Kirkwood ski resort in Lake Tahoe, CA just saw 10-11″ of new snow earlier this week and another 3″ of snow last night prompting them to announce their opening day to be this Saturday, November 27th, 2016.

More snow if forecast for Tahoe this weekend.

They will open with Chair 5/Solitude only.

“Our opening day for the 16/17 Winter season is on this Saturday, November 26th 😉

Mtn. operations teams working to prep Solitude (Chair 5) for opening day… Snowmakers snowmaking, Groomers grooming, Lifty’s lifting 😉

NWS forecast: A storm system exits the region today. Another cold system is expected to affect the region late this week.

Extended forecast models still quite a bit of uncertainty in timing the return of precip across NorCal this weekend. Models continue to struggle with how much the system will dig off the coast on Friday slowing the eastward progression of the system and onset of precip for NorCal. It appears we`ll still stand a good chance of precip, but a majority may occur on Saturday rather than Friday. It bears watching as it has the potential for more significant snowfall
accumulations across the mountains during the holiday weekend.” – Kirkwood, today
