Just heard on the radio this morning that Tahoe has had 2-solid weeks of heavy snow. 2 solid weeks of powder days. They interviewed a gal from Squaw and she said they're putting away the snow guns for the season and that the base at the top was over 230." She said they should have no problem staying open through May.
Then the local guys said that it wouldn't be a stretch to say that it's possible that they could realistically stay open through June if the temps remained on the cooler side of averages.
I was at Squaw yesterday and two guys from Colorado told me they had never experienced such great powder conditions. They had been there for 4 days and it hadn't stopped snowing...
So, book those tickets for May or even June... But then again, there could be a heat wave in Tahoe next month and wipe out all of the base. With the weather, anything can and will happen.
