Summer 2012 allowed Martis Camp families to discover the wonders of Tahoe like never before.

This 8,000 square-foot private facility will provide members instant access to the Martis Camp Express chairlift as well as ski, boot and board storage. Lookout Lodge will serve breakfast and lunch daily, dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, and create a fantastic après ski experience for Martis Camp families each winter.

PostHeaderIcon Excellence in Education Foundation Offers 2 Great DEALS – Discount Ski and Golf Tickets!

As a board member of our local (Truckee) Excellence in Education Foundation, I’d like to make you aware of a couple of great offers:

  • Our Skiing for Schools partnership with local ski areas has one last special thru the end of this year’s ski season (see attached).  The purchase of a $35 lift ticket is valid any one day at either Squaw Valley or Alpine Meadows from April 15th thru the end of the season (including weekends!).  If anyone is interested, I’d be happy to purchase the ticket(s) for you and you can just bring me a reimbursement check or cash and pick up the ticket(s) here at Dickson in Truckee.
  • Our Golfing for Schools partnership offers a golf card (transferable) good for one round at each of the following golf courses, for 18 holes of play:  Coyote Moon, Gray’s Crossing, Northstar, Old Brockway, Old Greenwood, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City and Tahoe Donner.  The cost of the card has been drastically reduced this year to only $295!  If any of you have ever played any of these courses, you’ll realize what an incredible deal this is.  Carts are not included (most courses do allow walking), and some retrictions apply.  The golf cards (limited to a total of 275) will be available for sale starting May 5th.

PostHeaderIcon TAHOE SNOWFALL YEARLY TOTALS SINCE 1879-2010 AT DONNER SUMMITT

IS THIS THE YEAR WE BREAK THE SNOWFALL RECORD? 

We have received almost 750” of snow this year, which is about 62 feet of snow (enough to cover a 5 story building). We need to get a total of 840 inches to make this the snowiest year ever breaking the 1938 record.  If you’re wondering what were the five snowiest winters at Norden (in order) are – 1938, 1952, 1880, 1890 and 1895. 

Records have been kept since 1878 marking it the longest data set in Sierra Nevada. The Tamarack station, at 8,000 feet elevation in Alpine County, was active for a relatively short period of time.  Not only was the seasonal snowfall record was set there, but California’s greatest snow depth of 37.6 feet was measured there in 1911.  The United States greatest monthly snowfall record of 32.5 feet occurred there during January 1911. 

To put the 2011 season in perspective, as of March 28th we are in the top 10 years of the most snow.  See below and attached the Donner Summit Snowfall from 1879 – 2010 by the CSSL.
