Why March is the Best Month to Visit Tahoe South
Annual snowfall in South Lake Tahoe averages 125 inches. Higher elevations receive 300 to 500 inches in a season. Heavenly Ski Resort reports 524” for the 2016/2017 season as of Feb 2017. With so much snow on the slopes, ski resorts are going to stay open late. Skiing is definitely a great reason to come visit but let’s not forget there are other reasons why Tahoe South is a must visit destination in March.
Here are five good reasons to visit Tahoe South in March.
1. The best skiing in Tahoe is in March
You get to enjoy the slopes with some of the best spring skiing in the country, plenty of snow, the sunshine, and lack of crowds. Warmer temps in March create a snow condition, the locals referred to as “corn” on the slopes. Imagine little round pieces of snow that help you turn effortlessly. All lifts are still in full operation and you can sit outside on the deck for a delicious lunch in the California sunshine. Children will enjoy learning to ski in March since the temperatures are warmer and they can spend longer time on the slopes. Many ski resorts will have lots of fun events during the month of March from live music to Dummy Downhill. Make sure to check their event calendars before you plan your trip. It’s no surprise US News reports March as one of the best months to visit Tahoe South. So act like a local and visit Tahoe South in March. You won’t be disappointed.
2. No crowds
Whether you are on the slopes or just enjoying nature, you will be dealing with fewer people in March than any other month during the season. You can still go snowmobiling, ice skating, go to the spa, shop or just sit by the fireplace and read. March is a quieter month in Tahoe South so you can enjoy more solitude and less dealing with crowds wherever you go. There are no major holidays and kids don’t have school breaks so March is truly a month to consider visiting Tahoe South.
Many golf courses open in March that are only 30 min away from Tahoe South. You can even split your day in half and get some skiing in the morning and be golfing in the afternoon. These courses are down in the Carson City Valley looking back up towards the snow-capped peaks. Of course, if Tahoe doesn’t get too much snow, you could even golf locally at one of the many golf courses in Tahoe South.
4. Less expensive
Many hotels offer discounted room rates in March so you can get a great deal on accommodations, like this great Escape to the Lake package from The Landing Resort and Spa. We have lots of accommodation options to choose from based on your likes and budget. Check out all the deals we have for Tahoe South accommodations.
