Those looking for lodging might want to consider Crystal Bay/Stateline. While it ain't Reno in terms of the casinos, it sure is a lot closer to the slopes and the Casino/Hotels there do offer deals. CB is close to Rose and NS and not a terrible trek to AM and Squaw.
Another Casino/Hotel option would be Boomtown, just outside of Verdi. I know they offer Stay/Ski deals, as well.
Also on the North shore, In incline village there is a hyatt (useful if you have hyatt points) and the Parkside Inn at a more economical rate. The Hyatt also has some excellent lodges which can work out a decent rate for 4
