On Friday, November 18th, 2016 Mt. Rose and Boreal Mountain Resort are scheduled to open as the first resorts to open in Lake Tahoe, CA for the 2016-17 winter. This winter has consisted of warm temperatures and a lack of snowfall, which has made it difficult for these resorts to open. Thankfully, the forecast is looking up, cooler temperatures and some natural precipitation is headed to the western United States. This will allow for optimal snowmaking conditions and mother nature will hopefully provide these resorts with a nice natural base to get things really going for the season.
Current Conditions At Mt. Rose:
- 1″ to 7″
Season Snowfall Total:
- 15″ to 30″
“FRIDAY NOV 18 – OPENING DAY FOR THE 2016-17 SEASON! The weather forecast this week shows cold temperatures and SNOW SNOW SNOW! Lifts / Runs / Rates TBD At 8260’, the high base elevation at Mt. Rose combined with our north and east facing slopes always gives us more opportunities to ramp up our snowmaking and achieve the maximum potential to blow and maintain snow,” stated Mt. Rose on their Mountain Conditions.
