Lake Tahoe Snow Report - Pre-Season Update
.Hello, Skiers And Riders®! Hello, skiers and riders®! The tides are turning. Go on, admit it, you've got winter on your brain. Maybe not fully taking over your every thought, but it's there, lurking, ready to go. This pre-season post is just one more thing to add to the mix and start the proverbial stoke.
The daily Lake Tahoe Snow Report updates will return in November, or earlier, depending on when we start to see some white stuff on the ground.Of course the action and excitement has already begun, and the movie premieres and ski and board shows are on the calendar. I'll be makin' plans for a stop at the San Francisco Ski & Snowboard Festival this year, set for Nov. 1-2.
Jeremy Jones' latest film, Higher - The Final Chapter, from TGT Films, premiere's on September 6th at Squaw Valley. Knowing what Jeremy's usually up to, and from the trailer, this looks like one EPIC film - not to be missed.Watch the trailer at www.tetongravity.com.
MSP Films' latest, titled Days Of My Youth, premieres in Boulder, Co. on Sept. 12th and then heads for the west coast with dates in San Francisco (Sept. 19) and Squaw Valley (Sept. 20). Watch the trailer at www.skimovie.com.
Got Your Pass Yet? Season Pass sales are still in play, but price breaks will likely end soon. Check with your favorite resort for dates, prices and deadlines.
Many folks I talk to are in sort of a 'tentative' state after last year's marginal snowfall. At the same time, the abnormally wet Tahoe summer, has given rise to thoughts of a heavy winter ahead. Who knows? I'll pull together my usual mix of climate maps soon and then we can all just wait and see what happens and when Mother Nature opens the door. In the meantime, let's enjoy a glorious fall, huh?
Hope to see you at one of the events above, around town, or better yet, on the mountain. Wishing you a fantastic transition to fall in Lake Tahoe. Oh, and remember, any day on the mountain is a good day!
