This week Lake Tahoe finally received one of the epic storms that results in snow days, road closures and lots of snow shoveling. With 3-4 feet in a 24 hour period, and a storm total of around 8 feet, it’s been a huge boon for the ski resorts, tourism industry and water supply. I’m pretty sure lots of locals called in sick yesterday, based upon the enormous crowd at the base of Heavenly’s Gunbarrel chairlift. While I did pack my camera yesterday, I didn’t take many photos, as I was too busy skiing the 3 feet of new snow. A few are below.
We’re off to Mammoth tomorrow for a family ski trip. Heard that mountain got some snow too, so it should be a continuation of this week’s fun.
