More skiable terrain is set to open in Tahoe. Why? Because it’s supposed to snow this weekend.
Although Lake Tahoe ski resorts have been making snow for several weeks, there’s nothing quite like the real thing.
Forecasters are calling for more than a foot of snow in upcoming storms, great signs for an Epic ski season.
Thanks to the earlier snow this week and what’s expected, two more Lake Tahoe ski resorts will be opening this week, bringing the total to eight open resorts.
Sierra-at-Tahoe will start running its lifts on Friday (Dec. 6) and Sugar Bowl ski resort will follow with its opening Saturday.
Natural snowfall and cold temperatures make for ideal snowmaking, allowing the best of Tahoe to continue to deliver the most open trails and lifts. Forecasters are calling for more than a foot of snow in upcoming storms, great signs for an Epic ski season.
“This cold snap and our unparalleled snowmaking systems paired with idyllic natural snow is putting our Tahoe resorts on top, offering the best conditions in the region,” said Senior Vice President Bill Rock, who oversees all three Tahoe resorts.
