Winter Is On Its Way!


Thanks to last week’s incredible rain and snowfall, the High Sierra is capped with its first winter white.  Hopefully, it is a reflection of things to come ...

While we’re talking about the start of good things to come, we’ve included this list of neighboring resorts who have set the following tentative opening dates.

  • Mt Rose Ski Tahoe October 31
  • Boreal Mountain Resort November 4
  • Squaw/Alpine November 11
  • Sugar Bowl November 18
  • Northstar California November 18
  • Kirkwood November 18
  • Heavenly November 18
  • Donner Ski Ranch December 3
  • Tahoe Donner December 9
  • Homewood December 9
  • Soda Springs December 15
  • Diamond Peak December 15


Close to home, Diamond Peak is preparing for another great season and have set a tentative opening date of December 15th.   And what a year it will be as our local resort celebrates its 50th Anniversary all season long.

There’s plenty of festivities being planned as we speak.  They are seeking stories of yesteryear, photos of good times gone by, and helping hands to volunteer off and on throughout the season.  If you have something special to share or time to spare, visit this special section on their website for all of the details.

See you on the slopes and at the celebrations!
