Let the Winter Stoke Begin
It’s hard to believe that in a few short weeks, we’ll be dusting off our winter gear and hitting the slopes. There is nothing quite like the buzz of anticipation as the snow begins to stick and we wait for the winter season to begin. Weather experts are predicting an El Niño with an above-average snowfall for the 23/24 season. After the last season, I think we're all geared up for big winters, so we say - bring it on.
To get the stoke started, we’ve compiled a list of most of the ski resorts in the Tahoe Basin’s opening dates and info:
Mt. Rose is typically the first resort to open in the Tahoe Basin due to its higher base elevation and the early snowfall patterns that tend to benefit this area of Lake Tahoe. With little snow on the horizon, it's hard to believe they could open next week but, with extensive snow-blowing capabilities, it may just be possible.
Boreal Mountain, known for their terrain park and night skiing is another earlier season opener.
With its closer proximity to the Bay Area and the family-friendly environment, this is a great mountain to get reacquainted with your ski legs.
