The Snow continues to fall in Tahoe City.
Yesterday the snow plows were out in full force preparing for the storm that came in last night. At lake level we have seen about about 4 inches of fresh powder and it continues to snow. Forecasters are predicting 12 to 14 inches above 7000 feet.

Sunday morning began with more fresh SNOW.
This morning I went to the Tahoe City Cross Country Ski Area, located in the Highlands near Tahoe City. There were several excited people there just waiting for the groomers to get started. The driveway had been plowed and the shop employees were setting up the store and rental department. I’m not sure if the center is officially open but there were quite a few people standing around with their skis.
Everyone seemed very busy, so I thought I should give them a few hours to get set up.
I got back to the center with my snowshoes around 1:00pm and I saw several people skiing on the freshly groomed trails. I put on my snowshoes, a big grin and headed out across the fresh powder. After about the first ten feet of snowshoeing I could not believe how deep the snow was. Every step was like picking up a shovel full of snow with my foot and throwing it in front of me. I told myself, “I’m not going to stop until I get to the first warming hut”, so on I went. After about an hour I arrived at the spot where I knew the warming hut should be, but it was not there yet. I decided I’d gone far enough, so I turned around and headed back.
On the way back I saw more people skiing and having a great time. If you decide to go snowshoeing tomorrow, I broke a great trail for you.

This morning I woke-up to over a foot snow.
All this week the topic of the day was how much snow we would get this weekend. I heard talk of anywhere from one to four feet. So far all the rumors are coming true, but we’ll just have to wait and see what the rest of the weekend brings.
Forecasters are saying the next storm could bring 3 to 4 inches of snow an hour in some areas. This may accumulate to as much as 3 to 4 feet by Monday. Great news for our ski areas and local economy.
