Snow Reporter's Message

THURS FEB 29 11:00AM:

As storm intensity and wind speeds have increased impacting all surface and aerial lifts, we will be closing the mountain and all lifts at 12PM today, Thursday FEB. 29. With two waves of the storm forecasted to hit in the next 36 hours and winds forecasted at over 100 MPH with snow totals of 2-5 feet, Sierra will remain closed on Friday, March 1, to preserve the safety of our guests + employees. During this time, essential Mountain Operation teams will be actively working to dig out, de-ice, and begin snow safety work as conditions allow, to re-open the resort as soon as we see what Mother Nature delivers. Stay tuned in here for updates as the storm rolls through and get hyped — this is the storm we have been waiting for all season, so set your sights on the days ahead + be ready to go deep! 

THURS FEB 29 5:15AM:

Today, you can expect temperatures around 36 and scattered snow showers, with the snow getting heavier after 10AM. Winds are supposed to pick up as the snow starts to fly, which may cause wind holds on upper mountain lifts. Make sure you’re checking here for the latest updates.

This next storm is forecasted to move in this afternoon, so if you’re joining us today, make sure you’re prepared for winter conditions during the drive home. Snow totals have remained consistent, with NOAA calling for 20-30” in the next 24hrs and 5-8’ over the next 4 days! This much snow is likely to cause delays while our mountain ops teams complete avalanche mitigation, de-icing, and digging out, but your patience will be well-rewarded with safe skiing in the deepest snow of the season. Not only will this storm bring us a few amazing days of storm skiing - it will also help fill in every part of the mountain, leaving the mountain prime for playing and setting us up for an incredible spring season. Get ready Sierra fam! It’s going to be deep!

WEDS FEB 28 4:30PM:

With just under 24 hours til the ‘storm of the season’ arrives, it looks like this one is going to live up to the hype👏

This storm is coming in strong, cold, in waves and DEEP with models agreeing and forecasts ranging from 5-8 feet at Sierra over the next 3 days 👀

Looking at the strength of this storm + taking a note from the playbook last year, we have made the decision to proactively CLOSE OPERATIONS for Friday, 3/1 to preserve the safety of our guests + employees during the most intense wave of the storm. This storm will be high winds, cold temps, and snow levels as low as 2,000 feet which will significantly impact travel, road conditions + visibility with Caltrans already preparing for significant delays and closures throughout the storm. 

Tomorrow (Thursday) we plan to start the day with normal operations but anticipate that if winds come in as forecasted, they will begin to affect lift operations as the storm rolls in. Come prepared if you are trying to get first tracks during the first wave of the storm, pack your car, gear and patience appropriately.

Essential Mountain Operation teams will be hunkered down to ride out + mitigate the snow as it comes, with an active approach to continually dig out, de-ice, and begin snow safety work as conditions allow. Sierra-at-Tahoe Road will be closed on Friday to allow our teams to work around the clock on clearing snow—please do not attempt to camp out for Saturday as your efforts will not be rewarded this time around. If the storm follows the forecast, our current plan is to re-open on Saturday (likely mid-day) as snow safety and mitigation is completed, starting first with the lower mountain lifts and working our way up the mountain.

This is just the storm we have been waiting for all season, so get ready, prep your car/gear/crew because this storm is going to fill in every nook n’ cranny setting us up to be riding pow all week with incredible conditions into Spring.
