Sierra snow storms return

See also

The skies are opening up again over the Sierra. A series of storms is moving into the area, which is great news for anyone who plays in the snow.

According to NOAA, the storms will keep the valley wet and will bring much needed snow the Sierra. The prediction is for a foot or more of snow will coat the mountains by the time it's all over.

Starting today, and continuing perhaps through next Tuesday, the storm door is open. Sierra-at-Tahoe, Squaw Valley, Mt. Rose, and the rest of the resorts are all expecting between a foot and two feet or more out of these storms.

The bulk of the first wave of storms will roll through Wednesday night and Thursday. Over the weekend, things pick up again, and the powder will just get deeper.

Donner Ski Ranch plans to re-open on March 1st, and the new snow should make it a very sweet day there. Tahoe Donner is closed until their trails get more snow. Check conditions there before making the trip.

Anyone looking for a good ski in falling snow will find it over the next few days. Since that's been in short supply this season, making plans now to hit the slopes during these storms makes good sense.
