NOAA has issued a Winter Storm Watch for northern California and southern Oregon today that does not include Shasta for some reason…

Snow levels are forecast to stay relatively low for the Shasta.

Ahead of this front, expect relatively
cold air in place with snow levels of around 2500 to 3500 ft
elevation in Southern Oregon and around 4000 to 5000 ft elevation
in Northern California. Snow levels are expected to rise
Wednesday morning and afternoon as the warm front lifts northward
into Southern Oregon. Snow levels will rise to 6000 to 7000+ feet
elevation on Wednesday but may remain lower over far northern
Klamath and Lake Counties.

Mt. Shasta is already sitting on a enormous base of somewhere between 10-20′ of snow.

The skiing and riding on Shasta has been unreal since October.

This storm is only going to make Shasta better.

Mt. Shasta ski park plans to open on December 15th, 2016.
