Donations And Fundraising

Your donations installed two new carpet lifts for last winter, which was a part of being selected as the ski area doing the most to grow the sport nationwide. Now Sky Tavern is pleased to announce the next phase of mountain bike trails completed because of your generousity. Click below to donate so Sky Tavern keeps kids moving.

Steve Wentz, world-renown trail builder and owner of Momentum Trail Concepts, built the new entry-level trail at Sky Tavern in late June this year! This build is being funded entirely by donations from members of our community. Big thanks to all of our donors, both large and small! We are starting another fundraising campaign for the completion of our intermediate-level trail and the creation of skills development zones, which will happen later this summer if we can raise the funds necessary to keep Steve and his crew going!!

Join us in supporting a good cause. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Thank you for your support.

Sky Tavern is 501(c)3 nonprofit Nevada Corporation

There have been a substantial number of positive developments at Sky Tavern over the last 18 months. A few recent bike-related examples include:

  • Sky Tavern Inc., a 501c3 non-profit, has obtained a 30-year lease with a 20-year option to extend from the City of Reno.
  • This lease allows for generational investment in the property for programs of all kinds.
  • A comprehensive trail plan has been created to ensure the best possible trail system, which will provide a fun and safe riding experience for ALL rider levels.
  • Last summer there was a well-received effort to overhaul some of the existing trails such as College Boy, Black Rock, and the Challenger Dual Slalom course.
  • The new Tamarack Trail currently connects to the top of Sky Tavern, providing riders with a convenient upper entry point to our newly refurbished trails.
  • New flow trail loops that are easily reached from the base area were constructed and/or enhanced last summer. These loops are accessible for adaptive riders.
  • Adaptive trail standards are being incorporated wherever possible to accommodate skyrocketing demand from riders who use adaptive rigs.    
  • The goal is to establish Sky Tavern as a Cycling Hub within the emerging Reno-to-Tahoe trail network.

    Winter News

  • Sky Tavern won the National Ski Areas Association's biggest award in 2021, The Conversion Cup, for doing the most of any resort to grow the sport.
  • The Webster and Rocco carpet lifts hauled kids and parents over 70,000 times this past season. There were no more long lines to ride the lifts. Less time waiting equals more time learning.
  • The old Pony Tow Lift is being moved to the terrain park for the 2022 season!
  •  The snowmaking and lights project is in the engineering phase.
