It happens to the best of us: You’re out skiing or snowboarding when you suddenly catch an edge, and it wipes you out. You immediately think: I’m so glad I’m wearing my helmet! We’re glad when you wear your helmet, too. It is important to practice good safety measures on our mountains, so to celebrate NSAA’s Ski Safety Month, we’re sharing a few safety tips for having a fun, seamless time enjoying Palisades Tahoe. Plus: We have safety-related events going on such patrol dog demonstrations and beacon practice with Alpenglow Expeditions!
The groomers were where it was at as we took advantage of the soft, spring-like conditions, which had people skiing in t-shirts. The forecast is good, though, with the potential for up to 20″ of fresh snow over the weekend.
It was overcast today, with the sun peeking through the clouds from time to time. We came to Palisades Tahoe in the afternoon, met our friends, and hopped on Funitel to get a few laps on the Gold Coast. The snow was pretty good, with very few firm patches due to the traffic. There are several intermediate runs open there. The Gold Coast Face trail was skied nicely, maybe a bit crowded. The park seemed closed today – we noticed several freestyle snowboarders shredding pretty fast along the run.
