When it comes to transportation, there are 3 choices this year:

  • FNS Shuttle Vans
  • Shuttle Services
  • Ride Share

Whichever transportation you choose, please make sure to book as early as possible.

Family Nature Summit Rental Vans – back by popular demand!

If you are interested in the possibility of transportation from the Reno-Tahoe International Airport to Granlibakken Tahoe and/or back to the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in one of the Summit Rental Vans, please click on the link below and complete the questions found in Section 2. In order for us to get an idea of the number of Summiteers who are interested in using the Summit Rental Van, please sign at your earliest convenience. Our sign-up for using the Summit Rental Van deadline is July 15th.

There are a limited number of seats and times the Summit Rental Vans will be operating. We do not have the ability to guarantee that all Summiteers will have access to the Summit Rental Vans. We will do our best!

You must sign up here. Once we have your information, we will let you know next steps.
