Huge Storm Brings in New Snow - Best Skiing/Snowboarding of the Season!

Submitted on 4/3/14 | by Lindsey Carlson

Spring skiing and boarding offers sunny days and, thanks to this current storm, incredible powder and perfect conditions. Most ski resorts are open through mid - April, with some staying open until the beginning of May. Mother Nature is granting us our wish, and with snow piling up as we speak this weekend is looking pretty promising for spring skiing and snowboarding.

As much as five feet of snow has already fallen in high elevation areas, which brings everyone much wanted powder - hopefully lasting through Easter weekend. The current storm is bringing in more snow, and storms are predicted to last through tomorrow, Friday April 4. Skiing/snowboarding this weekend is predicted to be some of the best this season. For ski/snowboard rentals try Heavenly Sports or Powder House in South Lake Tahoe, or Tahoe Dave’s in North Lake Tahoe.

Today’s snow report for Lake Tahoe ski resorts:
