Tahoe Skiing Conditions – January 2014

A lot of news outlets are spouting doom and gloom when it comes to Sierra Snow – and to be sure, there isn’t a lot. But what there is is great – fun groomers at every resort around Tahoe. But instead of telling you, we thought we’d show you – we spent some time on Jan 16 & 17 at Sugar Bowl and Alpine Meadows and had a blast, check it out:

As long as you have the right skis for the job, you can have a blast at any of Tahoe’s resorts. Right now we have great groomer carving skis on sale starting at $149, so there’s no excuse not to get out and carve. Shop here.


Start Haus Ski News

We’re starting a weekly post here at the Start Haus to bring you all the Tahoe ski news you need. We’ll post up racing info, Tahoe ski events, wax calls, ski deals and more here every Friday.

We’ll start off the week with a couple of screaming deals: We have the Salomon BBR 7.9 and Salomon Sentinel on sale for only $299! The BBR is an superhero ski for intermediate skiers looking to get beyond the groomer, and the Sentinel is a rockin’ all mountain ski that’s a solid contender for a Tahoe quiver-of-one.

Don’t be fooled by anyone telling you it’s only raining up here, the skiing is good! Check out this picture from Thursday – Start Haus’s Phil getting freshies on his Blizzard Bonafides, testing out the new Fischer Vacuum Ski Boots:
