Snow Conditions

Snow at Mt. Rose-SkiTahoe 10.28.13

Over a Foot of New Snow at Lake Tahoe!

The Lake Tahoe ski resorts have received 6-12+ inches of new snow overnight, with up to 6 inches at lake level. More snow showers are forecast today, and we hear there’s a chance for more snow over the weekend.  Can you say stoked?  

While some of us scrambled to find our snow shovels and car window scrapers, the ski resorts were ready, with many of them firing up their snowmaking systems for the season!

If you missed the excitement this morning, below are some of our favorite tweets. Got one we missed? Let us know in the comments.

Bryan Allegretto Open Snow Tahoe Weather Forecaster

Ask a Local: Bryan Allegretto

Today marks the first post in our new series, “Ask a Local”. There is no shortage of interesting folks who call Tahoe home, and we’re curious what brought them here, why they stay, and where we’re most likely to see them skiing and riding. With winter approaching, we figured we’d things off with local weather forecaster Bryan Allegretto.

First tracks at Heavenly

Winter is back

It’s true – winter has arrived, in the form of a generous storm that has gifted the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts with a LOT of snow this week! The seven ski resorts are reporting snow totals of 14-36 inches, and a few ski resorts have announced the start of snowmaking operations. If that’s not enough, Squaw Valley will be open for skiing and riding on Thursday, October 25 from 10 am – 2 pm, allowing snow-hungry skiers and riders to get their early season fix.

Heavenly first snowman 10.12.12

First snow at Lake Tahoe

Last night’s storm brought snow to the higher elevations! Our friends at Heavenly were kind enough to send us these snow photos. 

Winter is clearly back, so it's time to start thinking about planning that 2012-13 Lake Tahoe ski vacation. Got your Lake Tahoe Six-Pack tickets yet? They are still available, but not for too much longer, so don't delay.  We'd hate to hear you missed out on Lake Tahoe's best lift ticket deal. 

In the meantime, we'll keep thinking snow - and hope you do too.

As the saying goes, April showers bring fresh powder – or something like that...

Miracle March delivers over 100 inches of snow!

March is a month known for its generous storms, and is sometimes referred to as Miracle March. This year it definitely earned that title. Big storms hit Lake Tahoe last week, leaving between 50-109 inches (that's NINE FEET!) of snow at the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts!

Mt Rose Powder Snow

Up to 5 FEET of new snow at Lake Tahoe

It’s true! Mother Nature has delivered, generously dumping feetfuls of powder on the 7 Ski Lake Tahoe resorts. While it’s still snowing as of this writing, current storm totals range between 27-60 inches of new snow, or between 2-5 feet of new snow!

This is fantastic news for the ski resorts, which are opening more terrain and lifts every day. But don't take our word for it - check out the latest videos we've seen posted from the resorts this weekend!

Are You Ready for Snow?

Are you ready? Temperatures are dropping and moisture will be in the air. Sounds like we should be seeing snow above 7,000’ starting Wednesday night and some weather continuing throughout the weekend!

Mt Rose groomers

"I can't believe it’s man-made snow!"

This is what the folks are saying about conditions up at Mt. Rose! With 4 out of the 7 lifts spinning and more terrain opening regularly, people are raving about what great snow Mt. Rose has. Mt. Rose continues to open up more terrain and with cooler temperatures, Mt. Rose is able to run the snow guns practically non-stop!
