Sierra Nevada Wood and Lumber

The Sierra Nevada Wood and Lumber Company (SNW&L) was a logging company that operated on the northeast side of Lake Tahoe at what is today known as Incline Village, Nevada. Incline Village was named after the incline railway that served the area. SNW&L operated an incline railway, also known as a cable railway. Timber was required for the mines during the mining boom in the late 1800s of the nearby Comstock Lode in Virginia City. The timber around Lake Tahoe was placed on the incline railway where it was taken up 1,400 feet (430 m) and then dropped by a gravity flume down the eastern side of the mountains.[3]
