Since 1948, the volunteer-based program has taught over 100,000 kids to ski and snowboard. Former World Cup ski racer Tamara McKinney and Reno’s first Olympic Gold Medalist, half-pipe skier David Wise, both learned to ski at Sky Tavern.

Located on the Mt. Rose Highway less than 30 minutes from downtown Reno, the non-profit 501(c)(3) offers adaptive programs, junior instructor training, racing, and a family atmosphere. More recently, Sky Tavern has also become a year-round destination for mountain biking, summer camps, and the popular summer music series.
