Lake Tahoe is located in one of the most highly recognized soaring regions in the world. Minden/Tahoe Airport (MEV) is the hub of this activity followed by Truckee Airport. Both are easily accessable by car. Minden is about thirty minutes and Truckee about forty-five minutes driving time. The summer conditions are excellent for rides and cross country flying while the winter is the season for mountain wave flying.
The great part about Lakeside Inn is that our location is in between both of these sites and there are many additional recreational activities to enjoy while you are not soaring. We recommend SoarNV for soaring arrangements. A glider flight above Lake Tahoe is one of the most dramatic and scenic experiences to be had anywhere.
