Hello Skiers and Boarders,
Friday night it rained a little at the 6500 foot level. Friday morning wet snow fell down to the Truckee River, although roads remain clear, but wet this afternoon. It actually snowed about 6 inches on the hill overnight. It was wet snow and more wet snow dropped from the sky all morning, but it was not deep enough to be a problem. In fact, the snow, where it was not tracked up or packed down, was creamy. I had no problem making turns in the untracked. Winds increased as the morning turned to afternoon causing most of higher elevation lifts to close. We came in wet, but I did not hear any complaints. It is snow steadily at this hour (3:30 pm) with pretty dire forecasts for the next few days. I have heard reports ranging from 2 to 4 feet at lake level to 13 feet at the highest elevations (Mammoth?). Snow, heavy at times, should continue into Tuesday. I guess we wait and watch to see how much snow falls and if the ski areas can open given the high wind forecast.
Attached are a couple of photos taken today. One of the snow on the cars in parking area taken at noon and one of the lack of skiers lined up to ride Scott Chair.
Enjoy your day,
