Nevada residents don’t have to fly to a coast to find fun. They are surrounded by nature’s beauty, with boating, world-class ski resorts, camping, hiking and fishing. In addition, some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world are right outside the back door, from the Las Vegas Strip, to The Biggest Little City in the World, to Cowboy Country.
No matter where you live in the state, and no matter your interests, Nevada has what you’re looking for just a short drive down the road.
Nevada is the home to world-class ski resorts open to everyone from first-timers to thrill seekers looking for Double Diamond trails that deliver excitement and natural beauty.
The Lake Tahoe region offers a range of outdoor winter activities from skiing to snowboarding, ice skating to winter festivals the whole family will enjoy. When it comes to downhill skiing, the Lake Tahoe area offers accommodations and activities that draw people from around the world.
Many ski resorts offer low-cost rental gear, discounted lift tickets and even free ski lessons. Weekday rates are usually lower, so if you can book a weekday or two at a Nevada ski resort, you may save a few dollars.
