You can play in the snow with your family without having to drive all the way to Lake Tahoe or Reno.
At Leland Meadows you can have fun in the snow. They have inner tubes that have tow straps on them so you can be towed up the hill and then you slide down. So much easier for us older folks who do not want to drag the tube, while we walk up the hill. For the younger and more energenic, you can still do it the old fashioned way.
My Family and some friends enjoyed both the towing as shown on left and the old fashioned way pictured below. If you like to ski (like I do) you can also visit dodge ridge which is about 15 to 20 minutes away. Go to www.snowplay.com to find leland meadows and you can find dodge ridge at http://www.dodgeridge.com/site/index.php You can play for the day and go home or if your prefer you can stay at one of the wonderful cabins or hotels and spend more days in the snow.
