SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif./Nev. — A series of winter storms rolled into the Sierra over the past few days dropping 3-4 feet of powder at Tahoe South (tahoesouth.com/) resorts followed by sunny skies.

With chairs turning at Heavenly Mountain Resort, Sierra-at-Tahoe and Kirkwood Mountain Resort, the storms put a heavy blanket on Lake Tahoe mountainsides giving skiers and boarders plenty to celebrate as the season kicks into high gear in time for the holidays.

“The momentum these storms carried with them was spectacular and is exactly what we asked Santa for this season,” said Carol Chaplin, executive director of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority. “One by one they covered every acre at our resorts — effectively telling the world that Mother Nature has taken charge of Tahoe South.”

A fleet of city and state snow removal vehicles around the Lake Tahoe Basin will be keeping the roads clear and safe for travel. Caltrans has current California road conditions at dot.ca.gov or 1-800-427-ROAD (7623) or 916-445-7623. For road conditions in Nevada, contact the Nevada Department of Transportation at nevadadot.com or 877-687-6237. Travelers can also get up-to-the-minute online road information and more on their smart phones at NV.mobi.
