Weekend storm dumps on local ski resorts

A holiday weekend storm dropped up to 24 inches of new snow at North Tahoe resorts and cold temperatures have kept the snow “light and fluffy.” More snow showers are expected later in the week. First-timers can take part in the popular Learn to Ski or Ride this weekend, for $20.

With snowmaking still going full force, resorts expect to open more terrain through the week. Sugar Bowl opened Mt. Disney over the weekend and now has six lifts open.

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe has announced it will open the Chutes on Jan. 8. They currently have five lifts running.

Squaw Valley USA has 15 lifts in operation and boasts 44-inches of snow at upper mountain. They offer skiing for all abilities and the Mountain Run is now open. Alpine Meadows also offers top-to-bottom skiing with five lifts running and a 30-inch depth at the base.

Northstar-at-Tahoe has seven lifts and 34 runs open.

Homewood Mountain Resort announced Dec. 10 as their opening day, coinciding with their annual Ho Ho Homewood Toy Drive. Diamond Peak’s opening day is Dec. 16.

Learn to Ski or Ride includes an all-day beginner lift ticket, lessons and gear rental for $20 this Saturday and Sunday.
