I might have the opportunity to tie in some skiing at Tahoe with a business trip in early February. Rather than make the drive in a rental car from San Francisco, I was thinking I would meet my wife in Reno and stay at one of the resort hotels there and get daily shuttles up to one of the ski areas. Does anyone have some advice on how well that works (based on personal experience) or have any other suggestions? The deals for lodging are awful good. I really don't want to bother with a rental car, so slopeside is the other option I have considered.
Are there any places to stay nearer to the ski areas that would have shuttles and would have easily accessable good dining?
Thanks for any and all advice.
