For this drought stricken region it brings joy, not just to the ski fanatics, but to the land itself. The Lake Tahoe Basin is sitting at 200% of average snow water equivalent for this time of the year - incredible!
So, if you are new to Tahoe, a second home owner, a constant traveler to the area or looking to become a permanent resident to the region you might be a little confused on how to best prepare for the big winters we can have.
Recent storms have caused closures and delays at local ski resorts as mountain operations crews worked to dig out. The best way to navigate and prepare in this Winter Wonderland Tahoe provides is by following the locals who know it best and who will keep you up to date by the minute.
