Several Factors Make 436 Barrett Drive Easily Accessible
436 Barrett Drive is 1 mile from Kingsbury Grade, (Hwy 207).
The Grade is a good road.
The Grade is the fastest, shortest, and most direct route in and out of South Lake Tahoe.
Lake Tahoe's largest and best casinos are at the bottom of the Grade.
Heavenly Ski Area's Nevada ski lifts are at the summit of Kingsbury Grade.
Kingsbury Grade has light traffic compared with other Tahoe highways.
Relatively few people know that the Grade is a good road in and out of the basin, because it does not look like a major road on most maps.  So the Grade has much less traffic than the other 5 routes in and out of the Tahoe basin.
The Grade does not traverse any towns.
The other routes in and out of the Tahoe Basin traverse many busy incorporated areas.
You cross only one stoplight between 436 Barrett Drive and Tahoe's largest and best casinos.
You cross no stoplights between Hwy 395 and 436 Barrett Drive.
Hwy 395 runs directly to Reno International Airport, and is the main highway on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada from Southern California to Northern California.

The Grade is a moderate speed two lane highway, & is less stressful to drive than Hwy 50.

Highway 50 is the route that most people use to access most other areas in South Lake Tahoe.
Highway 50 is a curvy 4 lane undivided highway.  Traffic is much heavier and moves faster on 50.

Kingsbury Grade can get you to Reno International Airport on time when other roads can't.


Kingsbury Grade is a Scenic Route:

Kingsbury Grade offers spectacular views of the Carson Valley and surrounding mountain ranges, and passes through wildlife areas and ranches.

436 Barrett Drive is in Nevada:

The Nevada side of Lake Tahoe is much less densely populated than the California side, so you encounter fewer people and less traffic congestion and weather related delays.  Also, snow removal services are much better on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe.
Several Factors Make 436 Barrett Drive Easily Accessible in Winter

436 Barrett Drive is surrounded by excellent snow removal services.

436 Barrett Drive gets large amounts of snow due to its high elevation and geographic situation.
Despite the heavy snow, 436 Barrett Drive is very accessible due to its proximity to key highways and due to the excellent snow removal services in the neighborhood.

Snow removal services in the neighborhood are purchased directly by property owners.

Because the service is private, and we pay them directly, they are very responsive and efficient.
Tax and government systems cannot rival it in efficiency, quality, and responsiveness.

436 Barrett Drive is 100 yards from the neighborhood school bus route.

Schools almost never close in Tahoe.
If the big heavy school bus can get there in the snow, your small light car can get there in the snow.

436 Barrett Drive is 1 mile from Kingsbury Grade, (Hwy 207), along the school bus route.

The Grade links Lake Tahoe with the Minden, the Douglass County Seat, in the Carson Valley.
Because the Grade is the main road for all the county government vehicles in the area,
the County road and snow removal crews keep the Grade in good repair and snow free.

The Grade is also the most direct route in and out of the Tahoe Basin.

So you spend relatively little time driving in the snow at high elevation when you drive the Grade to and from the Lake.  436 Barrett Drive is at the crest of the Sierra Nevada, but is also at the edge of the Great Basin and desert.  When you cross Daggett Summit on the Grade, just 1.5 miles from 436 Barrett Drive, you drop immediately into the arid Carson Valley.  The Carson Valley is in the rain shadow of the Sierra Nevada, thus the Grade is a fast and snow free route to Lake Tahoe.
