Winter isn’t quite over yet in the Sierra. Since this springtime storm rolled through around 5 am on Monday morning, the upper mountain has seen 9 inches of snowfall. Yesterday’s high winds caused nearly all lifts to go on wind closure; today 18 lifts (6 at Alpine and 12 at Palisades) are on the schedule. We anticipate plenty of fresh tracks for skiers and riders on the mountain today. This storm brings our season snowfall total to 317 inches and our base depth to 83 inches on the upper mountain. While excitement around the spring snowfall is high, operations will not change significantly after this storm and we urge everyone on the mountain to ski and ride with caution; there are likely unmarked obstacles on the slopes.
The most current information about our operations can be found on our website and Palisades Tahoe App. There may be unmarked obstacles on the mountain and any amount of snowfall can result in difficult and potentially dangerous driving conditions. Guests should use the CalTrans QuickMap app to stay updated on road conditions.
