RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Reno Tahoe International Airport is expecting big crowds during this year’s spring break vacation.

This weekend marks the beginning of spring break for many, and the heightened travel season is expected to last through mid-April.

“We are heading home; we had a fun week at spring break we were at Edgewood Tahoe and skiied, had a great time,” said Sheigh Rhodes, traveling with her family.

RNO says they are expecting approximately 14,000 passengers passing through the airport on peak travel days, with the busiest days expected to be March 17, 20, 23, and 24.
