Feeling Snow Good

Feeling Snow Good Tahoe U Blog photo of Donner Lake in snow 

There's no feeling in the world like waking up to a fresh blanket of snow. This past week brought a few waves of storms, some scary road conditions and power outages, but it was all worth it to see our town turn into a real life snow globe. We hope you stayed safe while the storms ran their course and can now enjoy the fresh snow outside!


Scenes from Truckee in snow


It can be a lot of work to live in the snow or for our visitors to make the long drive over the summit, so be sure you take the time to stop and take it all in. Whether you grew up here or are visiting for the first time, the visuals are never less than breathtakingthe cold can catch your breath, too...brr!

Fresh snow instantly transports you to a simpler time. Our #wednesdaywisdom quote this week came from artist, Andy Goldsworthy, “Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.” As parents we love seeing the fun snow brings to our kids (especially when they get a day off of school). The best snow adventure partners are our dogs. Weathering the storm inside can be hard for doggies, so once they're able to get out for a romp its pure joy.

With a three-day weekend here, there's plenty of time to enjoy all the adventures that come with fresh pow. Check out one of our recent posts filled with mini-getaways, or stick around and take in the fun from our own backyard. With resorts around the lake reporting several feet, of course you can also hit the slopes. If that isn't your thing, there's ice skating, sledding and of course... shopping. Just as there’s an activity for everyone in the family, there’s a Tahoe U Original for every snowman, woman, boy and girl.

When you’re surrounded by a winter wonderland ready to be explored, the options are endless. With postcard-worthy winters and picture-perfect summers, it's no surprise that this is the place to be. We pride ourselves in coming up with the perfect #stylealtitude, considering comfort and weather, but even we were thrilled that THE source on all-things-stylish, Vogue, acknowledged our little slice of heaven.


Cheers to fresh powder and making memories! We hope you get out there and enjoy this weekend. There will be a lot of people with the same idea, so make sure to plan ahead and drive safely. Of course, no itinerary would be complete without a pit-stop at our store. Tahoe pic by @barefootmanifesto
