Now is the time to play in the snow around Reno and Lake Tahoe

February 8, 2021

There’s a ton of new snow on the slopes after recent big storms, both at Reno area snow play areas and Tahoe area ski resorts. Whatever you find to be good fun – sledding, tubing, snowshoeing, snowman building, etc. – there is plenty of snow out there for a great family outing.

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 park at any of the snow play areas maintained by Caltrans.

If you are willing to pay for a few creature comforts, 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.”
