Nevada

Nevada

When most people think about Nevada they tend not to think about a ski vacation or family travel opportunities in the winter. No, they are more likely to think about things such as Las Vegas, the Mojave Desert, and the nearby Grand Canyon. However, Nevada is home to a number of excellent ski resorts where you can enjoy the full range of winter sports and enjoy great discount prices when compared to other nearby states such as California, Oregon, Colorado, and Idaho. Experience Nevada ski destinations like Diamond Peak, Mount Rose, and Reno.

What Make Nevada Unique

With these ski resorts, you can enjoy a full range of winter activities like snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and skating—just to mention a few. Several ski resorts are located around Lake Tahoe, giving you the option of enjoying alpine sports such as skating, sledding, and then heading for the mountain to ski, snowboard and enjoy the excellent snow and natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. After a day on the slopes hit the spa for a message, relax in a soothing hot tub, go shopping or head straight to a casino for gambling adventures. Don’t forget to check out the world-class live entertainment and culinary dining experiences.

Major Ski Resorts

The ski resort areas of Nevada provide excellent opportunities for you to add skiing and snowboarding to the list of things that you will do this year. Mount Rose Ski Resort offers you the highest elevation of any of the ski resorts in the vicinity of Lake Tahoe. Excellent views are only the beginning when it comes to this ski resort, as the mountain offers a vertical drop of 1,800 feet, and the average snowfall is around 400 inches a year! Mount Rose also has the advantage of being the closest ski resort to the Reno / Tahoe International Airport so you can fly in and be on the slopes in no time.

The Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is the closest place to ski by the city of Las Vegas. Only 45 minutes away, you can base yourself at the ski resort and make a day trip to Vegas whenever you feel like it, or stay in Vegas and head to the slopes whenever you are ready to take a couple of hours off of the glitz and glamour of the casinos. The longest run goes for 3,000 meters, and the lift serves a vertical drop of 860 feet. Snowmakers cover 75 percent of the terrain, making it easy to get a great ski in whenever you visit or take a Vegas ski vacation.
