Winter Activities at Tahoe Meadows

Tahoe Meadows is one of the most popular winter fun snow play places for residents of Reno / Tahoe. Activities include sledding and tubing, snowshoeing, crosscountry skiing, and snowmobiling. Snowmobiles are restricted to the southwest part of the area, keeping a safe distance between motorized and human powered activities. Tahoe Meadows is close to the main population areas from Reno south to Carson City and usually easy to get to when the mountains are covered in show. At 8900 feet, Mt. Rose Summit is the highest Sierra pass kept open during winter. Tahoe Meadows is in Nevada and there are no user or parking fees like at California SNO-PARKS.
