If any proof were needed that winter 20/21 was a dry one, then look no further than the map above. The snowpack in the Lake Tahoe region is now at 0% of the average.

Currently, just Squaw Valley and Mammoth are open for resort skiing, and Squaw closes this weekend. Mammoth intends to stay open through May 31st… let’s hope conditions allow.

Squaw Valley only just managed to reach the 300″ mark this season, reporting 306″ of snowfall for the season. The Lake Tahoe resort averages 400″, and in recent years has reported 719″ in 2018/19, 728″ 2016/17, and 810″ 2010/11.

Similarly, Mammoth has received 294″ this season.
