Lake Tahoe’s First Big Storm For 2015/16 Ski Season

Fall snow at Squaw Valley Lodge

Earlier this week fall quickly faded into winter, as over a foot of snow fell at Squaw Valley. It was a beautiful way to kick off November, blanketing the mountain in fresh powder. With the California drought and lower snow levels from the past four years, it was a hefty storm for fall, and a pleasant surprise for the area.

Since we received so much snow on Monday, November 2, Mt. Rose Ski Resort opened for the season on Wednesday (November 4) as the first ski resort open in the Tahoe basin, and Boreal Mountain Resort opened today as the first ski resort open for the season in California! The colder temperatures this week also meant Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows was able to get in tons of snow making. Squaw Alpine is still slated to open Wednesday, November 25 in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

There are two things we do need to point out considering the early snowfall: 1. If you don’t have your Tahoe Super Pass yet, you’re blowing it big time and need to purchase one stat. You can do that HERE. 2. If you haven’t booked your winter ski getaway, you need to do that stat. And also take advantage of our insanely good fall rates we have going on right now. You can still ski/ride in the area if you stay with us, and also take advantage of everything happening at The Village at Squaw.

October Snow At Squaw Valley!

Squaw Snow 2014

Our favorite season is right around the corner, and winter paid us a quick visit this weekend to keep us on our toes. Waking up to fresh snow at Squaw Valley on an October morning is something dreams are made of. Except dreams of fluffy white mornings on KT will soon become a reality as winter slowly rounds the corner.  Mother Nature dusted Squaw Valley’s upper mountain almost to say, “Get ready for powder: I’m coming.”  And coming it is–next week’s forecast calls for snow, so stay tuned for more autumn white!

Once fall descends on the Lake Tahoe region it’s only a matter of time before the first snow of the season blankets Squaw Valley. As you prepare for another winter–pulling out your gear, perusing a ski swap or two, waxing your fat skis for powder days–we’d like to remind you of one gloriously good piece of news …

That means you could be skiing at Squaw Valley less than 40 days from now. Of course we make no guarantees for what Mother Nature will do between now and November 26th. Please note it’s likely there will be a limited amount of lifts open (lower versus upper mountain). If you don’t have your Tahoe Super Pass, it’s time to get on the ball and save while you can! Prices increase after October 21, 2014. If you plan on getting on the slopes even a couple times this winter, the Tahoe Super Pass will pay off big time for you and your family.

Purchase your Tahoe Super Pass here, and while you’re at it, check out our deals for winter lodging at Squaw Valley Lodge!
