We all know that Tahoe had a banner season in 2010/11. But, how epic was it? How big were the snow totals at ski resorts in Lake Tahoe? We were curious, too so we got the numbers from www.TahoeWeatherDiscussion.com and put ‘em up here for all to see.
All the ski resorts below have snow totals on their websites, except for Alpine, Homewood, Boreal, & Diamond Peak. In those cases TahoeWeatherForecast.com kept a tally of their numbers and added it up for us. If you haven’t checked out this website yet, you need to, it’s the ultimate for Tahoe Weather.
