While skiing and riding are our favorite activities in spring, the longer (and warmer) days allow us to enjoy other activities after making some turns. Luckily for us, we are situated in one of the most outdoor-oriented communities around Lake Tahoe, and that means you can ski AND do other activities all in one day! These are our favorite pastimes we recommend you squeeze in before or after hitting the slopes:
It’s official – we’ve reached the 700″ mark for snowfall this season! That’s right, you read that correctly – 700 INCHES of snow have blanketed our mountain since the start of the season. For context, our average seasonal snowfall is a whopping 400 inches. Can you believe it? We certainly can’t, but we’re not complaining. And the best part? There are many days of epic skiing and riding still ahead of us, as we’ll be keeping our lifts spinning all the way through the 4th of July!
We received 191 inches of snow in March, bringing our season total to 692 inches. That’s 173% of our annual season average of 400 inches! This is the 3rd largest March snowfall we’ve seen in the last 22 years.

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!
