SnowBrains | | Industry NewsIndustry News

What wet, wild winter that was for Northern California! Palisades Tahoe smashed snowfall records last season and kept lifts spinning on the Alpine Meadows side of the resort well into July to end a truly historic winter. The resort shared on its blog the following recap of the Winter of 2022-23′:

That’s a wrap on the incredible 2022/23 winter season. After an unbelievable 723 inches of snowfall and skiing that lasted into the month of July, it feels surreal to finally be saying goodbye to one of the most historic and memorable seasons we’ve ever had. The huge amount of snowfall (our season average is only 400 inches!) made for some extreme working conditions, but our teams persevered through every obstacle: digging out their own homes, driving in treacherous conditions, and working throughout every blizzard to keep these mountains open. We are ALL excited to have a few months of sun, and a break from digging out.

To you, our guests, we couldn’t be more grateful for the time you spent with us this season. For your patience on the difficult days. For the excitement you shared with us through the endless snowfall and some of the best powder days EVER. We cannot wait to do it all again with you next season.

To celebrate, let’s take a look at the highlights of this unforgettable year.
