Labor Day Weekend on the Pass

There’s a lot planned for this weekend but please verify event details with venues before traveling. The Caldor fire threatening South Lake Tahoe is still not contained. Traffic on upper highway 4 and across the pass is heavier than usual as people evacuate the Tahoe area, please be aware of the increased traffic and especially careful when driving our beautiful but narrow roads.

Last night, the USFS closed all 20 National Forests in California in an effort to reduce wildfire risk.  We are grateful to all the firefighters and others who are working to keep our communities safe during this difficult and disturbing time. Please help them out by being particularly careful and leaving our beautiful area as lovely as (or maybe even cleaner than) you found it!

And, on this Labor Day weekend, we recognize and appreciate all the people who work every day to make our lives safer, easier, or just a lot more fun.  Please be patient and remember to thank them!
