South Lake Tahoe’s New Year Resolution: More Powder Days – Ski Resorts Anticipate 1-2 Feet of Snow First Weekend in January
Jan. 4, 2019 (SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif./Nev.) – Tahoe South area ski resorts anticipate 1-2 feet the first weekend of the new year and up to a foot at lake level. A winter storm watch will be in effect from 4 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5 until 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 6. (http://tahoesouth.com/).
“We’re still celebrating,” said Carol Chaplin, president, and CEO of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority. “On the heels of another banner holiday season, the forecast has South Shore starting 2019 with fresh snow.”
January is National Learn To Ski/Snowboard Month and individuals with resolutions to try a new sport can partake with Sierra-at-Tahoe’s First Timer package – a 2.5-hour lesson, lift ticket and equipment starting at $175. On-demand lessons for the more spontaneous skier/rider are available at Heavenly. For avid skiers looking to fine-tune skills, Expedition Kirkwood offers a variety of clinics and backcountry courses.
CARE TO GO CAR-LESS
Travel in the snow can be stress-free when visitors choose to go car-free this winter. Non-stop air service into Reno/Tahoe International Airport has made a winter getaway to Tahoe even more convenient with 130 daily flights from destinations including San Francisco, San Jose, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Austin, Carlsbad, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Denver, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Seattle among others. (www.renoairport.com)
From the airport’s baggage claim, South Tahoe Airporter offers round-trip motor coach service directly to South Shore major hotels providing travelers with a car-free vacation. (http://southtahoeairporter.com)
Those traveling with ski and snowboard equipment can also utilize UberSKI, now operating in the South Shore area. UberSKI allows riders to request vehicles equipped with a ski rack or truck bed for convenient transportation.
During snowfall, a fleet of city and state snow removal vehicles work around the Lake Tahoe Basin to keep roads clear and safe for travel. Check Caltrans www.dot.ca.gov and Nevada Department of Transportation http://nvroads.com and www.tahoeroads.com for current road conditions, including temporary closures.
