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

The closest major family resort to the Bay Area and Sacramento, Sierra-at-Tahoe is Lake Tahoe's best-kept secret. The resort's North facing location keeps the snow in great condition for days and with a variety of terrain to choose from the entire family or group of friends can find something to cater toward their ability. Sierra is one of the only resorts that offers beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain all accessible from the summit lift, allowing groups to ride together while still enjoying the runs they want to hit. Five backcountry gates keep expert skiers entertained for hours and give breathtaking views of Lake Tahoe along with quite, uncrowded lines you can't find at other resorts. With new terrain park features, access to backcountry terrain, and new adventure parks for kids, Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort has something to offer everyone. Sierra-at-Tahoe is Northern California's home away from home. At this resort, guests are greeted by name and treated like family. Located on Highway 50, Sierra is the closest major snowsports resort to San Francisco and Sacramento, yet it's just a stone's throw away from the glitz of South Lake Tahoe and a multitude of hotel and casino lodging options. Convenience, value and great service are just a few of the words that summarize Sierra. Another asset is the location of its slopes, which are wind-protected and cradle the fresh powder for days. Skiers and riders of all ability levels can easily find their niche here, whether it's exploring the never-ending tree skiing, cruising down a 2.5 mile beginner run from the summit or hucking themselves off a tabletop in one of the many terrain parks and pipes scattered throughout the mountain.
