Mother Nature kicked off December right with fresh snow at Squaw Valley on December 3, 2013 — though not a large storm it was just another reminder that winter is here! Time to do your snow dances for an epic year like the winter of 2010/11!
Check out our photos from the storm here!
With really cold temperatures (we’re talking in the negatives!) Squaw did a great job of blowing about 18-24 inches of snow for its base. Talk about cold winter riding out there this week.
Squaw Valley’s High Camp webcam is also a highlight, where you can watch the daylight take shape at 8,200 feet and get powder stoke from your desk chair. Our favorite is watching the sunset over Squaw: here are a couple snippets from tonight’s winter sunset before the storm!
As of tonight (December 7) a winter storm warning is in effect until tomorrow morning at 10am PST. The area should receive 1-2 feet of new snowfall. Did someone say powder day? Get ready for more photos coming your way!
If you haven’t purchased your Tahoe Super Pass yet, you have until December 15 to save before prices go up on December 16!
We all know about Black Friday. In fact, some people line up to catch those coveted holiday sales Thanksgiving evening. It’s a retail frenzy. But fairly new to the scene is Small Business Saturday®, which bodes well for both Lake Tahoe business owners and visitors alike. Instead of long lines at corporate retailers on Black Friday, Saturday, November 30, is dedicated to the boutiques, eateries and local businesses that deserve your patronage.
So go ahead, sleep in on Friday. Come check out the plethora of sales going on around North Lake Tahoe on Saturday! We recommend perusing the Village at Squaw, taking a stroll through downtown Tahoe City, and Commercial Row in Historic Downtown Truckee.
To sweeten the pot, Tahoe City has a SHOP LOCAL holiday contest running from November 29 thru January 10, where you receive one sticker for every $25 spent at participating Tahoe City retailers. Four stickers allows your entry into a raffle prize drawing!
