Whether coming from the direction of Sacramento or Reno, you can check the Caltrans web page on the status of the major highways (Hwy 80, Hwy 50, Hwy 89, Hwy 267, Hwy 431) into Lake Tahoe. You can get similar information by dialing (800) 427-7623.
Parking at both the start and finish is limited; please carpool if possible. Parking will be strictly enforced; you will be towed if you park outside the designated areas. Designated parking will be available on the North side of Polaris and Cedarwood; on the East side of Village; on the West side of Country Club; and on the South side of Highland. However, your best option is parking at the High School at the end of Polaris; a groomed track will be available to skate to the start at the Nordic Center, a distance of less than .5 miles. Plus bag trucks and bathrooms will also be available.
Please do not park in any undesignated areas.
There will be a drop off at the race start for personal gear (clothes, etc) that will be ready for pickup at the finish line.
