Visiting Lake Tahoe in May end.... Need help...

by travelguy99

I am planning to visit Lake Tahoe on May 30th.

Will I be able to play around snow there?

Route is: from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe

Do I need snow chains if I have 4WD SUV?

My mom lives just down the mountain from Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side. Was talking with her last night and she said the tops of the mountains got a dusting last week but it is all melted away. Highly unlikely you'll run across any snow on the highways. To play, you will probably have to take the gondola at Heavenly and even then it will just be left in the shade.

From the weather report there is a good chance you will be able to find snow to play in. In fact one of the ski resorts just said it will reopen this weekend. You will probably not need chains or even 4WD.

Check weather.com. That's what we do whenever planning a road trip from the Bay area to the Sierras. You can also check the California web site for road conditions: www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi
Those of us that live in California use it often.

Having grown up in Tahoe, we used to hike and ski/snowboard the back snowdrifts into late July. So snow is quite possible, but maybe on the portions of the mountians that are more shaded or higher in elevation.

My sister still lives on the north shore. She got snow last week. She says it melted quickly near the lake and in the towns, but stayed near the summits.

Roads should be clear, but either way at that time of year, a 2-wheel drive if adequate.

Thanks a lot for all the replies...

It's been a long winter in the Sierra's--thank God because we need the water. I saw a news report that said that Squaw Valley (ski resort) is re-opening for Memorial Day weekend because they still have so much snow, so I'm sure you'll find plenty around. Don't worry about needing chains--there most likely won't be any more blizzards at this point. Have fun!

It was 84 in the valley today and projected to be higher by mid week. On Friday, Caltrans opened the passes over the Sierra Mtns on Hwy 104 and 108. Hwy 120 (Tioga Pass) still has no estimate on opening, but if weather stays like is is then I would guess a week or so. The park did open Glaicer Point road for the holiday weekend.

Hwy 88, 104 & 108 would be good options to Hwy 120 if you are coming from the east side to the west side and don't want to go all the way to Lake Tahoe to hit Hwy 50.

Re: Visiting Lake Tahoe in May end.... Need help...

by Jamesr3939

Sorry, that is Hwy 4 not 104 that opened. Hwy 108 is just north of Bridgeport off Hwy 395 and brings you in at Sonora, which is just north of the Big Oak Flat entry to Yosemite. Hwy 4 is a little further north off Hwy 395 at Topaz Lake and brings you in to Angels Camp. Sonora or Angels Camp you can take Hwy 49 south to Yosemite.

Travel Tips for South Lake Tahoe

Hidden By Tall Trees!

by lmkluque

Unlike southern California, this area was covered with trees. So thick, it was difficult to see the house next door. One of my fondest memories of Tahoe is waking up in the morning, sitting out on the deck with a hot cup of coffee and watching the blue birds pecking seeds from the ground and squirrels running up and down the trees early, before the neighborhood dogs were let out.

Close to the Bay - Boreal & Sugar Bowl

by Pounder73

the two closest destination to go play in the snow, whether you prefer 2 planks or 1, are Boreal and Sugar Bowl. Stay on the 80 through Sacramento, (about 80 miles) and Boreal will eventually be on your right, can’t miss it… Sugar Bowl is basically behind Boreal.

Do yourself a favor, don’t go to Boreal. It very much only caters to the day trippers and beginners. Even if you are one, you don’t want to surround yourself with others. Sugar Bowl I like much better, but Sierra (decided at Sacramento – the 50 and 80 split) wouldn’t have taken that much longer…

You get what you pay for!

by Geoff_Wright about MacDonalds

MacDonald's isn't really on my list of favourite restaurants, as, I suppose, there are just so many places to chose from. However, this MacDonalds is nicely situated, and has great views of the mountains behind.

Desolation Wilderness

by chewy3326

The Desolation Wilderness is one of America's most popular wilderness areas, and can claim to be the most visited per-acre wilderness in the country. Despite this, there's still plenty of wild in this wilderness, with some High-Sierra type scenery that feels a world away from South Lake Tahoe. Anyone who enters the Desolation Wilderness needs a permit; backcountry permits are available for a fee for those who want to backpack in the wilderness, and free day permits are required for all day-hikers. Desolation Wilderness is managed by Eldorado National Forest, Lake Tahoe Management Unit.

Desolation Wilderness sits on the southwestern corner of Lake Tahoe, and contains quite a few peaks and lakes; some peaks, like Mt. Tallac, go snowcapped late into the summer. Plan hiking trips accordingly. There are many entrances to the wilderness, including the Eagle Falls area, Lily Lake, Mt. Tallac, and Echo Lakes.

Hot Air Ballooning

by kylar68

It was a rather chilly start to the morning but it was all worth it for the views over the southern end of the lake and Emerald Bay. Lake Tahoe Balloons flys from the lake from May to October and from the Carson Valley all year around. It has the only vessel in the world that is certified as a lauch/recovery vessel for hot air balloons.

While cruising to our launch location (dictated by the wind direction) we enjoyed breakfast of hot tea, coffee, hot chocolate with muffins, breakfast bars, cheese/crackers and fresh fruit.

From the observation deck we watched the balloon being unpaked and inflated. There were enough people on this trip for two flight groups, I was in the secoond. We sailed out over the lake then did a quick touchdown before cruising up over the mountains. We clipped the pine trees on the way up and were able to reach out and pick the pine cones.

The views were magnificent especially over Emerald Bay. Unfortunatley the hour long flight was over all too soon and we floated back down to the Tahoe Flyer for a perfect landing on a moving boat.

The balloon was deflated and packed away and we all enjoyed a champagne toast and ballooning stories with out flight pilot Aaron.
