Several ski resorts in the Eastern Sierra and Tahoe remained closed Tuesday because of a blizzard that dropped as much as three metres of snow in the biggest storm system so far this season.
The National Weather Service said “travel will be dangerous. Snowfall rates and winds will create periods of zero visibility.”
Ski operations at June Mountain in June Lake remained closed Tuesday, as did all runs at Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes. “We had so much snow it takes awhile to safely open the mountain,” spokesman Tim LeRoy said Monday.
Mammoth had received almost two metres of snow and was expecting. June Mountain already had received three metres of snow from the storm a lot more
Squaw Valley and Alpine resorts in the Tahoe reported no runs and no lifts open Tuesday. Sugar Bowl Resort reported only one open lift early Tuesday. But Homewood Mountain Resort reported four of eight lifts open.
Another 2-3 feet of snow brings the current storm total to 79-117”!
