Caltrans says Highway 89 around Emerald Bay is open after a snow slide happened near Eagle Point Campground on Tuesday. CHP says no cars were hit. 

A snow slide was reported just before 11:30 a.m. Caltrans says the slide was up to 15 feet deep in some spots and about 160 feet long.

A colder system will drop in Friday night with heavier and lower elevation snow. The biggest travel impacts for mountain travelers will likely be Friday night, according to the National Weather Service’s Sacramento office. 

The storm is expected to continue into Saturday and bring up to 18 inches of new snow to Echo Summit. Motorists should be prepared for winter driving conditions and expect chain control checkpoints on U.S. Highway 50 and Interstate 80. Additional travel time should be anticipated.
