Tubing or other things to do with kids?

We aren't sure there will be much snow left after these warm temps this week. We'll be staying in SLT this Friday & Saturday night. Where should we go for snow? Which resorts have tubing w/ cables to pull us to the top of the hill? Not that I'm lazy, but I've got two little ones and climbing to the top of a hill to sled is enough work w/o having to carry an additional person with you. Would love to hear where the best and/or cheapest tubing places are!

Any other recs? Ice skating or something? Kid friendly casino things on the NV side??

Also, anyone know if the sledding hill on 50 is up and running? Not sure what to expect, but with so little rain and warm temps in SF this winter, I'm guessing Tahoe has also had little snow.

Budget friendly places to eat also needed!

Thanks so much!

" Kid friendly casino things on the NV side??"

In South Lake Tahoe, we always liked Harvey's Casino at Stateline. Kids aren't allowed anywhere near the gaming area. The basement floor has a large arcade for kids of all ages.

We like the Hard Rock Cafe in the hotel for burgers, salads, pastas.

I am sorry that I don't know anything about tubing with a rope tow, but I have some friends that just pull off the side of the road and let the kids have fun in the snow. They said they had fun with the hill just behind Harrah's. ??

There are kid gaming arcades in all the casinos at Stateline, but as CAnative mentioned- Harvey's is the best. There is a small ice skating rink at Heavenly Village in addition to a move theatre. The Horizon also has a movie complex.

The Lakeside Inn has some great dining bargains. They have a prime rib special, and a cheap breakfast.

Sierra-at-Tahoe off Hwy 50 offers sledding with an escalator-like magic carpet to take you back to the top.

There is also an ice skating rink in town by the local library.

Some good dining options are Blue Dog Pizza near the Casinos or The Cantina by the "Y".

Hope this helps!
