Only an hour or so away from premium ski resorts, alpine trails and mountain landscapes, Reno has long been the landing spot for those looking to take in the beauty of the Sierra Nevada Mountains through sports and recreation. With Crystal Range, Bald Mountain Range, and the rest of the Sierra Nevadas nearby, not to mention a fair representation of all four seasons at different elevations, it’s no wonder that this area is a world-class destination for mountain sports.

We’re working to create a comprehensive resource for sports equipment, rentals, shuttles and other hospitality programs that aid in seeking out some of the best mountain sports areas in the world. But first we wanted to develop a comprehensive list of mountain sports specific to the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.
