The conditions today were all-time miracle March, with over a foot of fresh snow, cold temps, and a bit of sun; it was midwinter pow day mode. The mountain was ripping, from the fast, untracked chutes and steeps of KT22, to the open bowls of Broken Arrow.
Today’s conditions were an awesome Sunday Vibe at Palisades Tahoe. The snow was incredible – from pow and groomers, to side hits and lake views. Resort Chair and Red Dog were so scoring, our mountain tour stayed on lower mountain.
Today’s conditions were a total surprise delivering a mellow pow day with 3”-6” of new snow. From untracked pow turns on Olympic Lady, to the chutes in the Alternates, KT22 was a blast. And with even deeper snow on the Upper Mountain, the open bowls and trees were a pow day delight.

What a turbulent but exciting month March has been so far! The snow depth on our upper mountain is upward of 18 feet, and we are at 166% of total average snowfall. We started the first day of March off with 3 feet of snow in 24 hours. Then, after a small break in the weather, we received snow (and at some elevations rain) every day between March 5th and March 15th! Our season-to-date snowfall total is now sitting at 662 inches, or just over 55 FEET of snow. 14 of those feet have fallen in March alone!
It was nice to see the sun out today after a warm, wet storm day yesterday. Palisades Tahoe received 8” of new snow in the last 24 hours. Luckily, the temps dropped overnight into the 20s, so the top layer of snow was nice and cold over the wetter snow that fell yesterday.
Fun snow, epic springtime weather, and great vibes made St. Patty’s day at Palisades a blast today.

Today’s sunshine and minimal wind made for a fantastic day touring and spot-checking the upper mountain zones. From Siberia and Granite Chief to Broken Arrow, the conditions provided it all – fast groomers and chalky cold steeps to slushy corn off-piste and beyond filled-in terrain.
Ice, chalk, corn, slush—Palisades had all types of conditions on an absolutely beautiful spring day with nice temperatures and plenty of sunshine.

The storm turned to snow mid-day, delivering a fun pow day on the top of KT. From waking up to rain at the base at 8am and waiting to arriving at KT’s opening at 11am and ripping pow all afternoon till closing. Today’s conditions were variable and wild, from mashy smooth pow to windpack pow awesomeness. It was a great storm day riding.
