After a slow, some would say miserly, start, snow has begun to fall again over the Sierra in the Tahoe region. From Pollock Pines to Mt. Rose, and over on the SR 88 corridor, snow is predicted for the next several days. More is expected next week. Keep up with the snow predictions at Tahoe Snow.  For daily ski resort information, Curtis Fong, “That guy from Tahoe” , runs a comprehensive site that covers all of them. Bike and Ski Tahoe is the site. Check out Joyce Coker’s Hope Valley Outdoors for backcountry ski lessons and rental.

Today, March 14, 2018, Jessica VanPernis of JVP Communications in Tahoe said that “Homewood Mountain Resort is offering incredible mid-winter snow conditions, affordable lift access (starting at $49 per person), and spring events including the upcoming Beer & Gear Festival (March 17). More snow is in the forecast this week, and now’s the time to make plans to get on the hill for some spring skiing and riding!”

From Liesl Hepburn, Public Relations Director Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows: “Twelve inches of new snow fell overnight at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows and it’s still snowing! The National Weather Service is calling for up to 50 more inches by the end of the week, making for a powder-filled weekend at Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows.”

Thea Hard, Sierra-at-Tahoe PR, posted this about season passes: “ Sierra-at-Tahoe announces the Certified Unserious Season Pass for only $349. Guests get access to unlimited days during the 2018/19 Winter Season as well as the remainder of the current season. Each 2018/19 Certified Unserious Unlimited Season Pass is loaded with benefits including four $50 Buddy Tickets, Free Fridays (on select Fridays) and three days of free skiing at every other Powder Alliance resort; available for use in the 2018/19 winter season.”

Spring is just around the corner. Get out there and enjoy this new round of wonderful snow. Alpine, Nordic, snowshoe, just hopping around in the snow, the time is now.
