Avoiding Holiday Traffic in Tahoe

Holiday Traffic in Tahoe...
And How to Avoid it.

If you've been to Tahoe in the winter then you know one thing is certain, traffic can be a nightmare. This year could end up being worse with everyone anxious to travel due to the last couple years of isolation. Here are some helpful tips to avoid spending your holiday on the road instead of on the mountain. 
"If your early you're on time, if you're on time you're late." This same rule applies when getting to the resort on time. Leave the house no later than 6:30am-7am if you want to be there by 8am.

Winter Preparedness 2021

Winter is Here... And it's no surprise that Tahoe Winters can be BIG. That's why it's important to be prepared!
Here's a list of reminders to help keep you safe and worry free this winter. 

Make it a habit of checking the weather ahead of time. You don't want to be caught off guard by a storm. A great App for your smart phone is Road Conditions Pro.
