Up to 41 inches of new snow at Lake Tahoe!

One of the unique aspects of Lake Tahoe is that storms coming off the Pacific deliver big time, and storms are measured in feet, and not inches.
Mother Nature delivered over the weekend. A series of storms systems left the Lake Tahoe ski resorts with 15-41 inches of new snow (or 1 – 3.4 FEET), setting the resorts up nicely for the President’s Day holiday.

Five Feet of New Snow in a Week – No Joke!

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).

March snowstorms dump nearly 4 feet of snow

Old Man Winter decided to pay Lake Tahoe a visit last week, bringing with him nearly four feet of new snow! As a result, conditions at the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts are currently awesome. The good news is that he’s sticking around. More snow is in the forecast tonight, which means we’ll be starting off April with a powder day (or two). No joke!

Powder Days Are Here Again - 2014 Style

Winter ain’t over yet! Tahoe skiers and snowboarders woke to a winter wonderland this morning, with the ski resorts reporting 6-16 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, and it's still snowing! This is the first of three storms forecast to hit the Sierra through the weekend.  Can you say powder turns?

New Snow at Sugar Bowl November 2013

Giving Thanks at Sugar Bowl

One of my favorite traditions of the Thanksgiving holiday festivities is when everyone at the table takes a couple quick minutes to tell everyone else at the table what it is they’re thankful for and why.

October powder turns at Sugar Bowl Resort

Winter Returns to Sugar Bowl Resort

One of the many things I love about Tahoe is just how fast one season ends as another begins. This past weekend we all enjoyed summer-like temps on Friday and Saturday, a blustery autumn day on Sunday, and then full-on winter come Monday. Mountain biking one day, powder skiing the next.

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!
