After a small but exciting refresh of snow this week, we will be opening again on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for skiing and snowboarding. It will feel like spring out there, so get those boards and skis waxed, and come in costume: This weekend is Rodeo-themed. Our hours are still 9am-4pm, though that could change as soon as next week.
Thanks to more than seven feet of snow in April, we are announcing yet another season extension. Palisades Tahoe will once again have Lake Tahoe’s longest winter season, with a new projected closing date of May 30th, 2022. After this week, we will be moving to weekends only — that’s Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only until Memorial Day Weekend, at which time we will also operate on Monday.
We did not expect to be saying this after a drier-than-average season, but we are just a few inches shy of setting a snowfall record for April. With this snow has come a unique set of challenges, especially in this last storm cycle. This blog focuses on what to expect for Saturday, Sunday, and beyond.
UPDATE: 11:18am Friday, April 22 Shirley is off mechanical hold and is open. UPDATE: 11:01am Friday, April 22 Gold Coast is now open again. UPDATE: …
Who needs Miracle March with an April like this? A few weeks ago, we were getting ready to wrap up winter operations. Now we have more snow than sunny days ahead in the forecast. If the snowfall keeps up like this, we think we’ll be able to extend our closing date past May 1st!
Fresh snow is always good, and if we get enough, we will be able to extend the life of several lifts and runs. That said, please understand that these spring storms are not the equivalent of the snowfall we saw in the early season.
The snow is melting rapidly, so lift closures are ahead — but don’t put those skis away just yet! We still have Snow Golf, Cushing Crossing and the FREE Spring Tracks concert with G. Love & DJ Logic coming up. Plus, you can enjoy fun spring on-mountain ski activities like the wiggles on Shirley or terrain park features on Gold Coast & Belmont.
