Posted by Jackie Latragna on Wednesday, January 25th, 2023 at 7:05pm

Residents of Northern Nevada are lucky to have their pick of activities to enjoy both indoors and outdoors. With Lake Tahoe just a 30-minute drive away from the city, outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy four mild seasons to peak every interest. Right here in Reno there are events ranging from classical music series to brewery tours to monster truck shows, and everything in between. Please enjoy this selection of attractions and activities to enjoy the rest of winter right here in Reno-Tahoe. 



Lake Tahoe is one of the largest alpine lakes in the world and is home to 15 ski resorts, each with their own unique slice of heaven in the Sierra Nevada mountains. The famous resorts dot both the Nevada and California side of the lake, offering some of the freshest powder for skiing, snowboarding, and even more snow sports. The annual snowfall in the Lake Tahoe region averages over 400 inches, making it the perfect winter playground. 



Snowshoeing is an enjoyable and low impact way to explore Tahoe’s backcountry. There are many places to snowshoe, from flat and easy to steep and challenging. Click here to discover specific regions around the lake to take your trek. 



One of the best ways to make the most of your day avoiding the lift lines is to hop on a snowmobile. These vehicles can take you across the endless snowy landscape with a little shot of adrenaline. Whether a mellow cruise through the woods or climbing great heights to snag some epic views, there are multiple places around the lake to charter a snowmobile tour. 


Ice Skating

Take a break from skiing, sledding, or shoeing and hit the ice rink. There are several in the area, both Reno and Tahoe, for both beginner and advanced skaters.

It is an annual event that celebrates the exceptional area of North Lake Tahoe and all it has to offer by showcasing the relationship between the North Lake Tahoe community and the people who visit each winter to experience the area.

KC and the Sunshine Band

March 4 at the Nugget Casino Resort

KC and the Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 50 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey – KC for short – developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “GET DOWN TONIGHT”, “THAT’S THE WAY (I LIKE IT)” and “SHAKE YOUR BOOTY”.
