Ski resorts: New runs and lifts open for the weekend

LAKE TAHOE “-North and West Shore ski resorts got a huge boost in rideable terrain following the winter storm system that dumped more than 3 feet of snow earlier this week, with more snow on its way.

Boreal Mountain Resort has been beefing up their terrain park features since the snow fell, building small features for the Kids X Park, a three-jump line in its Lower Night Park, and extensive rail features for their jib line, also in Lower Night Park. And according to Boreal spokesman John Slaughter, the superpipe is coming next week.

Sugar Bowl is expected to be in full operation mode by Saturday, according to John Monson, Director of Marketing.

Northstar-at-Tahoe was able to open the top of their mountain as a result of the new snow. The resort is planning to be open top-to-bottom, front-to-back, when Backside and Lookout Mountain open Saturday.

Alpine Meadows, which has been closed the past few days, has let the snow pile up in preparation for their Friday re-opening. Four feet was reported at the summit on Thursday. Expect even more snow Friday.

Homewood Mountain Resort has yet again pushed its opening day back. The resort is now planning to drop its ropes on Dec. 24.
