What are some of the best ski resorts in Nevada?
Who says you can’t go skiing in Nevada? Anyone who says that is, quite simply, wrong – Nevada is home to several awesome ski resorts, you just need to know where to find them. For example, Mt. Rose Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe is absolutely incredible, serving as the highest-elevation ski spot in all of Nevada. It’s also quite affordable and much more reasonable than other ski resorts tend to be. Others include Diamond Peak, also in the Lake Tahoe area, where there are 30 runs spread out over 655 acres of pristine winter wonderland. Oh, and there’s another amazing ski resort just 45 minutes away from the world-famous Las Vegas strip; head out to Lee Canyon Resort on the peaks of beautiful Mt. Charleston, which boasts an impressive elevation of 11,916 feet. On average, this mountaintop sees about 11 feet of snow every year, which is padded by snowmaking procedures for the ultimate snowy experience. Need a little more Nevada winter magic?

Where can I go snow tubing in Nevada?
Well, there are always the resorts we listed in the above paragraph – but wait, there’s more! Nevada is something of an unsung winter paradise; when most people think of places like Colorado when it comes to skiing or snow tubing, they often overlook Nevada, and we think that ought to be a crime! Head up to Mt. Charleston for some world-class snow tubing adventures, or hit up Lee Canyon and try your hand at tubing runs there. You’ll find plenty of tubing hills and mountains in Reno, Lake Tahoe, and all the other areas of the state that see snowy winters. Nevada’s snowiest city, Incline Village, is a paradise for snow tubers, skiers, snowshoers, and winter enthusiasts. It gets an amazing 95+ inches of snow every year (the US average is 28 inches), so you just know the sledding there is to die for.
