Snowy road conditions in Lake Tahoe

ROAD CONDITIONS

US I-80 and I-580, CA SR89 and SR267, NV SR431 and SR28. All-weather highways make directions to Tahoe’s North Shore easy to follow. But changes in mountain weather (four seasons here) also mean, for safe driving, it’s a must to check road conditions by phone, online or on live traffic cams like those for I-80 below.
