Where is the snow?

Where can I take the kids to play in the snow tomorrow? We're at Incline Village, North Lake Tahoe, but there doesn't seem to be any snow around here!

Adventure Mountain in South Lake Tahoe is a play area (and site of a MeFi sledding meetup). Looks like they're making snow, but "sledding is not recommended."

I'm in Incline right now, and there is really not any snow. Diamond peak ski resort is open, but is really crowded with skiers- we drove through and didn't see any sledding available. Lots of resorts (Boreal for example) have made quite a bit of snow but I don't know of any with sanctioned sledding areas. I would doubt the Sno-parks have anything as they don't have the facilities to blow snow typically.

I'll be there in a couple of hours and we're hearing from our friends that are up there that the only places for kids with snow are the places with good snow making. We're looking at Diamond Peak, which has a pretty good set-up for learning to ski, but if you want the typical innertube/sledding thing, I don't have a good answer.

Although I realize it is past the deadline for the OP, just in case anyone arrives here via Google I will mention that we did find tubing was up and running at Squaw Valley. Their SnoVenture park had mini-snowmobiles and tubing on man-made snow.
