Biggest Nothern California Storm In 6 Years

In the last week Mother Nature dumped 25 inches on Squaw Valley, and she’s not ready to let up!

A huge storm will hit Northern California Wednesday evening, significantly impacting the Sacramento Valley, with possibly 3-5 inches of rainfall and fierce winds up to 60 MPH. Locals and emergency services are preparing for power outages, flooding, stalled vehicles, and mudslides, etc. Though not ideal conditions for residents, the upside to the monster storm is more powder in the North Lake Tahoe area!

With varying levels from different forecast models, we could very well see 1-2 feet above 7,000 feet and 6-12 inches at lake level. We’ll keep you updated as the storm rolls in–of course those powder totals could vary come Friday. The bigger the better! The deeper the snow, the better skiing and snowboarding for the whole family.


With such a great start to winter (late fall, really) you still have time tonight to book your stay at Squaw Valley Lodge and save 50%! Squaw Valley Lodge is offering a 50% discount off nightly rate through December 20, 2014.  Reservations must be made by December 8th.
