With the storm door finally open for now, the storms are blowing in one after the other. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) forecast indicates that it's very possible for those hopes to be realized. Their forecast has issued a winter storm warning that expires at 4 p.m. on Monday, February 8, with snow continuing through Monday. There's a chance for more later in the week.

This is music to the ears of everyone who enjoys sliding about on the snow. It is especially good news for the black diamond crowd, as the steeps should get enough to make them skiable again.

Richmond and Brouse said this in the press release:

"As of Friday morning, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows had both received four inches of new snow, with heavy snowfall continuing throughout the day. This weekend, skiers and riders at Squaw and Alpine can expect an additional 23 inches of new snow by Saturday morning, with snowfall continuing Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Both resorts could have a total of 46 inches of new snow on the slopes by Monday afternoon."

Taking advantage of the Tahoe Super 4 Pack would give skiers and riders 4 unrestricted days of skiing and riding anytime this season for "...less than $88 a day for adults, $75 for young adults and seniors and $50 for kids with absolutely no blackout dates. Tahoe Super 4 Packs are available on squaw.com and skialpine.com, or by calling 800-403-0206."

New snow, great price for 4 days of skiing makes the new snow that much more wonderful. The season, off to a late start, has at last started. If the storm door stays open, especially if the storms come down from the north, the snow sports crowd will make up for the late start, the forest will be healthy, and we'll all smile more.
