Mother Nature hits the refresh button waving goodbye to the "Tahoe Drought"

It’s amazing how quickly one forgets about the “Tahoe Drought” as the “worst” ski season ever has just hit the largest refresh button known to the ski world. Over the last few weeks, storms have been lining up across the Pacific and unleashing a barrage of cold, waist-deep fluff throughout the Tahoe area. While the visibility has been low, it really doesn’t matter--how can you expect to see much anyway when you have pow smacking you in the face with every turn? The best news… there’s more on the way!
