N. Tahoe ski resorts open early
A powerful early season storm has brought more than 2 feet of snow to the North Lake Tahoe region. Boreal Mountain Resort and Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe are already spinning lifts daily for skiing and riding. By the end of the week, Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar California will join the roster of open resorts.
The recent snowstorms have entered the region consistently throughout the past week, leaving most areas in the region with more than 2 feet of snow. The most recent storm Monday night has left ski resorts with 6 inches to 8 inches of powder. Cold weather conditions have allowed ski resorts to use snowmaking systems consistently bolstering snowpack and allowing for additional terrain to be opened.
