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.

Last year we had a weaker snow season overall in the greater Reno-Tahoe area, but Mt. Rose still had 324 inches of snow which allowed its skiers to carve and glide down its 1,200 acres from October to the end of April. During the

Divided between California and Nevada is Lake Tahoe, or as the indigenous Washoe Indians called it “The Lake of the Sky”. Whatever activities you’re into, the area holds adventure every day of the year. With the dozens of world-class resorts, terrain parks and backcountry for skiing, snowboarding and other snow bunny fun, winter is just a starting point for adventure-seekers.

She is the country’s most decorated female Olympian alpine skier and used to pass the Olympic rings that adorn the ski area entrance every other day on

Lake Tahoe got so much snow, people are talking about skiing all summer into next season.

Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley, has proposed that the resort stay open through the Fourth of July weekend – if not all the way into the 2017-18 winter season. After the most snow in more than 20 years, some of the Lake’s ski resorts saw more 700 inches of snowfall.

“I’ll drop something on you that you may not be expecting,” Wirth told Truckee Tahoe Radio on April 15. “We are actually considering staying open through the summer and fall so it becomes the ’16-17-18 season. We’re taking a hard look at that. Maybe we spin Shirley [a lift on the mountain’s back side] through the summer, ‘cause there’s so much snow up there.”

Lake Tahoe received seven feet of snow in just seven days.

Heavenly Ski Resort and Squaw-Alpine Meadows both received over 80 inches in the seven days totals that began on Valentine’s Day. The winter snow total for Heavenly is now approaching 550 inches.

Vail Resorts announced on February 22 in a press release that both Heavenly and Northstar will be extending their scheduled closing days by at least a week this year. The resorts will close April 30.

Other resorts in the area are even more ambitious. Squaw-Alpine plans to stay open until the Fourth of July this year. The large resort has seen some 565 inches of total snowfall this season – that’s over 47 feet.

“In 2017 alone, since January 1, we’ve had 460 inches,” said Sam Kieckhefer, a
