For those of you living more than a few hours drive from Tahoe, the following information may be useful.
The jet airport in South Lake Tahoe (TVL) is only ten miles from Lake Village but it is small, poorly serviced by the major carriers, and subject to snow closures during ski season. The next closest jet airport is Reno/Tahoe International (RNO) in Reno, Nevada (57 miles - 75 minutes by road). It is a full-service airport and very reliable with few weather closures. Both of these airports are on our ski map and our golf map pages in this web site. In order of increasing driving distance are the jetports at Sacramento (SMF - 2 hours), Oakland (OAK - 3.5 hours), San Francisco (SFO - 200 miles - 4 hours), San Jose (SJC - 4.5 hours), and Los Angeles (LAX - 9 hours). All the US domestic carriers service some or all of these airports. Virtually all international carriers service San Francisco and you can drive or take a commuter flight to Reno. In other words, you have lots of choices for airline service. Personally, I normally fly to Tahoe via Reno, Sacramento, or San Francisco and then drive.
