Following the worst start to a ski season any one can remember, California ski resorts are finally getting some love.  “Winter is definitely back in the Eastern Sierra,” proclaimed Mammoth Mountain spokesman Tim LeRoy. “The new snow will allow the resort to open up the entire mountain; 100% of the terrain will be open this weekend for the first time this year!”

Up in Tahoe a reported 68 inches, or over 5 ½ feet of snow fell at Squaw Valley and 63 inches next door at Alpine Meadows. The new snow has added to base depths at both resorts and will allow both mountains to open new terrain and lifts.  Slated to run this week for the first time this season include Solitude chairlift at Squaw Valley, and Scott chair and Lake View at Alpine Meadows. It is also being reported that Siberia Express is slated to reopen at Squaw Valley.

On the south side of the lake at Heavenly, the weekend storm dumped over three feet of snow. The new snow will allow additional terrain is opening including guest favorites like Milky Way Bowl, Pinnacles and Upper Gunbarrel, with a total of 61 trails and 19 lifts.
