After what could optimistically be described as a disappointing ski season last year, it appears that Mother Nature is trying to win back Lake Tahoe’s affections. She succeeded in December, with a series of big storms that left up to 94 inches of snow before and after Christmas. The ski resorts couldn’t be happier, and frankly, neither could I.
The timing has been awesome, allowing the Tahoe South ski resorts to open up all of their terrain by the holidays. The second snowiest Christmas holiday on record made for fantastic conditions and a very memorable end to 2012.
While the snow volume appears to be slowing down for now, cold temperatures are forecast for next week, ensuring great mid-winter snow conditions will stick around. At least until the next storm shows up.

Jenn is a marketing consultant to the travel & tourism industries, but she prefers to play outside as much as possible. She lives at Lake Tahoe in order to do just that. When she isn’t skiing, hiking, mountain biking, running after her dog or enjoying the majesty of the Sierra, she’s thinking about them and planning her next adventure.
