You might think Tahoe locals are tired of digging out their buried driveways and houses, but the all-time conditions keep them shoveling away with a smile. Snowbanks are as tall as street signs and the iconic terrain is perfectly filled-in. Record-breaking snowfall has led to many perfect bluebird days on the slopes. Just ask the regulars, who have already claimed multiple instances of the “Best Day Ever” within the past two months. According to 40 year-old Miles, “the snow has been so good, it makes me feel like I was 22 again.”
