Visit Lake Tahoe, CA

Private Jet Charter > United States > California

Chartering a private flight is the most secure, comfortable, and luxurious way to arrive in Lake Tahoe, CA. One of the most popular vacation destinations year-round for families along the Pacific and across the United States, your private flight can be arranged into a variety of airports, depending on which side you’re visiting.

Private flights will arrive using Lake Tahoe Airport (FAA: TVL), located in South Lake Tahoe, CA just minutes from U.S. 50 for easy access to the southern, eastern and western shores. If you have a home or accommodations on the northern side, Truckee Tahoe Airport (FAA: TRK) is the ideal choice, with a runway large enough to accommodate heavy jets, and located only 14 miles north of the lake via N Shore Blvd.

Private planes can also be chartered into Nevada for passengers flying to the western side. There are two airport options in Nevada located near the state line, and within easy driving distance to the lake: both Minden-Tahoe Airport (FAA: MEV) and Carson Airport (FAA: CXP) offer private jet runways and FBOs, and Minden is located about a dozen nautical miles south of Carson.

Things to do in Lake Tahoe, CA

Home to winter sports, summers outdoors, shopping, fine dining, and scenic views throughout the year, Lake Tahoe is one of the most popular tourist destinations in both Nevada and California without all the lights.

Winter sports in Tahoe became popular following the 1960 Winter Olympics, with events held at Squaw Valley. Today, during the peak of ski season, thousands of people from along the Pacific Coast and across the country flock to the slopes for downhill skiing. For as beautiful a day can be on the slopes, be aware that the area is well-known for its blizzards, too. On the Nevada side, you’ll also find an assortment of large casinos, and highways providing year-round access to the entire area.

While its snow and ski resorts play a large factor in the area’s tourism, the lake itself offers incredible boating, kayaking, biking, and other outdoor activities during the summer. You can rent a boat and enjoy a day on the water, with picturesque views of the surrounding Sierra Nevada Mountains and incredible landscapes in every direction. In addition to South Lake Tahoe, the most popular tourist spot, you can visit Tahoe City, Truckee, Tahoe Vista, Homewood, Incline Village, Kings Beach, and Crystal Bay.

Many affluent families and luxury travelers have second homes in Tahoe. Booking a one-way flight is the most economical way for summer homeowners to fly private, with the potential for huge savings by using an empty leg plane in your area.

When to go

The best time to visit depends on what you’re planning to do during your stay: if you’re looking to enjoy the ski resorts during the winter seasons, the best times for your flight are between December and May, although you’ll need to book your accommodations well in advance. If you want your toes in the sand, July and August offer the best beach weather, albeit you’ll be surrounded by crowds and umbrellas. Want to visit during a quieter time of the year? The months between March and May and from September to November offer the best of both worlds, without all the congestion on the roads, resorts, mountains, and airports.
