Spring storms are still going strong, allowing Palisades Tahoe to push back the closing date to Sunday, May 15. After May 1, the resort will be open Friday – Sunday only. The staff is committed to running lifts for as long as possible. Depending on conditions, operations may continue past the scheduled closing date.

In the past 24 hours, Palisades Tahoe received six inches of snow on the upper mountain, and more weather is anticipated through Friday. The NOAA forecast predicts snow accumulation of 21 to 35 inches on the mountain by the end of the week. The next storm will hit the Sierra tonight and continue through Friday morning. We will see some effects of the storm move in today, including wind gusts up to 45 mph. The past week has brought in over three feet of snow, and with more on the way, April has brought us more snowfall than January through March combined.

The weather is forecast to clear for the weekend, with sunny skies and highs in the 40s, just-in-time for Saturday’s Spring Tracks Concert and Tahoe Truckee Earth Day.
