Snow is almost here!

“I have possibly the steepest driveway with some of the heaviest snow loading and drifting, in all of Tahoe Donner and Derek was able to clear it no problem. Derek was fast and efficient, and was quick to respond to calls, if I needed any additional clearing. In addition Derek was able to save me a substantial amount of money. I highly recommend choosing LarsonSnow for all your snow clearing needs.”

About Us

J. Derek Larson, Owner and Operator
My wife and I moved to Truckee in 1998.  We were both teachers in the San Franciso Bay Area and were attracted to Truckee because of the mountain lifestyle and the at that time, affordable housing prices.  We moved to Prosser Lakeview and rode the real estate boom up into a lot in Tahoe Donner where we managed to build our own home.Larson Family  I am now an Adjunct Professor of Biology at Sierra College in Truckee. As much as I love the work, it is part-time and is not enough to support living in the Tahoe area.  Snow removal seemed to be the perfect niche to fill in the highest part of Tahoe Donner, and it is the perfect complement to part time teaching–since class is cancelled on the heaviest snow days!  I have always enjoyed tinkering with machines big and small, and I enjoy physical labor.  In the summer-time, I run a small guide service and tour company with my wife that guides local outdoor trips as well as groups in Vietnam and Nepal.  When not teaching or moving snow, I enjoy time with my kids (ages 12 and 16)  in the outdoor playground of the Sierra.

Hien Nguyen Larson, Co-Owner
Hien is the Principal at Alder Creek Middle School in Truckee. When not being educator extraordinaire, she is devoted to raising our two children with all the great activities Truckee has to offer.  Hien is the creative and marketing brains behind our family business(es).

Larson Snow Removal in Tahoe Donner Machine PictureWe own two HOLDER tractors (a main and a backup) with WESTA snowblowers.  If you are concerned that this equipment will not handle our large snow loads in upper Tahoe Donner, please be assured that this is the same equipment used in Soda Springs, Alpine Meadows, and other areas with huge snow loads. We have a great relationship with the sales rep at Donner Pass Truck and Tractor. He always has us up and running quickly after a breakdown, so you don’t need to worry about breakdowns causing you to be stuck for days.
