Let It Snow!

March 1, 2011

We are pleased to announce February has proved to be another great month for snowfall! With over 14 feet of new snow that fell during the month, Lake Tahoe is well above average for the year. Heavenly has a base of 341” so far this year!

La Niña is having a big effect on what the weather does this season. “La Niña is in place and will strengthen and persist through the winter months, giving us a better understanding of what to expect between December and February,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of the Climate Prediction Center. Even though La Niña results are more difficult to accurately forecast, La Niña winters seem to bring more rain and snow than usual.

Could Lake Tahoe expect another March miracle this year? We are hoping so! Come up and enjoy the fresh snow and the beautiful views of Lake Tahoe.
