Posted: Updated:

It's a good weekend for winter sports now that we have fresh snow in the mountains. And Lake Tahoe will be celebrating for the next week with SnowFest. Parades, parties and ski races will be taking place in various venues all week long.  In addition you can celebrate food trucks in south Reno, help raise money for nursing scholarships while treasure hunting, and party like a film star for the Oscars. Enjoy!
