Tahoe Welcomes Two Feet of Fresh Snow

World-Class Competitions, Family-Friendly Events and Party Atmosphere Await Spring Destination Travelers
Lake Tahoe, CA & NV (March 8, 2013) - Lake Tahoe ski resorts are boasting some of the best conditions of the season thanks to nearly two feet of fresh snow that has blanketed the slopes with light, dry powder. Already sitting on impressive summit base depths of over 100 inches, this latest round of storms has resulted in season snowfall totals cresting the 300 inch mark at many of the resorts with nearly a third of the winter season still ahead including the historically snowy month of March. With an impressive calendar of springtime events and competitions now on the horizon, Lake Tahoe is the obvious choice for destination travelers in need of a late season powder fix coupled with non-stop action once the lifts stop turning.
The forecast is calling for a break in the storm this weekend bringing sunny skies and moderate temperatures followed by an unsettled weather pattern continuing to freshen up the slopes throughout the first half of March. This perfect blend of big snowstorms followed by predictably sunny skies will provide the opportunity for skiers and snowboarders to sneak in many more bluebird powder days this season, especially given the fact that Lake Tahoe resorts at times remain open as late as the Fourth of July.


The timing of this latest round of storms could not be better as the region prepares to host The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series at Northstar California this weekend, the US Alpine Championships at Squaw Valley March 20-24 and the US Freestyle Championships at Heavenly Mountain Resort March 29-31. These spectator-friendly competitions will feature world-class athletes showcasing their skills prior to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi with the cobalt blue waters of Lake Tahoe itself serving as a perfect backdrop.


In addition to these premier competitions, Lake Tahoe resorts will be hosting numerous springtime parties and family-friendly festivals both on and off the slopes. The region is known for its legendary spring skiing scene that combines incredible skiing and snowboarding conditions with an unparalleled variety of 24/7 nightlife and entertainment including free concerts, daily après ski parties, costumed competitions and the ever-popular pond-skimming contests. For a complete rundown of springtime events, please feel free to peruse the Event Calendar and Lake Tahoe Chatter pages on www.SkiLakeTahoe.com.
