If you want to ski the resorts around North Lake Tahoe then this is a great base and an amazing price. There is a weekend shuttle to some of the resorts but you’ll need car hire and as parking at the hotel is free this is the easiest way to get to and from the resorts. This hotel is amazing, as opulent and fun as a Vegas hotel with a huge array of facilities, including a spa, choice of restaurants, bar and even its own nightclub! There’s loads to do in Reno too – from golf to brilliant shopping, you can even catch an NBA basketball match.
You must be 21 to enter a casino. People aged under 21 are permitted in the casino public walkways but are not allowed to be near slot machines or gaming tables.
Reno isn’t just a ski holiday – the casinos ensure there is a constant stream of world renowned acts and shows, plus their 24/7 bars and entertainment! We’ve picked a few of the things we loved doing in Reno below.
Outlet shopping – around Reno there are some great outlet stores selling brand names at ridiculous discounts. Really you need a car or to jump in a cab to get to them but you will be well rewarded – our favourite is the Legends complex (approx $10 in a cab each way) which has (to name a few): Adidas, Banana Republic, Bose, Converse, Designer Fragrance Shop, Gap, Guess, Nike, Sketchers, Tommy Hilfiger and Vans, Forever 21, Michael Kors, Volcom
Basketball – the NBA season is during the winter so there are basketball games at home around once a week. If you’re in town then getting tickets is pretty easy and the stadium is a short cab ride from the hotel (approx $15-$20 each way).
Golf – there are over 40 courses within an hours drive of Reno and the majority are open through the winter season! Lakeridge Golf Course is the closest – about 10 minutes – and would probably be about $10 by cab. Red Hawk Golf Club, Wolf Run Golf Club, Arrowcreek Country Club, Wildcreek Golf Course and Somersett Country Club are other local courses that stay open most of the winter. Green fees will range from $30-$60 in the wintertime
Bowling – those familiar with the film King Pin will (probably) know that the final is set in the National Bowling Stadium in Reno, it’s a short drive away but there’s High Sierra Lanes within walking distance.
Downtown Reno – you can wonder into the downtown region, it takes around 30mins but we’d recommend driving as it’s a busy road and not the best walk. When you are there the river walk is worth strolling down, as you’d expect there’s plenty more shopping and it has a great choice of restaurants and bars.
