Interstate 80 to Reno was a breeze outside of Sacramento but closer to the Sierra, trucks and cars were almost at a complete stop as holiday travelers inched closer to their destinations Friday.

“Reno for the holidays. Skiing tomorrow,” said driver Sergy Yakovlev.

Before getting to the snow, dozens of drivers  lined up near the Alta exit to put on chains.

“We are going to Reno. It took us 45 minutes just to put the chains and this is the first time to put the chains,” said driver Cenon Fisco

“Last time it took me two hours before I got them on,” said Gregory Brown, who was driving a semi.

In Blue Canyon, snow fell hard.

Caltrans workers comb the roadways to keep them clear.

Despite the bumper to bumper traffic, most families weren’t  complaining.

“Well I do not care because we are on vacation and we will just take our time,” said Fisco.

“of course we are going to ski tomorrow,” said Yakovlev.
