Win a free weekend rental! One winner daily ’till Christmas.

So far we have had two good snow storms in North Tahoe, and two good storms in South Tahoe and further south. All resorts are open, with snow depths anywhere from 1’ to 3’, with approximately 25% of all runs open in most resorts, and an 80% chance of snow again tomorrow, so keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks to all our customers who came by for our first annual Season Grand Opening! It was a great success, attended by almost 100 people. The hors d’oeuvres and wine were great, everyone enjoyed seeing our new equipment, and we received 87 presents for Toys for Tots, so thank you, all of you who contributed. This will definitely make Christmas a little merrier for some needy children who otherwise might not get much.

Congratulations, also, to our raffle winners. Charles S., Campbell M., Alex V., Dalal H. and John L. each won a free weekend rental ski package. Congratulations to each of you!

Just to keep the excitement going, we have decided to continue to raffle one weekend ski package daily from now until Christmas. Just come into the shop, “like” us on Facebook, and we will enter your name in our drawing. If you win, you get one free weekend ski package anytime this ski season. It’s that simple!

It’s getting close to Christmas, so for all of you going to the mountains, drive carefully and ski safely. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for you and yours!

And Think Snow!

Ski Season Is Rapidly Approaching!

Cupertino – It’s November. We’ve already seen snow in the Sierra Nevada. The temperature has dropped. And we’re been busy getting The Ski Renter ready for another season. Ski season is almost here!

After two consecutive seasons of low snowfall, the predictions are looking up for this year. The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting above normal snowfall and below normal temperatures. So are several other sources of weather information.

To be sure, they don’t all agree, and while science is applied in predicting the weather, weather prediction is still more of an art than a science. So we just have to wait and see. Regardless, the ski season is almost on us and snow is on the way!
