We went in the wintertime, so we tried to ski all the resorts. Mount Rose was our favorite place. It had good snow and a Two for Tuesdays deal. During one weekend day we didn't ski. Instead, we took a walk down to Tahoe City to shop and walked down to the lake to check out how clear the water was. You should also drive to Emerald Bay for some great pictures.Quick Tips: A good thing to do if you’re skiing is to buy your lift tickets at the office for Northstar at Tahoe and Alpine Meadows.

We noticed that the weeken...Read More

Best Things Nearby:There were great ski resorts nearby, like Squaw Valley, Northstar at Tahoe, Mount Rose, and Alpine Meadows. It was also very close to a Safeway food store, a great Italian restaurant, and best of all, the lake!Best Things About the Resort:The resort was very close to Highway 267 from Reno and right on Highway 28. The staff was also very friendly. We had great views of the lake from our room.Resort Experience:The resort doesn't look like much from the highway because the units face the lake in a u-shape form.

This is a place to go! The food is very good, and at a good price. This restaurant was right across the street from Edge Lake. This is a cozy place to eat. TRY IT!

The snow wasn't that good in the morning—a bit icy—but as it got later in the day, it was shaping up pretty well. Their terrain park was nice! High camp is place to see, and taking the tram up there is cool! This place is awesome to ski if there is a lot of snow, and the village is also great. Also, when you buy a lift ticket, it’s good till 9pm (for night skiing).
