Winter/Snow Driving Tips

Be prepared; tips on how to drive safely on roads with snow and ice:

Before driving to Tahoe, check with the Caltrans Highway Information Network (CHIN) 800.427.7623 (a good number to store on your phone) for up to the minute road, traffic conditions and chain control check points when you are driving to Tahoe.

*If you don’t know how or don’t want to install your snow chains, there will be snow chain installers at chain control checkpoints; the cost is $30 for an snow chain installation and $15 for snow chain removal. Caltrans set the prices and provides permits but the installers are their own bosses.

Tip: if you need snow chains, search on craigslist.org for good deals; make sure you purchase the correct tire size chains to fit your tires.
