The recent storm has brought massive amounts of snow, but in some cases, it simply has been too much snow to ensure a safe resort opening or has prevented staff from reaching the resort to get ready. Many backcountry zones are also inaccessible due to closed roads.

The following ski areas are closed and/or inaccessible:

  • Alta Sierra — was closed on Sunday 26, with no update and no information available, assume it is closed
