FORECAST: Litter with a Chance of Snow
Meteorologists love to get our hopes up for heavy snows in Tahoe. More times than not, their forecasts lead to disappointment. But come snow, sleet, rain or shine, you can always count on fresh accumulations of litter in the Basin.

Trash on Tahoe's slopes, beaches, trails and streets is far more disappointing than missing a big storm. Until litter is no more, our passionate #TahoeBlueGooder family is stepping up.
If it's not inside the garbage can, it still counts as litter.
