Lake Tahoe Reports Second Busiest Ski Season on Record

Lake Tahoe, CA July 16, 2010 – As the summer influx of visitors to Lake Tahoe nears its seasonal peak, the Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts issued their results for the 2009-2010 ski season and recorded a whopping 17 percent increase in skier visits over the prior year.

According to an announcement from Ski Lake Tahoe — a group composed of Alpine Meadows, Heavenly, Kirkwood, Mt. Rose, Northstar-at-Tahoe, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Squaw Valley USA — 2009-10 was the second busiest season ever for Tahoe, and more than four times the national average recorded by the National Ski Area Association. The resorts attributed the visitor influx to the more than 600 inches of snow that fell — double the national average — and a long winter with some ski lifts operating from Halloween through the Fourth of July.

“The combination of reliable snow conditions coupled with unbeatable vacation deals and a totally unique, memorable winter experience has become the trademark of the Ski Lake Tahoe resorts,” said John Wagnon, president of Ski Lake Tahoe.
