Set in the tranquil countryside around Lake Tahoe, Diamond Peak Ski Resort is the perfect destination for beginners. Regarded as ‘the friendliest mountain’ in the region, it is a real favorite among families and ideal for learning the basics.

Las Vegas was never going to be left out of Nevada’s ski scene. Just an hour’s drive from the glitz and glamour of Sin City is the popular resort of Lee Canyon.

Where Las Vegas has Lee Canyon, Reno has Mount Rose – the “Biggest Little Ski Mountain”. Originally two separate resorts, the runs from both the Rose and Slide sides have since merged to offer beginner and blue trails as well as advanced runs all set against a backdrop of Nevada’s Truckee Meadows.
4. Heavenly Mountain Resort
A name to match its surroundings, Heavenly Mountain Resort boasts the slopes and views for a magnificent ski resort. Head to the top of Ridge Run and take in the stunning panoramic views of Lake Tahoe and the arid desert as you elegantly descend this unforgettable course.
