Resort Closures

Sierra at Tahoe, Donner Ski Ranch, Kirkwood and more, check resort webpages before you leave! It’s hard to find good web cams that aren’t iced over, but the cam at Dodge Ridge above says it all.  Looks like a yard of snow on those tables.  The flow continues.


Lake Tahoe Winter Storm Warning until 4pm 

Temps low 20’s with light winds 6-10

Snow continues today with an additional 6-12 for resorts along the crest and generally 4-8 for the rest.  Today is the day to get out if you can find an open resort.  Check resort websites before you go.




The snow totals have tempered a bit, with the energy level downgraded.  That being said we will have cold temps and bad conditions today.  Expect 4-8 for Alta and Snowbird, with slightly less for Brighton 3-5 and Park City 2-4 range.  Winds will be strong with gusts near 50 mph and sub-zero wind chills.  

Monday Best time to Ride

The storm continues thru the day with 3-5 likely for Alta, Snowbird, and Brighton with 2-4 for Park City.  Winds will be light from 5-10 mph and temperatures will be in the mid teens.


We are starting to get some storm numbers.  Right now, it looks like the best snow will be in the northern to central mountains, with storm totals in the 12-20 range, with 8-12 range near Vail/Beaver Creek.  Southern mountains of Telluride and Silverton 8-12, west ranges of Powderhorn 4-6.  Temperatures will start off warm and drop to the low 20’s by Tuesday.  Light winds.

I will update this afternoon.
