South Lake tahoe in mid-December?

hey guys,

I have never been to tahoe in mid december and I was wondering how the weather is up there at that time of the year.. I've seen photos around the web and it looks like there's not much snow. What do you guys think? Is tahoe a good place to go for snowboarding in December? Thanks!

It is a pretty big gamble. It can be great mountain biking then. It can also dump and have plenty snow. The fact of the matter is, mid December is a crap shoot anywhere out west. Tahoe maybe being the biggest gamble of them all.

unless you can predict the future, it's hard to answer this question with any degree of authority. i've had huge mid-decembers in south lake. last year was not one of them.

unless you are having to make travel plans far in advance, in which case you are going to be gambling whatever happens, the longer you can wait the better an idea you will have.

there is snow in the forecast for tonight - they're calling for a foot or more. that's a great start but it won't allow most resorts to get too much terrain open. i work at heavenly and we'll be opening with limited terrain tomorrow - our enormous snowmaking operation generally allows us to get some trails open ahead of other resorts in tahoe.

You must have not read the previous posts. Snow is a hit or miss in December. Crowds come with the snow. Especially on weekends. Check snow reports.
