Carson City is the perfect winter destination with its close proximity to Lake Tahoe and world class resorts without the driving hassles.
Traditionally, balmy winter days afford visitors the option of hanging out around town and seeing the sights, or whisking up to one of the lake’s premier resorts at the drop of a hat. Heavenly at Lake Tahoe’s south shore is just minutes away, as is Mt. Rose to the north. Most skiing, including world class cross-country skiing, is also close to downtown Carson City.
All the major resorts offer ski and snowboard rentals and lessons, as do a couple of Carson City’s shops.
Location makes Carson City an affordable alternative to lake-side lodging.
