FAQs

What time do you begin snow removal?

Sierra Tahoe Snow Removal will begin snow removal operations when snowfall reaches a depth of approximately 3”. We operate day & night; therefore, each run is storm dependant so we cannot guarantee an exact time of clearing. We provide one clearing every 24 hours.  Start times may vary depending on current conditions and weather predictions.
