The airport is currently open as a place to warm up and charge phones and will remain open to overnight guests. Parking is available at the airport. Service animals will be the only pets the shelter can accommodate.

The North Tahoe Public Utility District offices at 221 Fairway Drive in Tahoe City will also remain open overnight, though only for warming and cell phone charging.
