Palisades Tahoe, CA, became the latest in a long line of resorts to postpone its upcoming opening day due to less than favorable conditions. Despite a three-foot dump in October that allowed the resort to open for a weekend, the weather has been warm and dry since, melting what snow there was and preventing snowmaking operations.
The resort put out a statement yesterday:
After an early taste of skiing and riding in October, we’ve been counting down the days when we can get back on the slopes. But the month of November has brought unseasonably warm temperatures and no substantial snowstorms so far, so we will not be able to open for daily skiing & riding on November 24 as planned.
The Aerial Tram will open for sightseeing November 24th – 28th and our Village festivities will go on! Join us for Thanksgiving Dinner in Olympic House and our Welcome to Winter events Friday – Saturday with shopping discounts for Ikon passholders, happy hour specials, photos with Santa, and our annual Christmas tree lighting.
We are now targeting to re-open the slopes in early December, as soon as conditions allow. Our crews are prepped and ready to make snow whenever temps are low enough to get us back on the hill as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and do your snow dances!
