NOAA is calling for snow in the higher elevations of the Sierra Nevada mountains of California this Wednesday and Thursday.  They’re expecting snow at pass levels, which means we should be seeing snow around 7,000-feet and above.

3 ski resorts are still open in California and the Eastern Sierra backcountry is skiing great right now.

“An approaching storm system will bring chances for thunderstorms across the valley and the mountains for Wednesday and Thursday. Widespread rainfall is possible, with higher amounts expected in the foothills and the Sierra. Heavy rain and small hail are possible in thunderstorms across the valley. Snowfall is also expected at higher elevations, which may cause travel difficulties at pass levels. Stay tuned to the latest forecast information for updates!” – NOAA, today

The skiing has been great at Squaw and Mammoth this week.  Both resorts just need a few inches of snow to be smooth and playful this week.  The Chimney was open at Squaw yesterday and today and likely will be again after this coming snowfall.
