We are planning a visit to Yosemite after a stay in Lake Tahoe. We plan to rent a car at the Reno airport fpr the whole trip. Will the road in from that direction be OK as far as snow at that time of year? We would stay one or two nights around Yosemite and I have no idea of what's a good location. We aren't big hikers, but would be up for some short hikes. I read some previous forum posts about some towns that were an hour and a half away from the Valley, which I guess is where many of the main sights are. That is too far away for me, although the options in the Valley seem really expensive or pretty poor quality (read some bad reviews of Yosemite Lodge). We do not camp. Thanks for any advice!
