We have had a great month of snow and rainfall here in the Tahoe Basin. Tahoe gets about four inches of precipitation during a typical March. There has been 12.32 inches of precipitation this month to make it the fourth wettest March on record, dating back to 1910. The lake is about six inches from its legal limit, with plenty more water to flow in once the snow starts melting. March is the best time to visit the Tahoe area and if you enjoy winter and spring/summer activities we have the right Lake Tahoe home for you!
Many Tahoe home buyers consider the distance from their property to the surrounding ski slopes and beaches. With the amount of snowfall we have had this year in March alone, the slopes are calling and the lake will definitely be buzzing with activity in a couple months.
