They say even a bad day on the slopes is better than a good day in the office…so why are you still staring at your computer screen? With one-way fares starting as low as $39 into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, it’s never been easier or more affordable to book a last minute getaway to the slopes in Lake Tahoe. With new nonstop service from gateway air markets such as New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and Oakland, RTIA now offers 120 daily flights and from 23 non-stop destinations and one-stop service from almost anywhere in the U.S.

Think about it – you can take a morning flight into Reno and be skiing or riding the same afternoon. If that’s not enough, how does free skiing and riding the day you arrive sound? It’s true – many of the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts are offering free lift tickets the day you arrive. All you need to do is hold onto that boarding pass. Check out all the Lake Tahoe Ski Same Day offers below, and learn more about all the flights to and from Reno-Tahoe International Airport.
