14″ at Alpine Meadows

Tahoe City, CA—Lake Tahoe’s Alpine Meadows Ski Resort has received 10 inches of new snow at its base lodge and 14 inches of new snow at its mid mountain snow stake last night. Overnight temperature lows remained between 21 and 25 degrees and made for perfect snow storm conditions. Current weather as of 7 am includes continued snowfall and a base lodge temperature of 26 degrees. With an additional 12 inches of snow expected today at the base lodge (elevation 6825′), skiers and snowboarders can expect to ski and ride out the remainder of 2006 year in style: POWDER!

Combined with the storm which covered the mountain with 16 to 22 inches of snow just five days ago, conditions at the mountain are that of classic mid-winter.

Skiers and riders at Alpine have a common bond, that which is uncommonly spoken. At a mountain that hosts some of North America’s most sought-after terrain, most loyal visitors gage happiness by powder depth. The privilege of finding hidden terrain, the charm of a mid-morning cocoa break, and the unspoken bond between other skiers and boarders make the whole of Alpine greater than the sum of its parts. Alpine is tradition. Beauty. Passion and Soul.
