Imagine yourself in a small plane. You squinting to watch the ground pass, thinking about the desert your eyes are now returning to. With an effort, you manage to pinpoint the details as the tree line, then a rugged brown mountain pass, gradually came up to meet the ribbon of terrain. Suddenly, the ground below your plane dissolves away in a blur of yellow, green and blue.

Alternatively, you can take the route via Yosemite. You start in LA by getting to CA-14, the Antelope Valley Freeway. Take this to US-395 and head north – it's the same route people take to drive from LA to Mammoth to go skiing. Connect with US-50 after Yosemite to continue on to Lake Tahoe. This route gets more snow and can even be closed during the winter time. Either route will take you about eight hours, and each one is about 450 miles in distance.Reno is about a 45-minute drive from Lake Tahoe, and there are multiple options to get between the two cities. If you're visiting a ski resort in Lake Tahoe, many offer free shuttle service from Reno's airport. If you're not staying at a ski resort, a good option is North Lake Tahoe Express. They have frequent mini-bus service between various points in Reno and destinations in Tahoe. Once you're in Lake Tahoe, the area's regional bus transportation system, TART (Tahoe Truckee Area Regional Transit), gets you all over the Tahoe area, including to all the ski resorts.

The easiest way to get from LA to Tahoe is to hop on a short, 90-minute-long flight. Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) is just south of downtown Reno and about an hour by car from Lake Tahoe. American, United, and Southwest all have non-stop flights to RNO from LAX. You can fly from other LA-area airports (BUR or SNA), but they all require a connection, except Long Beach (LGB). LGB has a daily, direct flight to Reno on JetBlue. (Source: www.planetware.com)
