Alaska Airlines Begins New Service Between Portland-Reno/Tahoe
Flights leave Portland at 11:10 a.m., arriving in Reno at 12:45 p.m. Service from Reno to Portland leaves at 1:15 p.m. and arrives at 2:50 p.m. Portland-Reno service was last operated by Alaska Airlines in 2009.
Anyone purchasing a ticket before Nov. 11 can get a one-way fare beginning at $64. Pair this savings with Squaw Valley’s Fly and Ski Free Deal http://www.squaw.com/the-mountain/lift-tickets-and-passes/lift-ticket-deals where air travelers present their boarding pass or airline luggage tag and ski or ride for free the afternoon of arrival.
The Portland-Reno/Tahoe flights will be flown for Alaska Airlines by Horizon Air on a 76-seat Bombardier Q400. The Reno-Tahoe International Airport is 45 minutes from many of the Lake Tahoe ski resorts, including Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.
