Snowsport enthusiasts are patiently waiting for the powder to fall on Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts. Here’s all that’s new for the 2018/2019 season.

Believe it or not, ski season has begun in the Tahoe region and the hopes for another long and strong winter are high. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe opened limited terrain the weekend of October 19 for season-pass holders and plans to reopen to the public this weekend (October 26) with limited terrain. Mt. Rose is usually the first to open due to its area-high base elevation of 8,260 feet.

The Taylor Creek Visitor Center is the place to be this weekend to see the kokanee salmon make their way upstream for spawning.

The Fall Fish Festival returns on October 6 – 7 from 10a.m. to 4 p.m. each day and all of the salmon have turned bright red just in time.
