You should have seen us last week when the big storm came in and instead of the much needed snow, we got buckets of the dreaded four letter word that starts with an R. Finally, once a good soaking rain had passed through, we did manage to gather in about 5 inches of snow, but the conversation in town was all about that lost moisture that should be frozen up on the hill.

Then a few days later it finally happened. A foot of wet snow at lake level, with a good deal more higher up. Enough snow to liven things up at the downhill ski areas, actually open the cross-country ski areas for the first time this season, and hopefully turn this into a real winter. We need a lot more, but finally near the end of January it’s a good start. And we are very happy.

So assuming winter has finally begun, what do you say we actually make plans for doing some winter type activities?

Here are a few of the best : Wednesday nights in February,7 PM in Squaw Valley. Lake Tahoe Adventure Slide Show Series. View awesome photos and listen to the incredible stories of our mountain adventurers. http://http://www.squaw.com/lake-tahoe-adventure-slide-show-series

February 25th, The Children’s Glowstick Parade and Carnival, at Tahoe Donner Ski Area. Kids get to ski down the hill in the dark carrying glowsticks. Gotta be fun. www.tahoedonner.com

March 2-11th, throughout North Tahoe and Truckee, Snowfest. This event has something for everyone from The Great Ski Race, to the parade, fireworks, and polar bear swims. There are dozens of other fun events and parties in this Largest Winter Carnival in the West. www.tahoesnowfestival.com.
