The much needed storm that came in Wednesday night dropped more than a foot of fresh snow at some Lake Tahoe ski resorts. It will make for a happy Super Bowl weekend in Tahoe for skiers and snowboarders.

On Tahoe’s north shore, both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows received 10 inches of fresh snow by early afternoon Thursday, but received no more overnight.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is forecasting that a smaller system could also move through the Sierra Nevada on Sunday, bringing more snow to the Tahoe region

Both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are currently open with 17 lifts across both resorts. In addition to skiing and snowboarding on the fresh snow, guests can also enjoy snowtubing, mini-snowmobiles, shopping and dining in The Village at Squaw Valley.

Squaw’s Wanderlust Yoga Studio also offers a full schedule of 19 yoga classes per week, and is open seven days a week.

Skiers and riders looking to take full advantage of the fresh snow can purchase the Tahoe Super 2, which will only be offered through 6 p.m. (PST) today (Jan. 31).
