A few inches of wet snow on top of slush will be fun. Granite Chief was fun after the last little storm with a few inches of wet new snow on top of ice and slush (see image below). This next storm should be even a little deeper up there. We are definitely gonna take what we can get and be happy with all we get.
– Thursday = 2-4” of new snow, snow level at 8,000-7,000 feet
– Sunday = 3-6” of new snow, snow level at lake level (6,000 feet)
– “Thursday we have a quick moving wave of precip moving through. We should see rain Thursday and Thursday night with snow levels of 8000 ft. Thursday dropping close to 7000 ft. Thursday night. Above that we could 1-2 inches on the mountains on the East side of the basin and 2-4 inches on the West side.” – Brian Allegretto/opensnow.com
It looks like “powder” days will be had in Tahoe on Friday and Monday. Good week to take a 4 day weekend. We aren’t giving up on winter just yet, but taking advantage of this last mini storm cycle is highly recommended.
