California Storm Brings Powder To Mountains & Ski Resorts
A November storm that has been delivering rain to California and even caused flight delays out of San Francisco’s airport and knocked out power throughout the Bay Area is being welcomed by Western ski resorts.
One of these areas is Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, just a three-hour drive from San Francisco. It received eight inches of snow on Monday and more on Tuesday. With cold temperatures the resort is also making snow and will continue to do so as conditions permit up to Sqaw’s opening on Thanksgiving weekend.
Alpine Meadows is scheduled to open on Nov. 11.
The resort is also now selling the Tahoe Super Pass, starting at $429 for adults, which provides access both Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows.
Squaw Valley North Lake Tahoe features 42 lifts and 270 trails and has the European-style Village at Squaw Valley with nearly 60 bars, restaurants and shops.
Snowfall averages 450 inches, providing one of the longest ski and snowboard seasons in Lake Tahoe.
