Recent Storms Open Additional Chairlifts and Terrain, More on the Horizon
Lake Tahoe, CA & NV (January 31, 2014) – Skiers and snowboarders are rejoicing in the Northern Sierra thanks to a powerful Pacific storm that blanketed the slopes in Lake Tahoe with nearly two feet of fresh snow. Forecasts are calling for additional accumulations throughout the weekend with another strong low pressure system tracking toward the region late next week ensuring powdery conditions heading into the month of February.
The recent snowfall has also allowed resort operators to open additional chairlifts and terrain including numerous trails for advanced and expert riders. The nine Ski Lake Tahoe resorts are now boasting an impressive variety of open terrain with options for every ability level – sculpted terrain for beginners, ready-to-carve corduroy for intermediates and deep powder for experts, as well as award-winning terrain parks and halfpipes for the freestyle-minded.
This latest storm is perfectly timed to freshen up the slopes in advance of numerous special events, signature competitions and high-energy après ski parties slated to take place at Lake Tahoe ski resorts during the month of February. For a full listing of upcoming events, please visit the Event Calendar or Lake Tahoe Chatter pages on SkiLakeTahoe.com.
