Stay Educated

“Know Before You Go” is a key phrase of 2020, but it’s still true — I understand that nature deserves my attention and that knowledge and preparedness for outdoor adventure is my responsibility.

So we’ve put together some insider tips on how to make the most of your time in Tahoe. Our travel suggestions, recommendations, and safety protocols mean you’ll be prepared for whatever adventures come your way.

Why know before you go?

For one, it ensures a safer, more enjoyable experience, which is the only type of experience we want you to have!

After all, how many great travel memories begin with “Remember that time we had to call search and rescue?”

Embrace your inner Scout and be prepared

There are lots of tools to help you know before you go, including our Frequently Asked Questions Page, where you’ll find the answers to lots of commonly asked questions, from weather to what’s open.
