Most cities and counties in the Tahoe region including around the Tahoe Basin and in Truckee and other regions prohibit on-street parking between Nov. 1 and May 1 for snow removal operations. This includes parking in residential neighborhoods and along unofficial snow play areas on highways. Illegally parked vehicles may be ticketed and fined or towed.
Visitors should check local parking regulations before traveling to the region. Park in designated spots only and take local transit when available to ensure the availability of parking at local lodging, including short-term rentals, which may be unavailable during snowstorms.
