Winter activities Lake Tahoe has the highest concentration of ski areas in North America, from downhill mountains with beginner, intermediate and high-difficulty runs to cross-country skiing.
Golfing in our region can be a year-round activity. Courses include the state’s oldest links — the Washoe County Golf Course, which was established in 1934 – and the newest courses, including ArrowCreek and Red Hawk. We’re even home to Montreux Golf Club, home of the PGA TOUR stop, Barracuda Championship. Other great Reno courses include Lakeridge and Wolf Run. Lake Tahoe area also offers a dozen championship courses, including Edgewood Tahoe, where the star-studded American Century Championship is held.
Hiking is more than just a sport in Reno Tahoe, it is also a hobby. The beauty of northern Nevada was meant to be seen and explored on foot or bike. Whether at the Sparks Marina, along the Truckee River in downtown Reno or among the pines on the eastern slopes of the Sierra, this is a region where the air is healthy and the scenery is spectacular. Guided tours are available.
With the amount of snow our winters bring, our watersports are action-packed in the summer. The Truckee River winds its way through downtown Reno and Sparks, and a variety of lakes are located in the area, including beautiful Lake Tahoe and Pyramid Lake. The Truckee and Carson Rivers provide outstanding adventure opportunities. Together they offer fabulous kayaking, canoeing, whitewater rafting, all the popular forms of open-water paddling and water-sports like skiing and sailing or an outing on a personal watercraft.
Reno Tahoe is more than a basecamp for outdoor adventure or a hub for casino gaming. The region also boasts a rich history from its Native American roots to its foundation during the frontier days of the western expansion. Today, ties to the past are reflected in many of the region’s 32 museums, while an active community of enthusiasts continue to position Reno Tahoe on the cutting edge of art. Here’s a sample of the area’s diverse offerings:
