Now on to the long range: mid next week we see some Pacific storm energy moving in off the mid-Pacific, for some light to moderate snowfall across Tahoe, Mammoth favored. Snow levels may be in the 7,000 foot range at times. Following this we expect a stronger set of storms for next weekend (22nd - 24th), and possibly heavier snow with less or no snow level issues for lower base elevation resorts. The last few days of March and into April we expect to see more storms, this time colder and from colder source regions. CM
NOTES: When paying full attention to the Tahoe area, which I have been watching weather patterns for since the 1970's, no one is more accurate in their forecasts of weather events/ timing/ snow totals, including in the long range. We gained quite a reputation for our Tahoe forecasts over a span of almost 15 years, gaining the attention of TV stations who used the forecasts with no mention of source, a movie financier who wanted me to be a part of a "think tank" group of professionals, radio stations, etc. Even major growers/ ag interests were using these free forecasts (for the longer range accuracy of weather event timing and significance), as an accurate long range forecaster is the equivalent of a "fortune teller", as told to me by the movie financier. There are competitors who charge for their info, and we do not, even though our information is a paid service in other formats we continue to deliver to agriculture customers to this day (Circa 1995). As I stated, I put my forecasts up against anyone else's in the area.
I never charged the site user for my services. The skier/ snowboarder has enough to pay for with fuel, lift tickets and passes, gear, life, etc., and I feel it is a service that should be provided by the host, the resort, to its visitors, even if in the form of advertising on the site. I have the same awesome, nice traffic as the rest of the snow sports niche sites, but am not going to run Google ads so they can charge $20/ cpm and give us less than a dollar cpm (literally their crumbs, and what are they creating on a daily basis? weather forecasts? So, no thanks).
That said... I watch Colorado as that is where the business is for me. Recently, Bogus Basin joined the client list and now we work up a complete custom forecast for them as well, with a long range outlook. I will be drawing from that already completed work, and add more scrutiny on what is coming for Tahoe-Mammoth, to deliver some short, but mostly longer range outlooks for Tahoe. I hope it is useful for you. CM
Snow Potential: Expected snowfall to be 2 to 3 inches in the early morning followed by another trace amount before noon and a trace amount in the afternoon followed by another trace amount later into the evening.
