Big Snow Storms and Big Savings at Squaw Valley Lodge!

Can we talk about the weather? Because it’s DUMPING snow at Squaw.

February is rounding out to be very wintery and full of fresh tracks.

In true Tahoe fashion, it looks like we’re headed for another Miracle March. If you want to learn all about Tahoe’s history with Miracle March read this about the 1991 March that saved Tahoe from a disastrous ski season after one of the worst droughts in California history. The Tahoe basin saw 240 inches of snow in March! So don’t you put away those skis yet.

Today’s storm could bring up to 15 inches. And then we’ll see a break in the storms for a perfect powder day tomorrow (Tuesday). Winds pick up on Wednesday for a huge storm rolling through until Friday.

Forecasters are calling for 2-4 FEET by Friday! This could be you:
