Lake Tahoe Ski Resorts Gear Up for Season

Posted: Updated:

Some Lake Tahoe-area ski resorts have been busy making snow and say they don't plan to delay their scheduled openings despite recent temperatures more favorable for golf than skiing.

Temperatures across the region have been in the 60s to near 70 degrees and are expected to remain warm at least through Tuesday.

But overnight lows have been near or below freezing, making it possible to crank up snow cannons and begin covering the slopes with man-made snow.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (http://on.rgj.com/1cPh6K3 ) Squaw Valley plans to open Nov. 27. Alpine Meadows is targeting Dec. 13.

Heavenly Ski Resort started making snow Oct. 28 and will continue through the expected opening date of Nov. 22.
