Stay at Tahoe
Ditto Snowmad. Stay at South Lake Tahoe, much prettier than Reno, plenty to do, Casinos on the Nevada side, scenery, shops and trails on the Cal side.
You might also consider Northstar at North Lake Tahoe - Upscale resort, some great runs, and if your trip turns out to be during stormy weather, it's generally more protected than the other resorts. It's fairly close to North Tahoe casinos at Incline Village, and major resorts like Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. Squaw is fantastic, and though I haven't been there in maybe 30 years, so is Alpine.
If you stay at South Lake Tahoe, there are two large resorts nearby - Heavenly, with huge acreage and great runs, and just over the other side of the Sierras (12 miles from town) is Sierra At Tahoe. You can also take a run down to Markleeville (about 25 miles from town) for a nightime visit to the Hot Springs - great way to finish up a day on the slopes, when the weather isn't too rough.
There's also a really nice resort called Homewood, on Tahoe's west side. Not as large as the others, and further from the Casinos and shops, but much more family oriented, surprisingly nice runs for a smaller resort, and plenty of cabin & condo rentals in the area. Less "urban" and more "country" than the other locations. And great views of the Lake.
