Super Bowl 50 parties in Reno, Nevada
There will be big parties all over the Reno / Sparks area for 2018’s Super Bowl LII (52). Sports fans will have numerous Super Bowl Sunday parties from which to choose, with food, drink, contests, and giveaways designed to entice Super Bowl LII fans. You’ll be able to party in whatever style suits you, from just relaxing with a beer to really getting it on with a big crowd.

Super Bowl LII on Sunday, February 4, will feature the Philadelphia Eagles vs. New England Patriots. This year’s Super Bowl will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, MN (home of the Minnesota Vikings). Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Reno time. Doors at the Super Bowl parties open a hour or so earlier.

Should you be the betting type, you can wager on the game at most casinos in town, which is handy since that is where most of the big parties will be. There are a bunch of other bets you can play besides just the ultimate winner.

January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month. Ski areas around Reno / Lake Tahoe are offering deals designed to get new skiers and snowboarders on the slopes and to help veterans improve their technique during the ski season. Ski resorts are offering discounts on lessons, lift tickets, rentals and more, giving you incentives to try a new sport.

Not every ski area officially participates in Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, but even those that don’t have pretty good beginner packages for first-timers on the slopes. Check out “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month” for some of the available offerings.

Of course, not everyone wants to slide down a mountain on skis or a snowboard. Learn more about just plain fun in the snow and perhaps some sledding or tubing from “Snow Play Areas in the Lake Tahoe Region.”
