Considering it hasn't snowed in over 3 weeks and no snow making at Sierra except the bunny run, the conditions are pretty decent. There are probably about 10 runs that coverage and grooming make it quite nice. No black runs open that aren't covered in either rocks or ice. I commend the grooming team while we have this January lull in snow. Pray for snow folks !
I'm a beginner to intermediate skier, and just had the best day I've ever had. The comments below almost scared me off. Unless you're a pro with really high expectations, there's a ton of fun to be had up here. Snowmaking and grooming are great. It feels like you own the place.
Skied Kirkwood for first time today by far best snow coverage of any resorts in Tahoe. Runs were well groomed in the morning by afternoon coverage began show some dry stops by nothing to cause any major hazards. Well worth making the trip even with spring like conditions.
