It's no secret that the 2016-17 winter season was absolutely EPIC. Snow fell, lakes froze, power went out, and all the while, stoke remained high. So as the season draws to a close, it's time to look back on this record-breaking winter around Lake Tahoe.
November and December had powder hounds questioning whether the Sierras were in for another drought period. But then January arrived and it was clear that 2017 wasn't here to mess around. Mother Nature dropped more than 275 inches of snow in January. That's more than 23 feet of snow in 1 month! But February didn't disappoint either, bringing another 200 inches of snow with it. The winter ski season really culminated this past month, however, when it officially became a record-breaking season thanks to more than 50 inches of snow during April.
Fittingly, it's time to look back on this special winter as we look forward to a well-deserved summer. Thanks for the face shots, Mother Nature!
