A little bit of new snow yesterday was nice. It was foggy at the top and snowing when I was there enough to cover most icy spots

Make sure to come early because it got very slushy by noon. The west mountain was empty but had spots of dirt starting to show thru. East had better snow coverage but was packed on Sunday.

3/14-15 Beatiful weather, no crowds, snow in great shape. Firm but not scratchy at all and cold enough so it never got heavy, clumpy or sticky. As good as a non powder day gets!

There's icy patches, a car flipped in front of me on Wednesday. Stay away if you have bald tires or rear wheel drive. As for snow for your kids below the base of the lift/parking lot, there isn't any. Buy lift tickets, go tubing/skiing, support the inexpensive, awesome mountain, don't create "snow play traffic". $5 to park in the ski area lot and hike up to where the snow starts. Sheriff comes by and checks dashboards/issues citations.

When dodge is good It’s amazing, we’re Tahoe is usually skied up within the first hour at the pockets and powder to be found everywhere for days.it’s extremely good where are most places in Tahoe or speed up within the first hour he still has pockets of beauty into the afternoon and if you’re smart? Beyond.

snowboarded at Eagle lodge today. Nice powder, but top of the lift had major gusts of wind. Took 2nd lift up to the top that was open and conditions were so bad could barely see 10 feet in front of you die ri winds. powder so deep if you fell nearly impossible to get back up again. Will wait for snow to drop before going again

the snow over the week has provided a soft top, but later in the day the icey base from the rain before the snow makes it a little trickier. overall decent for early season.

Great for Nov! They popped the top over the weekend. Sunday was pretty empty and running laps with little to no lines around the mountain. Coverage thinned out in some areas, but all were well marked. If you venture to the top keep in mind you should be in good knowledge of board or ski control to get down the mountain. It wasnt icy but Cornice has moguls and road runner is only about 10ft wide with a cliff on the side. be safe, have fun and get stoked for more snow this week!
