Winter's Basecamp: Reno-Tahoe

Highest Concentration of Ski Resorts and All Within Reach

RENO, Nev. With an abundance of deals and transportation options, Reno-Tahoe is one of the most convenient and cost effective winter escapes. Aptly coined America’s Adventure Place, the region is home to the highest concentration of ski resorts in North America, which, coupled with gaming and a lively entertainment scene, makes this High Sierra ski destination this winter’s hottest ticket.

Daron Rahlves Returns from Dubai

Rahlves helped with ski clinics for the U.S. Ski Team and Spyder, skiing indoors

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA), the reigning X Games ski cross champion, has won the fabled Hahnenkamm in Kitzbuehel, Austria, as well as the World Championship super G. But, while doing ski clinics for U.S. Ski Team and personal sponsor Spyder at an indoor ski facility in Dubai recently, he had to answer a question he had never thought about before: "Hey, Daron, what's it like to ski outdoors?"

Rahlves, the 2001 World Champion, spent a few days in Dubai doing clinics with kids and adults in the world's largest indoor ski facility.

Trying Times: Ski Town Tapas

Sample the menu with tapas at these high-country hotspots.

Samplings (Frisco, Colorado)

The name says it all at this casual neighborhood bistro on Frisco’s quaint main drag, a few miles from Breckenridge and Copper. Mix and match Chef Michael Weist’s global small-plate cuisine with more than 220 international wines by the glass, bottle or flight. On the menu, try the duck confit ravioli, Tasmanian salmon and smoked buffalo flank steak. Best seat: at the 20-person community table or the chef’s table by the kitchen.

Trend Report

Harder, better, faster, stronger - and just plain cooler. If it's been awhile since you visited a ski shop, here's what you're missing.

Tour de Force

For someone used to traditional alpine gear, the problem with alpine-touring (AT) bindings and boots was always that they felt flimsy. Now Marker’s Duke, a sturdy, tour-capable binding, is winning converts to AT. And boot brands that previously specialized in upright, lightweight touring boots are offering beefed-up versions that, while tour-capable (if a little heavy), give the alpine skier (like the guy with the Duke binding) the support he’s used to. Examples: Garmont’s Endorphin and Scarpa’s Hurricane (above, $699).

Fit For a King

Alpine Meadows, CA

Follow the sun to a local Lake Tahoe favorite that's just the right size for a long ski weekend.

Rumors flew thicker than Sierra cement when San Francisco developer JMA Ventures bought modest Alpine Meadows. Would JMA try to turn it into another Squaw? Alpine's skiers are a protective bunch, with reason: In a region known for glitz, Alpine has always been the un-Tahoe of Tahoe ski areas.
