It’s true. March came in like a lion, and left like a lion, leaving five feet of fresh snow at the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts. This latest round of powerful Pacific storms has resulted in the deepest powder conditions of the season. There is plenty of skiing and snowboarding still ahead as the majority of the resorts plan to remain open through Easter weekend, with some even aiming to remain open into the month of May (conditions permitting).

With base depths hovering around the 100-inch mark, the Lake Tahoe ski resorts are currently boasting plenty of fresh powder, miles of groomed corduroy, progressive terrain park features and manicured halfpipes . Forecasters are calling for continued snow showers through the end of the week followed by a pleasant combination of sunny skies and moderate temperatures as the weekend approaches - all the ingredients for an unforgettable, bluebird powder day.

Skiers and snowboarders in the know can advantage of unbeatable Tahoe springtime deals and packages including stay-and-ski packages starting as low as $59 per person. Ski and ride free the remainder of this season at the majority of the resorts with the purchase of next year's season pass. Check out the deals page for the full scoop.

If scoring a great deal isn’t enough, how does a calendar chock full of special events and springtime festivities sound? April is full of ski resort happenings, ranging from free slope-side concerts to the classic pond skimming competitions. Lake Tahoe’ spring skiing scene is known for its palpable party atmosphere complete with live music, bikini-clad revelers, outrageous costumes and invigorating Sierra sunshine. See the full listing on the calendar page.

And hope to see you out there!
