We made SNOW at Sky Tavern!

We made SNOW at Sky Tavern!

Wednesday, November 16, 2022 - An extra snowy day at Sky Tavern
Snowmaking has been in the master plan of Sky Tavern since the City of Reno purchased the ski area for youth in 1967.
On Wednesday November 16th at 5 pm over 50 years of waiting, planning and fundraising made snow. Sky Tavern fired up a TechoAlpin fan gun for a test and it was successful! It happened. Sky Tavern made snow for the first time ever!
This test proved the concept of snowmaking at Sky Tavern was solid. It took the nonprofit’s energized Board of Directors and the community in general to make this project come true. Snowmaking will give the kids of the Truckee Meadows a more reliable opening season and help provide additional programs. Construction for Phase 1 of the Snowmaking capital campaign will begin in the Spring of 2023.
Sky Tavern would like to thank everyone that donated to the snowmaking fund and for the technical support of TechnoAlpin Snowmaking. Without you snowmaking would still be just a wish for the kids. We are doing this!

If you are signed up as a parent or volunteer for the SkyKids program (4-5 year olds) this is your orientation. You can leave the kiddos at home and come take in the details that will cover all things SkyKids. If you are new to Sky Tavern this is the program where you will learn that you can easily teach someone else's kiddo how to ski. We will show you everything. Some people would say being a part of SkyKids is one of the most rewarding positions on the mountain...they may be right because as Bill get paid in miles of smiles. You'll be buzzing around the base area with an eager 4-5 year old asking you for more fruit snacks in no time...

Our annual Ski Swap Fundraiser was a HUGE success! It was a record breaking year and that happened because of our incredible volunteers, patrons, local vendors and community support! Whether you came and dusted shelves, bought skis or a new board, hung out at the food trucks with friends or worked nonstop to help make this a success, we thank you!
