Winter in Nevada is very exciting. I have found some great things for you to do and see while it’s cold outside.
South Lake Tahoe Dinner and Sleigh Ride
If you looking for something romantic to do, then this is the place to stop. Your dinner sleigh ride will take you on a long sleigh ride though the woods and over the meadow. During the ride, the sleigh driver will teach you about the local land marks. Each sleigh will have warm, soft blankets so you can cuddle with your loved one. During your ride you will travel along lakeside beach which is known to be on of the most spectacular view in the Tahoe area. At the end of your ride you will be brought to dinner. You will have your choice of Steak, Seafood, Chicken or pasta with a beverage and dessert. There is a full var available here for an extra fee. All dinners are served with side dishes. When you have finished and your ready to head back, there will be a shuttle bus waiting for you.
Blackberry Inn at Yosemite Park
This park is known for their summer fun. I bet you didn’t know there was a lot to do here in the winter also. Go Ice skating in the Curry Village’s outdoor ice skating rink. This skating rink has a long history and was first constructed in 1928. Ice skates are available to rent in case you don’t have your own pair. When your ready to warm up just head for the warming hut’s fire pit and treat your self to a nice cup of hot cocoa. Snowshoeing should be the next step. This is a great place to teach beginners about snow. If they can walk then they can snowshoe. Snowshoe rentals are available. A four mile loop can be made from Mirror Lake up to Tenaya Canyon. If you would like something a little more exciting then try the cross country skiing, downhill skiing or snowboarding. All skiing equipment can be rented. Lodging at the Blackberry Inn can be very romantic. They offer many rooms specially decorated to fit your needs. All rooms come with a full hot breakfast.
Diamond Peak Ski Resort
This is one of the smaller ski resorts, but don’t let the size fool you. You will still have the time of your life. The views are the best here. Diamond Peak stands 1,840 vertical feet tall. There is 655 skiable acres. This makes cross country skiing nice. I would suggest that the advanced skiers don’t come here as you might not have as much fun. In a typical year they receive 300 inches of annual snowfall. There are six lifts and thirty different runs. This is a great place for a quiet day without all the lines and people.
Winter Fun Festival
Located in Gold County. The Winter Festival offers three historical and narrated sport utility vehicle trips and 10 separate four wheel drive runs. If you want to enter this you will need to register early. SUV owners do not require any special equipment and stock vehicles usually have no trouble going through the snow as long as they are using four wheel drive and low gear. They have experienced trail guides that select the routes that are historically significant and interesting. They have camping facilities with RV hookups and hot showers at the fairgrounds. There are also various hotels around in case you prefer a nicer sleeping arrangement.
