Austin to Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe Fact - Resume - CV

Getting TO your destination is the worst part of travel. Nobody likes switching planes or driving across a barren wasteland of nothingness. Well, if you’re flying from Austin to Lake Tahoe, the good news is that you don’t need to do either of those things. Austin to Lake Tahoe flights are direct! That’s right, as of September 2021, you can fly nonstop from Austin right into Reno-Tahoe airport via American. Not enough? Here are a few more reasons that you should start planning that Austin to Lake Tahoe trip today.

Sample Everything The Mountains Have To Offer

When going on vacation, the goal is to experience things you can’t see or do at home. For starters, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. The scenery is worth the visit alone. As you look beyond the jaw-dropping views, you’ll find an almost infinite number of activities to pick from. Pedal your heart out via dirt or pavement by sampling the 100’s of miles of world class singletrack and the paved paths you can take on a cruiser or a road bike. Take in eighteen at one of the world-renowned golf courses. Spend the day lounging on the miles and miles of Caribbean-like beaches. In the winter, slash some powder at more than a dozen ski resorts within an hour’s drive. And that’s just scratching the surface of all the things to do in Lake Tahoe.

Beat The Summer Heat AND Humidity

Yes, the capital of the Lone Star state has a lot to offer. Musically inclined and yet outdoorsy. A little bit weird but with a dash of Midwestern hospitality. There’s A LOT to love about it, but we all can use a break from the mid-summer heat and humidity. Lake Tahoe’s summer weather is the epitome of perfection. Nearly 90% of our days are sunny and the summer temps on average hover between 69 and 77 degrees with almost no humidity. Combine that with miles and miles of shoreline and you got the perfect beach destination.

Snow The Way A Texan Would Want It

There’s a reason that you call Austin home. You’re not a big fan of cold weather. When it comes to a snow destination, Tahoe is #1 for Texans. In fact, if they were giving out an award for the best weather to ski in Lake Tahoe, we would win every winter. For starters, we get some of the most snow in the country. Nearly 500 inches of snow blankets the peaks every season, but it comes on average only 50 days per year. This translates to about three days of beautiful sunshine weather for every day of fresh powder. In summary, have your cake and eat it too!
