no one can guarantee snow. this winter after a very wet start has turned dry. Still lots of winter left. How about the Resort at Squaw Creek.

In Incline Village is the Hyatt Regency Resort at the lake. Spa, pools, firepits, Lone Eagle Grille, casino. There is some shopping, but overall, Tahoe is not a shoppers paradise. Reno has the Malls.


Diamond Peak is a mile up the hill. Ski school for kids.


Near Yosemite...

Both places listed above are good choices. I will add in the Ritz Carlton at Northstar. It is a very very nice place and not cheap. I have not stayed there but took a look around (too much $$ for me).


Tahoe ski resorts just got 6 more inches of snow yesterday!
