First time snow: where to sled with kids this weekend

We are now in San Francisco going to Tahoe this weekend looking for snow. It is our first time in snow (we are from Rio de Janeiro). Where should we go to kids of 6 and 8 years old have fun sledding?We ' ve heard that snow is a little small this time, so is there a place that you suggest with good snow for kids sledding with facilities? Maybe a public snow area, or even a small hill on the street. We don't have a hotel since we are spending the day only. Many thanks in advance.

My daughter and her family from Costa Rica went to Tahoe last Friday and found snow at Squaw Valley----man made snow, but they say that people were snowboarding and skiing.

Just to the east of MontBleu hotel/casino is a small meadow where they have been making snow and have created sledding hills. You have to rent their equipment, but it is snow and the kids will probably have a great time. MontBleu is located at the California/Nevada border at the South Shore. Also, I believe there is a sledding hill at the summit of Hwy 50 (Echo Summit) on the way to Lake Tahoe.

You are driving to Tahoe just for the day and back to SF? That is a very very long day. Have you considered staying somewhere closer?

Thanks for all suggestions. We heard that snowed a little today. So I think we will find snow places more easily to sled. Thanks again.
