Actually, winter came back to Tahoe last week, and has stuck around a bit longer this time. Today was the first proper bluebird sunshine day we’ve had in nearly a week, and I’m guessing a ton of people called in sick today to ski. I prefer storm days for the relative lack of crowds (and free refills) so I hit Sierra-at-Tahoe yesterday morning to ‘product test’ the 10 or so inches of new snow. It, like many of the Tahoe ski resorts, saw 5 feet of new snow over the past 7 days.
I’ve learned that it’s essential to make the most of the snow when it comes because it’s never guaranteed when the next storm will be.
However in this case there is more snow forecast for this weekend, so I’ll be keeping my phat boards in easy reach.
