Golden States Turns White

_DSC2931Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows in North Lake Tahoe have received the first significant snowfall of the 2013-14 winter season. Overnight, Alpine Meadows received 10 inches of snow at the base and 14 inches on upper mountain.

Squaw received 5 inches of snow at the base and 10 inches on upper mountain. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is forecasting an additional 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible by tomorrow morning.

The new snow comes almost exactly a month before the scheduled opening day at Squaw Valley. Squaw Valley is slated to open Wednesday, November 27. Alpine Meadows is scheduled to open Friday, December 13.

_DSC2918Ski resorts in South Lake Tahoe didn’t miss out on the action either, receiving between 3-5 inches at lake level. Millions of capital expenditures at the three area ski resorts this year – including a new zip line at Heavenly Mountain Resort, on-mountain plaza at Sierra-at-Tahoe, and high-end accommodations – will complement revitalization efforts throughout town to create new options on where to stay, play and dine during the 2013-14 season.

Skiers and riders looking to take full advantage of this season’s snowfall should purchase their Squaw and Alpine season pass now.  The Tahoe Super Pass starts at US$519 for adults, and offers season-long access to 6,000 acres, 43 lifts and over 270 trails at both resorts. Current prices for the Tahoe Super Pass are guaranteed through December 1. For more information on pricing, or to purchase a season pass, visit
