Tahoe is starting to look like the winter wonderland it’s known as. Six to eight inches fell between Thursday night and Friday morning.
According to a weather advisory by NOAA.gov, more snow is expected to come throughout the weekend:
ANOTHER COLD FRONT WILL AFFECT THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING...
* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 4 TO 8 INCHES...WITH 6 TO 12 INCHES ABOVE 7000 FEET.
With the new snow, Boreal Mountain will be open seven days a week. It will likely remain the only Tahoe resort running until Northstar and Heavenly open on November 18th.
The cold front rolling in will provide optimal temperatures for resorts like Boreal, Squaw, Northstar, Heavenly, Diamond Peak and Sugar Bowl to continue making snow, and the foot of snow expected this weekend will set the Tahoe resorts up nicely with a solid base.
Here are some tentative opening dates for resorts around the lake:
- Boreal Mountain Resort: Nov. 4
- Heavenly Lake Tahoe: Nov. 18
- Northstar: Nov. 18
- Mount Rose Ski Tahoe: Nov. 23
- Sugar Bowl Ski Resort: Nov. 23
- Squaw Valley: Nov. 23
- Kirkwood Mountain Resort: Nov. 24
- Diamond Peak Ski Resort: Dec. 15
- Other Tahoe resorts: TBD dates
