Snowfall in South Lake Tahoe

Abominable Snow Dawg

Believe it or not South Lake Tahoe and the surrounding communities do have microclimates. These microclimates become evident in the winter months. Typically areas in and around Meyers (including Christmas Valley and the North Upper Truckee areas) have the most significant snowfall. As you move east that amount of snowfall from the same storms drops, sometimes significantly. The Nevada side of the lake is often referred to as the “Banana Belt” when it comes to snowfall.
