driving to South Lake Tahoe

I am flying from LA to Reno renting a car and driving to South Lake Tahoe Nov 15th what do you think the weather would be. Should I have flown into Sacramento instead. I was there in June-that time we drove from LA..loved it. Can't wait to see the beauty in November

RNO is the perfect airport to fly to for Tahoe--especially when there can be snow or ice as all their rental vehicles are equiped for local driving conditions.

We fly from LAX to Reno a couple times a year to drive over to Lake Tahoe.

If you have the time it's 40 min, take the Mt. Rose Hwy. 431 to Incline Village, it's a beautiful drive. Take the 28 south and join the 50 to South Lake Tahoe.

Thank you so much, that makes me feel better. Would have driven our own SUV but due to a prior engagement after I booked has forced us to fly since we will be coming in late..

Thank you CaNative for the suggestion. I too am a Calif Native. We might do that when we leave driving back to Reno since we will be arriving late at night.

Flying to Reno will be better if there is bad weather. Less road closures.

Have fun!
