Tahoe and Oregon waited all season for one great week of snow, and that week was last week. Eight-day totals ending on April 1st show that the powder was plentiful:
Sugar Bowl, CA: 88"
Kirkwood, CA: 72"
Squaw Valley, CA: 66"
Alpine Meadows, CA: 48"
Mt. Bachelor, OR: 45"
The entire west coast will see a break in the snow on Thursday, then another batch of moisture will take aim on the Pacific Northwest from Friday night through Sunday with British Columbia, Washington and Oregon seeing 20" + of powder. The issue with this storm will be the snow levels, which will be in the 4,000-5,000 foot range in Washington, a bit higher in Oregon and a bit lower in British Columbia. Stay at the upper parts of the mountain for the best snow and to avoid the rain.
Spring weather will take over on Monday April 7th and last for about a week, so expect sunny skies and warm temperatures. Then more storms will return to the west coast during the middle of April, so we’re not done yet!
