??? about activities for children in LT in December

We will be arriving a few days before Christmas and have 8 adults and 3 children. Some of us will be skiing, but can you give me some suggestions of those staying back with the children who won't be skiing each day? Is there a place to rent sleds or a local Walmart to buy "snow" (sleds, etc.) items? We are from TX, where we rarely get snow, so building snowmen, sledding, snowmobiling, etc. will be a blast for us! Thanks for any help/advice you can give us!

In the village area there is an outdoor ice rink where the kids can skate.

Heavenly has an Adventure Peak for non-skiers which includes equipment:

Since that's rather spendy you can use California Sno Parks. Here's one that's near SLT:

Or you can head west on 50:

If the weather is good maybe Hope Valley:

There is a KMart at the Y in SLT where you can pick up pretty much anything you need:

1056 Emerald Bay Road

South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150
