Tahoe after a few weeks of no snow - Page 3

post #61 of 67

This thread may have to be renamed:  Tahoe after a few months of no snow.  The snow gods are out there somewhere.  Perhaps a small sacrifice is in order.

Another 7ft dump for a full reset.  I can't wait to ski around Tahoe with fresh soft snow.

There are ways around the village schlog, I'd have been happy to share if you'd contacted me

Next trip we will definitely look to doing the trip midweek, and make sure the snow conditions are better.

Thanks for the offer, and next time we're out there it will be mid-week so we'll try and say hello to you and Philpug.  Besides the base area, for the terrain my wife can ski, we just didn't like the layout of the lifts/slopes, how everything converges.  There's a lot of other areas we would like to get to, especially because we like the more "old school" areas where real estate is not the primary focus. 

 

We'll be back, but we'll make sure it's not during a snow drought.

Any time you're out, give us a shout.
