Spring skiing is one of the greatest experiences when slapping two planks on your feet and sliding down a mountain. Warmer temps, a healthy snow pack and sunny lenses in your goggles are always a great combination.
Sometimes the spring ski trip is best left to a last minute decision based on easy, inexpensive flights and the snow conditions. The crowds are typically lower in volume to give you more time on the slopes, and less time in the lift line. Plenty of resorts offer discounted lift tickets this time of the year if you purchase online in advance.

Lake Tahoe is home to 13 different ski resorts that straddle the California/Nevada border. This region was struggling with snow for a majority of the season, then March came around.

Lately resorts have been reporting anywhere from 6-10 inches regularly, with some storms dumping up to 30 inches on more than one occasion.
