Photo Gallery: The Great Dig Out at Palisades

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!

Parking & Traffic: How We’re Addressing & How We Can Work Together

We realize that traffic throughout North Lake Tahoe is a problem – especially during big winters like this one when snow conditions are amazing (and on repeat!). Although the traffic situation isn’t new, it has increased in recent years. We want to be part of the solution, and we hope that you do, too. After all, we’re more effective when we work together. It’s up to all of us – our community, our guests, and our employees – to make use of the services that are already available to help alleviate traffic congestion until longer-term solutions are implemented.

Operations Blog: Building the Silverado Access Road

Silverado may be the most coveted terrain at Palisades Tahoe. Spanning a square mile and lined with iconic shoots and steeps that only the most advanced skiers and snowboarders can hit, it’s no secret that prepping this area for opening is a huge task. After a big snowfall, you might assume that Ski Patrol is the first to head back into this area, but in fact, it is a snowcat that plows through first — literally.

Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup Weekend Recap

Last weekend, against all odds, the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup (a stop on the Audi FIS Ski World Cup tour) took place in Olympic Valley. It was a nail-biter as record-breaking snow pummeled the region. Like magic, there was a 36-hour break in extreme winter weather in which the race was able to occur. The break in the weather wasn’t the only thing that made this event possible, though. The real story here is the incredible work of our operations teams, who were on the hill around-the-clock slipping and clearing the racecourse until the final moments before the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup kicked off. Let’s look back at their heroic work, as well as the weekend’s events.

Tahoe Region Recovers From Winter Storm Olive

The Tahoe region just experienced a blizzard that buried the area in over 100 inches of snow in just a few days. There are major snow-related challenges impacting our entire community and everyone is focused on clearing snow, getting back open and getting ready for the next major storm arriving this weekend. We want you to be aware of what the reality of the current situation is, what to expect, and how to be prepared before traveling here.
