22222 Mt Rose Hwy, Reno
The ski and snowboard choices are vast in this area, but this perennial locals’ favorite often rises to the top for powder fans. Part of that is sheer experience: it’s the tallest resort to ski on at about 8,200 feet, and the views and snow quality are striking because of it. With more than 60 trails, there’s a variety of options for everyone from the expert to those on their first days on a board or skis. The closeness to Reno proper and great deals for season passes also don’t hurt, we’re sure.
