  1. Well that season 2010-11 the mountain was still called Squaw, so yah record snow this season ever at PaliTaho…

  2. On track for most snow in 25 years? Did every one forget about 2010/2011? That season “palisades” claimed 810in, and alpine claimed 852in. Google “2010/2011 Lake Tahoe snowfall totals”. There’s an unofficial networks article that has all the resort totals, what’s up with that?
