Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts Get Much Needed Snow
A series of storms that moved through the popular Lake Tahoe Ski Vacation Region in mid January has brought long awaited significant snowfall to the areas ski resorts.
This season Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts have experienced unusually low snowfall to this point, with most relying on snow machines to make the snow to allow them to operate. The recent snowfall deposited upwards of two feet of fresh powder which was welcomed by resort operators, who were happy to see Mother Nature help return the slopes to more natural conditions. Several runs were unable to be opened because of the snow shortfall, yet resort operators were optimistic that the recent snowfall would allow the mothballed runs to be opened for business as usual.
The gift from the skies came less than a week after a group of Paiute, Shoshone and Washoe tribal members performed a traditional Native American ceremony seeking spiritual help to bring snow to the Sierra. A crowd of participants estimated in excess of 200 people took part in the January 15th exercise at Homewood on Lake Tahoe’s western shore.
A similar Native American ceremony conducted in Vail, Colorado recently produced an increase in much needed snowfall in that ski resort area.
As a result of the new snow on the slopes, Lake Tahoe will experience an increase in vacation and weekend getaway visitors which will create a spike in demand for rental accommodations.
