The snow keeps piling up and as a result more terrain is opening at the three Vail Resorts in Lake Tahoe.
The popular Lake Tahoe ski resorts have all benefited from a recent series of storms that have really kick-started the 2018-19 season.

Including the scenic gondola, which transports skiers, riders and guests on foot from street level, the resort is operating seven lifts, accessing a diverse array of trails.
Heavenly runs from the top of the gondola include The Big Easy, California Trail, Aries, alongside 17 intermediate to advanced trails on the Nevada side of the resort.
Northstar California: Located in Truckee, the family-friendly resort is open top-to-bottom, spinning Comstock Express chairlift, which provides access to the Mt. Pluto summit and more than 23 trails in that area.
The resort is currently operating nine lifts and 36 trails from the summit all the way down to Village Run.
Terrain for beginners to experts is available including Easy Street, East Ridge and Grouse Alley trails. Man-made additions include three terrain parks with 20 features for multiple ability levels and two Kids Adventure Zones.
