Spring Snow = Summer Water

Lake Tahoe and Surrounds

Driving in to South Lake Tahoe from Sacramento

After six years of drought and sadly deficient Sierra snow pack, who would have dreamed we’d see fresh snow in the mountains in April?

The soft new blanket of snow delights outdoor sports enthusiasts as well as nature lovers.

Even down in South Lake Tahoe, the sticky spring snow coats everything. But it won’t last long here.

Snowy Branch Dripping Water

It’s melting! As beautiful as it is, it will soon be gone from the trees to the water table.

Up above town, Eagle Creek has more water than it knows what to do with due to snowmelt. At last!

The creek rushes riotously, rejoicing with the loudest roar we’ve heard in years.

The snow and the creeks feed our beautiful Lake Tahoe and replenish drinking water for all who visit.
