Twelve inches of snow fell at Northstar’s summit overnight and with 10 inches recorded at mid-mountain, mountain managers say the snow is setting a solid base for the ski season, less than a month away.
“Winter is here,” said Director of Mountain Operations Jim Larmore. “The conditions are allowing us to start making snow a little earlier than we’d planned to. We’re firing up the snowmaking guns today to compliment the natural snow this storm has brought so we can take full advantage of our systems.”
Northstar has the largest snowmaking system on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. Scheduled to open Friday, November 22, skiers and riders can look forward to the resort’s reliable early season conditions.
Snowfall is predicted to continue throughout today and tomorrow, with a winter storm advisory in effect throughout the day in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Those who haven’t yet bought a season pass can still do so at NorthstarCalifornia.com. Featuring the best season pass deal in Lake Tahoe, the Tahoe Local Pass is currently priced at only $479. A wide variety of pass options at Vail Resorts are still currently available.
Bring it on winter!
