Get in hot water on a winter weekend escape to Reno

LA Times | January 11, 2018

The winter wonderland that is the outdoor pool area at Reno's Peppermill resort isn't only because of snowfall. One pool remains open year-round, and when the 90-degree water meets the cold air, it coats the lounge chairs, plants and a gazebo with ice crystals. The hotel doesn't pay a penny to heat the pool; the water comes from volcanic fissures more than three-quarters of a mile beneath the Earth's surface, thanks to the region's abundant geothermal energy. The tab for two, excluding flights and rental car: $60 for dinner at Brasserie St. James and $180 for one night at the Peppermill.
