The storm door opened over the last two days, and we were once again graced with a fresh coating of that wonderful white stuff we call snow.
From about the 4,000 foot level, up to the mountain peaks, snow fell. At the lower elevations not much accumulated. At the higher elevations, between 1 and 2 feet drifted out of the clouds.
Squaw Valley's Amelia Richmond is smiling at the 21" "...and counting" that has dropped from this recent storm.
Jenny Kendrick of neighboring Alpine Meadows loves the 16" to 20" of fresh powder, which is still falling, that has coated the resort.
Northstar's 88 runs have similar totals to grin about: 10" to 19" of highly skiable and memory making powder.
All of the resorts in the Tahoe area have about the same results out of this continuing storm. The weather guessers are saying that it just may keep up throughout the night, making Saturday, March 9, a particularly agreeable day to hit the slopes. Blue skies, a little breezy, on fresh powder is hard to ignore.
Winter is winding down. The first day of spring is right around the corner. March 20th will mark the departure of winter and the arrival of spring.
Everyone who enjoys snow sports would be very pleased if the rest of March managed to dump a lot more snow on the mountains.
