If you're itching to get on the slopes, but don't want to make the trek to Lake Tahoe, consider heading to Mount Rose. Situated a little more than 20 miles southwest of downtown, Mount Rose is the closest ski area to Reno. And at 8,260 feet, it's also Tahoe's highest base resort, making for optimal ski conditions.

According to recent visitors, this is a great family-friendly ski area with varied terrain and a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Though reviewers were satisfied with the conditions, more than a few warned of brutal wind at the top of the mountain. Because of its convenient location, the mountain can get crowded on the weekends, according to travelers. Travelers can avoid some of the congestion by visiting on a weekday.

Round-trip shuttle tickets from downtown Reno cost $20 per person. Stops start at the Atlantis casino at 7:25 a.m. and end at the Grand Sierra Resort at 8:10 a.m. The shuttle heads back to Reno at 4:45 p.m. One-day lift tickets for adults (ages 16 to 99) cost $104, but you can also buy half-day passes for $89. Lift tickets for children between the ages of 6 and 15 cost $64. For more information on tickets and lessons, check the Mt. Rose Ski Resort website.

#1 Lake Tahoe

Sitting only about 40 miles south of "The Biggest Little City" on the border of Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful places in the country, boasting soaring mountains and crystal-clear waters. It's best known as a skiing destination, where visitors will find top-notch facilities like Squaw Valley (which hosted the 1960s Olympic Winter Games) and the massive Heavenly Ski Resort. But Lake Tahoe also makes for an excellent summer getaway thanks to its sprawling beaches, ample boating and fishing opportunities and well-maintained hiking trails.
