Be prepared by knowing the conditions. I have never used chains in my 30 years living at Tahoe. However, I own a 4 wheel drive and snow tires. Tahoe does not mean SNOW SNOW SNOW and more SNOW. Right now, there isn't a spec of snow on our roads. Chains are used for "events". ... more

Anthony, median 89448 home values peaked in October of 2006 right at $900k. As of May 2012, Zephyr value has fallen nearly 50% to $460k, and continues to fall roughly 1% per month (with an occasional meaningless uptick). Based on a deepening Euro-recession and bailout frenzy, worsening global debt overhang (expect $20T U.S. debt by 2015), and a huge remaining backlog of bank-owned homes waiting to be listed, I predict Tahoe RE values continuing to fall into 2015, and then wallowing in bargain land for some years thereafter. My Zephyr forecast is $360k by 2015, roughly 1999 all over again.

Then again, nobody can predict the future.

Radon is a natural bi-product of the decomposition of Granite. the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range is Granite ... Yes Radon is present in the area.
