Nevada Correspondence

Nevada Correspondence - February 2017

In this edition: Baker, Boulder City, Elko, Ely, Las Vegas, Laughlin, Lincoln County, Mesquite, Mineral County, Mount Rose, South Lake Tahoe   Baker Lehman Caves Lint and Restoration Camp                                                                    A Lint Camp volunteer dusting a shield in Lehman Caves It’s winter, which means visitation is low, despite a record-breaking 130,000 visitors to Great Basin National Park last year. That makes it an ideal time for the annual Lehman Caves Lint and Restoration Camp.

Where to Do It All in and around the Tahoe Basin in Winter

Where to Stay:Click Here for lodgings One can obviously stay in the Tahoe Basin, however in a year like this there is a great possibility things will be completely booked up. So note that Reno also offers a ton of options, you can stay off the beaten path and closer to the mountains or you can stay downtown, centrally locate or post up in south Reno. Staying in Reno keeps you closest to the ski resorts at the north end of the Tahoe Basin, namely, Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, Donner Ski Ranch, Boreal, Mount Rose and Diamond Peak. One important note about Reno is that is a has an avenue that circles the entire city, including sparks. This is called McCarren avenue, and in western Reno you can travel on McCarren to I-80 to quickly head toward the northern most ski resorts.Read more
