Mother Nature put to the test Sierra Nevada resorts and their snow-making capabilities during the month of January, which went down as one of the driest on record.

After waiting out the month-long dry spell ” milking thin natural bases while bolstering base depths with man-made snow ” Tahoe-area resorts were treated to a dumping this past weekend, with resorts reporting anywhere between 18 and 65 inches of fresh snow.
