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.

I don’t know about you, but this time of year is when I start to shiver with anticipation. Winter, my season, is about to begin! Time to dig out the boards, figure out where your helmet and gloves are, and GET STOKED.
I know that you’re as excited as I am, so I’ve done the work for you, listing the latest opening dates for the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts below. Do note that all dates are subject to weather and conditions.
Keep up those snow dances, and see you out there!

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?

Snow has arrived at Lake Tahoe – big time! Over the last week, a series of storms dumped 3-8 feet of snow on the ski resorts.
This is great news on so many levels.
First – powder day!
Second – can you say winter snow conditions?
Third – many ski resorts have been able to open more terrain, which means more choice for you.
If you’ve missed the excitement, check out the videos and images below.

Winter at Lake Tahoe is truly special. Whether it’s the spectacular scenic beauty of North America’s largest alpine lake, the incredible skiing and snowboarding terrain, the perfect blend of big snowfall and West Coast sunshine, or the community of world-class athletes and individuals that live in the area, it provides wide-ranging opportunities and inspiration for those that call it home.

With the holidays winding down people are returning to the daily grind, but the fun never ends at Northstar! Every week (and nearly every day) there is something fun and new happening either on the mountain or in the Village, giving people every excuse to make it back up there as soon as possible. With the holiday crowds gone, the coming weeks might be the perfect time to take a midweek escape. Here are some of the many ongoing events happening at Northstar:

Holiday cheer fills the air in the Village at Northstar. Christmas music sets a playful tone as families skate the ice rink, take laps in a horse-drawn sleigh, admire the decorated tree and enjoy the California sunshine. It’s not often we get the chance to come together to celebrate time with family and ring in a brand new year.

Ski season is here! Mt. Rose – Ski Tahoe will open on Wednesday, Nov. 27th at 9:00 am! The recent change in weather has allowed our snowmaking crew to make snow around the clock. The Ponderosa lift will start spinning tomorrow and expansion up the Kit Carson Bowl and then to the top of the mountain will evolve as conditions permit throughout the week.

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.
