Lake Tahoe (and all of California) saw a historical record snowfall this year. Our prayers to the snow gods were answered. In December, North Lake Tahoe was a positive winter wonderland. Endless sheets and blankets of fresh, powdery snow covered every surface. Long, glimmering icicles dripped from every rooftop. The locals and tourists alike were bright-eyed, red-faced and shoveling for our lives. The northern shore of Lake Tahoe spanning California and Nevada saw over 17 FEET OF SNOW in December alone. We rejoice as the drought is over and the ski runs beckon!
Despite a dry few weeks since then, now is the absolute best time to come visit Lake Tahoe. Spring skiing has come early! Cold temperatures atop the mountain peaks are keeping the snow loose and powdery, while blue skies and sunny days create unbeatable conditions!
Every single mountain is fully open: Northstar California, Palisades (formerly Squaw/Alpine), Mount Rose, Heavenly, Kirkwood, Homewood, Sierra, Tahoe Donner, Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Diamond Peak to name a few of our favorites are boasting their best conditions in recent memory. They’ll all see record long seasons in terms of their ability to stay open for tourists to come enjoy Northern Lake Tahoe’s versatile range of outdoor activities.
As always, Tahoe Lake Love is looking to the summer, excited that the lake level is no longer jeopardizingly low and we can use our favorite piers and beaches again for captained boat charters in Lake Tahoe for Summer 2022. In the meantime, don’t miss this historic and jaw-droppingly gorgeous snow. Book a vacation rental and outdoor adventure tour today!
