Little to no clearance on KT-22 in late February. It took a few machines (and employees) to get clearance for skiers and riders to load the chairlift. At first, we could only load 2-3 people due to weight on the line. Photo: Will Paden, Director of Avalanche Control

A storm is rolling into Lake Tahoe, CA as we speak.  Rain/snow is forecast to begin around 11am today.

Monday could be a mini powder day with a heck of a Palisades/Chimney session at Squaw…

Squaw, Alpine, Mt. Rose, Sugar Bowl, and Mammoth are are still open in CA/NV and might all be looking good on Monday morning.

NOAA:

"Snow levels will be around 7500 to 8000 feet and we could see upwards
of 6 to 12 inches in the Tahoe basin as well as for Alpine and
Mono counties late tonight into Sunday morning." - NOAA Reno, NV today

 

"Snow levels will be above 8000 feet for much of the day [Saturday], but then
lower to near 7000 feet by tonight and early Sunday morning.
Snowfall is likely in the Sierra over 8000 feet with 3 to 8
inches possible in some locations and locally higher amounts
around 12 inches. Sierra passes such as Mount Rose Summit, Carson
Pass, Echo Summit, Deadman, Devil`s Gate and Sherwin Summits may
pick up several inches of snow through Sunday morning. Can`t rule
out the possibility of several inches even for Mammoth Lakes if
snow levels drop low enough with ongoing shower activity early
Sunday morning." - NOAA Reno, NV today
