It saddens me to write this post. Writing this means that Tahoe’s ski season is coming to a close. It’s closing a bit earlier than usual due to one of the driest winters on record. A few resorts are already gone. We’d heard that even Squaw was going to close by April 21st, but now it appears they’ll hold on until April 28th. Not bad considering the season we’ve had; not great considering Squaw used to stay open until the end of May.
You’ll definitely wanna come up and ski Tahoe this weekend. Many of our resorts will be closing this Sunday.

Despite the dryness of the winter, it was still a fun one. No shortage of spring skiing. In the last two years, we’ve gotten our fill of spring skiing. Let’s do a big one next year mama nature.
“At last the lake burst upon us–a noble sheet of blue water lifted six thousand three hundred feet above the level of the sea, and walled in by a rim of snow-clad mountain peaks that towered aloft three thousand feet higher still! As it lay there with the shadows of the mountains brilliantly photographed upon its still surface, I thought it must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords.” – Mark Twain on Lake Tahoe
