The winter storm hitting the Sierra Nevada this week comes just in time for many resorts who have opening days on the horizon. Kirkwood Mountain Resort, CA who were originally scheduled to open last week, will finally get their lifts turning this Friday, 29th November with the added bonus of up to 4-feet of fresh snow, and Heavenly Resort plan on opening tomorrow, Wednesday 27th.

The start of the season is just around the corner!🤘 If Mother Nature stays on course, we are planning on now opening on Friday, Nov. 29.
While unseasonably warm weather in November has not made it optimal for our snowmaking crew, the upcoming forecast shows the storm door opening for some fresh goodness and cool days. Our goal is to provide our community with a superior early-season mountain experience, and we are excited to open soon with great conditions. Thank you to our loyal community, and Kirkwood team who are working non-stop to make this a great season.
Northstar California also continues to target Friday, November 29th, to open for skiing and snowboarding.
