Two North Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts Open, Three to Join This Week

North Lake Tahoe Resorts Opening Weeks Ahead of Schedule


(North Lake Tahoe, Calif./Nev.) November 10, 2015 – A powerful early season storm has brought over two feet of snow to the North Lake Tahoe region where Boreal Mountain Resort and Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe are already spinning lifts daily for skiing and riding. By the end of the week Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows and Northstar California will join the roster of open resorts.

The recent snowstorms have entered the region consistently throughout the past week leaving most areas in the region with over two feet of snow, the most recent storm Monday night has left ski resorts with six to eight inches of powder. Cold weather conditions have allowed ski resorts to use snowmaking systems consistently bolstering snow pack and allowing for additional terrain to be opened.

Alpine Meadows Resort – Opening Thur. Nov. 12

Boreal Mountain Resort – Open

Diamond Peak – Dec. 10

Homewood – Dec. 11
