Palisades Tahoe has seen 18.03m, Heavenly Mountain Resort received 14.37m and Kirkwood Mountain Resort reached 17.78m. They are new records for all three resorts.
In Palisades Tahoe the previous record of 17.95m of snowfall was set in the 2016-2017 season.
The current depth of 18.03m is 178% higher than the average season snowfall of 10.16m.
“Palisades Tahoe has been fortunate to receive an incredible amount of snowfall this season, covering our mountain in deep snow,” said Dee Byrne from the resort.
“ Skiers and snowboarders have had an unforgettable time on both the groomed trails and the untouched snow pockets.
“We are immensely grateful for the iconic conditions and natural beauty that Mother Nature has gifted us with this season at Palisades Tahoe.”
This record season snowfall has allowed Palisades Tahoe to stay open on the Alpine side until the 4th of July.
PlanetSKI is visiting in mid-May.
