April Showers Bring May POWDER! Palisades Tahoe Receives 2 Feet of New Snowfall.

While most ski resorts in California have already closed for the season, one is still getting some epic powder days.

Palisades Tahoe is celebrating an unusual weather event that has delivered more than two feet of snow this May. The resort received 26 inches of snow in 24 hours, a truly remarkable occurrence this late in the season.

This snow accumulation has pushed the resort’s total for the season to 423 inches, well above its average annual snowfall of 400 inches. Thanks to this surprise from Mother Nature, Palisades Tahoe has announced an extension of the ski season, now planning to keep its slopes open for skiing and snowboarding every day through Memorial Day.

The resort, known as the Spring Skiing Capital of Lake Tahoe, embraced the quirky weather with humor in their recent announcement, proclaiming, “According to Mother Nature, the saying now goes, ‘April showers bring May POWDER’!”

The new snow has led to a rescheduling of the resort’s signature spring event. The 38th annual Cushing Crossing pond skim, originally slated for May 4, has been moved to May 11. This event, a favorite among visitors and locals, features skiers and snowboarders attempting to cross a large pond on their equipment — a festive celebration of spring that will now enjoy even more snow.
