Play in the snow around Reno and Tahoe

December 7, 2016

We already have a nice covering of snow this season. Tahoe area ski resorts are up and running and there is plenty of snow on the slopes for good, old fashioned snow play. Whatever your passion – sledding, tubing, snowshoeing, snowman building, etc. – there is plenty of the white stuff for a great family outing.

The good news is that many of the best Nevada snow play areas are free. A couple to consider are close to Reno – Galena Creek Visitor Center and Recreation Area and Tahoe Meadows. However, if you venture over to the California side, a SNO-PARK permit will be required if you use any of the snow play areas maintained by CalTrans.

If you want something with more amenities and are willing to pay, consider the snow play, tubing and sledding parks maintained by many of the ski resorts. For a rundown of snow play opportunities, refer to “Snow Play Areas in the Lake Tahoe Region.”
