake Tahoe in winter, you'll be sure to make this a trip for the books.

So, grab your warmest coat, a fuzzy hat and some cozy gloves. You’re about to head out for an adventure. Take a look below at all of the exciting Reno Tahoe winter activities that make us a premier four-season destination — sunshine or snowfall.

Things to do in Lake Tahoe in Winter

With our annual snowfall, it’s no surprise that we pride ourselves on our world-class ski resorts, but Reno and Lake Tahoe winter activities go well beyond chairlifts and corduroy ski runs. Anyone can play in the snow and enjoy Reno Tahoe’s winter activities even off the slopes. Maybe you’d prefer snowshoes or sledding. Or to take some laps around the ice rink before settling next to the fire pits at Northstar Resort in Truckee. Really, it’s just one big playground here, especially in the winter.

Things to do in Reno in Winter

Skiing and snowboarding in Lake Tahoe may be just minutes away in the Sierra Nevada, but locals and visitors alike can enjoy winter activities without even leaving the Biggest Little City. Visit Grand Sierra Resort’s 8,000-square-foot ice skating rink, and eat s’mores over one of the resort’s fire pits, or learn to figure skate on the NHL-sized rink of Reno Ice. Explore the city of Reno’s beautiful landscape by taking a winter stroll along the snow-covered Riverwalk and through the locally loved Idlewild and Wingfield Parks.
