Connie Anderson, account exec at the Abbi Agency in Tahoe, shot out a press release on April 1st outlining the return of winter like weather in Lake Tahoe. Although we are into the front end of spring, this latest series of storms are decidedly mimicking winter.

Here is what she had to say:

"The storm system that promised several feet of snow in the North Lake Tahoe region this week delivered. While the calendar says it is spring, North Lake Tahoe is covered with an abundance of fresh powder.

In the past 24 hours, seven major downhill resorts in North Lake Tahoe are reporting over a foot of snow and the six-day storm totals are nearing or exceeding five feet at most resorts.

Snow Totals (24 hour/72 hour)

Alpine Meadows: 12”/28”
Boreal Mountain Resort: 20”/53”
Diamond Peak: 4”/12”
Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe: 5”/13”
Northstar California: 7”/20”
Squaw Valley: 16”/38”
Sugar Bowl Resort: 22”/25”

Resorts are ecstatic about the new snow as it is improving the already fantastic spring skiing conditions. Spring-breakers take note – it’s a perfect time to ski and ride in North Lake Tahoe.These North Lake Tahoe downhill resorts are operating chairlifts seven days a week."

Anderson says that now is the time to get out there and get your turns in. Conditions are as good as they've been all season.

"We’re still looking forward to a nice long stretch of spring skiing ahead of us here at Sugar Bowl. Temps have been low enough overnight that we’re enjoying a melt-freeze corn cycle and the skiing has been great", according to John Monson, marketing director at the historic Sugar Bowl Resort atop Donner Summit.

Considering the ups and downs of the season, having a "...nice long stretch of spring skiing..." sounds pretty good.

Sierra-at-Tahoe, Heavenly, and Kirkwood are also reporting fantastic conditions with a wonderful new blanket of snow.

On top of the uber fantastic conditions, season passes are on sale at the resorts now. Conditions are perfect, passes are on sale, and it's time to put the gear in the car and head to your favorite resort.
