The storm that blew into Northern California yesterday dumped plenty of snow on to all Tahoe area ski hills, and the accumulations were actually larger than anticipated. Skiers and boarders are in luck as the new snow really helped to cover bare or thin spots on runs, in bowls, in the trees and in the backcountry. Skiers and boarders should try and make it up to the mountains to enjoy the fluffy largesse ad there will be plenty of fresh powder to be had.
Snow flurries are forecast for today before another good sized storm is predicted for late Wednesday into Thursday. As of this morning, here are snow totals reported by the various resorts.
Alpine Meadows: 15″
Diamond Peak: 10”
Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe: 20″
Squaw Valley: 14″
Sugar Bowl: 18″
Weekend skiing and driving conditions look very promising, and warmer temperatures are also predicted by Friday – so head out and enjoy the superb conditions. Should be the best of the year, so far.
