Tahoe - Mammoth
Oct 20, 2017 - 5am - It is snowing now in Tahoe and Mammoth, plus all areas in between, as a strong and cold low pressure system moves through. It looks like a few inches or so of snow have fallen in Truckee and many areas around Lake Tahoe, with 4 to 7 inches on mid and upper resort mountain areas. It looks like 8 to 12 inches of snow have fallen along the Sierra Crest above 8,000 feet.

After a week+ of sunny and milder weather for most of the rest of October, as the east coast gets its turn at some showery weather, we expect unsettled weather, low pressure, and snow for Tahoe to return the last couple days of October into early November. We will have to watch for closed low pressure systems at this time, which sometimes mean big snows (and rain) further south across southern California. CM

We have the highest base elevation for any major ski resort in the Lake Tahoe area. Kirkwood also has the most snowfall this season for any resort in the Sierra. The mountain is often frequented by pro riders and skiers because the terrain is the most diverse of the local ski resorts. You can spend the day turning down a groomed run, shooting the half pipes, jibs, and rails in our terrain parks, bombing down a hair raising steep thick with untracked powder, or hucking yourself off a cornice at the peak. Whatever your preference, Kirkwood can accomodate it. Named one of the top 10 over all resorts in TransWorld Snow, Kirkwood is truly a Tahoe “must ski/ride.” Offering Lake Tahoe’s highest base elevation for some of North America’s deepest, driest snow. 2,300 acres of wide-open terrain promises something for everyone, from gentle groomed trails to hair-raising steeps and chutes. The resort was rated amongst the top 10 places to learn to ski by USA today and offers innovative First-Time Skier and Snowboarding programs on its wide, gentle slopes. The Children’s Center makes skiing more convenient for families and fun for kids.
