This mountain skis like any Tahoe resort but much closer than all the others. Good balance of beginner, intermediate and expert runs. Being close to Reno is both a pro and con depending how you party the night before. The drive is not far enough to work off the morning hangover. Reno is a great place for a bachelor party if you are throwing one. While there, I recommend going to the Circus Circus Casino bar where they comp your drinks all night as long as you act like you are betting and are generous with your tips. Hit the Golden Nugget Diner during late night for an 'asskicker' and greasy food.
