January & February were some of the wettest months on record for much of the west, which means that March has a lot to live up to. As we begin this month, there are currently 11 North American ski resorts with 500+” of snowfall on the season. These totals are only going to increase over the net few days as storms are currently hitting the PNW and they will work their way into Tahoe throughout the weekend. This winter has been incredible and its safe to say we will be skiing on the 4th of July this year.
