On the forefront of everyone’s mind is the question of when we are going to get one of our famous 5-foot Sierra storms.  Mother nature has not cooperated in providing the heavy snow winters that we are accustomed to, but the pattern is changing and “Miracle March” looks like it is making a comeback.  I am very excited to see the snow totals come this Sunday as we can receive anywhere from 3-6 feet or more in the next three days.  I have a lot of pent up demand for some good powder skiing and this could be the perfect start to ensure a great spring ski season. 

The incoming snow couldn’t have come at a better time as the Annual Snow Festival, a favorite Tahoe tradition, is upon us.  SnowFest 2018 kicks off its 37th annual community event tonight with the Queen Coronation, famous Wet Woody drink and music from Groove Foundry at Garwoods from 5 – 10 pm.  If you’ve yet to see the snow sculpture contest be sure to put it on your calendar for 12pm Sunday, March 11th at the River Ranch.  This Saturday is packed full of events starting with the North Tahoe Firefighter’s pancake breakfast located at the Tahoe City Firehouse starting at 7 am.  The Snow Fest parade will start at 11:30 am in Tahoe City with the day culminating at 2:30 pm at Garwoods with the Great Polar Bear Swim.  There are too many events to mention, so please visit tahoesnowfestival.com for a full listing.
