this is just an intial post - there are numerous ski touring options - none of which seem to be written up (yet!)
In fact there's room for a whole section on Nevada ski touring in Nevada generally -obviously there's a small no of people doing stuff but i am not aware of any other website hosting this sort of info for Nevada (unlike California)
I went up south trail from Mt Charleston lodge today (4/4/2011) - started skinning from road at 8.30 am - low avalanche risk - so felt happy on my own without shovel or transceivor - there were a few ski tracks - but the main trail was boots and snowshoes. gthe route is a a nice enclosed gully - max 25 degrees. Cos of altitude and lack of fitness I stopped at 9600 feet at 11 am - after 2000 feet of ascent. But i had done the steep bit and there was good snow to the ridge top No need for axe or crampons - but harscheisen useful. Had superb ski down on pretty much perfect spring snow - steep enough to be interesting - but soft enough to be easy - plenty of snow - the campsite picnic tables at the bottom were almost buried under snow. It was another 2000 feet to mt charleston summit or another 1400' to mt griffiths.
drive to a trailhead - preferably over 7000 feet and put your skis on
