As a much needed storm makes its way into Tahoe, the skiing at Sugar Bowl is still hangin’ tough with ripping groomers and some rickety off piste skiing. First thing this morning there was around a half inch of new snow coating the groomers, making for some really fun hot laps. Unfortunately the Judah side of the mountain is still closed, but with a few inches of fresh snow on tap over the weekend Sugar Bowl will hopefully be able to reopen operations from the Judah side of the resort.
This morning clouds were rolling in and out, and intermittent snowfall produced around a half inch of new snow livening up the groomers and trying to soften the off piste. Midday brought sunshine and a brief period of warming before the clouds rolled back in, and the snow is now starting to try and fly again.
For the first time since December its starting to look like we may get accumulating snow at lake level in Tahoe, with the possibility of up to 12″ in areas above 7,000 feet.
