Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 20 to 30 April, 2014 - After the 20th (after this weekend), the overall pattern goes from high pressure ridging and dry for the most part, to unsettled with potential rain and snow, as large scale low pressure develops across the west coast and western US./ This unsettled pattern should continue through much of April, possibly switching back to high pressure and sunshine in the last week of April. CM

Longer Range Outlook

As of now, April 2014, we are continuing to be affected by an ENSO-Neutral, or La Nada Sea Surface Temperature pattern across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific (SSTs near to slightly below average).

Current SST pattern- La Nada

The larger time-scale SST pattern in place right now is a cool phase PDO, or negative PDO, which stands for Pacific Decadal Oscillation. This is a more long term pattern (decades), and it has made any recent years El Nino SST patterns weaker.

We expect the ENSO Neutral, or La Nada pattern (almost a La Nina) to continue, and in the last 30 days we have seen more of a La Nina pattern develop with colder SST's along the eastern Equatorial Pacific and even the region 3.4 always referred to, though less so in 3.4. We are not seeing the trend toward El Nino yet.

We will keep this outlook updated as more information becomes available.

Starting from the main lodge (8,260'), you're launched into nearly 1,500 vertical feet in just three and a half minutes. The reward? Panoramic views... spectacular Lake Tahoe to the west, the entire state of Nevada to the east. But the real payoff begins as you descend into nearly 1,200 acres of some of the Sierra's best powder on 60+ trails and endless glades. No ski resort is more conveniently located than Lake Tahoe's Mt. Rose. It boasts the closest skiing and riding to the Reno/Tahoe International Airport. It's just 25 minutes from over 17,000 unbelievably affordable hotel rooms in exciting Reno, Nevada. This ideal locale makes Tahoe's highest base ski resort the perfect choice for the first and last day of your Lake Tahoe vacation.
