Come January, the new year always seems to deliver some type of surprise. And did it ever this past month. While January is often a good month for snow, this record-breaking month will be the talk of the town for years to come. The snow gods smiled down upon Lake Tahoe, delivering more than 23 feet of beautiful white fluff.
JanuBURIED or not, it didn't stop a fun month. Mountain conditions were all-time for skiers and snowboarders, thanks to powder day after powder day. And Northstar California was no exception. Recent days have seen the terrain parks team pull off a major revamp of all eight parks to include more than 180 features, while White Rabbit and Sawtooth made their season debuts last week.
All in all, January has been an incredible month full of surprises. Both Lake Tahoe locals and visitors alike took advantage of the snowy landscape to enjoy activities like sledding, snowshoeing, igloo-building, and even a little urban street shredding.
