Tahoe ski resorts are reporting some nice three-day snow totals from the storms that have hit the region this week, setting up some great skiing and snowboarding for the President’s Day weekend.
The range of snow has been 15-28 inches from the two storms – the first one that started Thursday and the next one that began Saturday.
“The season totals this (Sunday) morning have bumped us back up to 77% of average for the date – not too shabby,” wrote Bryan Allegretto, California Snow Forecaster for OpenSnow.com.
