Melissa Brouse, PR at Squaw Valley, said in a January 30 press release just a bit ago, that Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows have recived 10 inches of new snow. The best part? More is expected over night.
Some are predicting that this nice storm will drop 2 feet of new snow on the area. It's been a long while since that has happened.
Brouse was happy to add: "...both received 10 inches of fresh snow by early afternoon Thursday, with an additional 10 inches expected by Friday morning, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
NOAA is forecasting snow showers to continue throughout the day Thursday, with a second wave of snowfall rotating in Thursday night that could bring heavier snowfall. A smaller system could also move through the Sierra Nevada on Sunday, bringing more snow to Squaw and Alpine this weekend."
All of the resorts in the Tahoe area are gleefully reporting snow totals of about a foot, according to Connie Anderson of the Abbi Agency, located in Reno, Nevada. She said that the totals are adding up and is looking forward to sending out snow total information tomorrow.
Skiers and riders at Squaw and Alpine should consider getting the Tahoe Super 2. The deal, offered until January 31, is a great package.
"When purchased three days in advance, the Super 2 is available for $119 for adults (less than $60 a day), $101 for young adults and seniors (less than $51 a day), and $67 for kids and those ages 76 and up (less than $34 a day). The Tahoe Super 2 is the best way to save on skiing and riding at Squaw and Alpine. Tickets must be used by Feb. 14."
With good, fresh powder gracing the slopes, this kind of offer simply makes it even more fun to spend the day making your turns.
