Skiers were jubilant in February when the snow pack improved at our Sierra ski resorts. HOLD ON before making the trek this week (March 13 to 18). The National Weather Service warns that there are over 8 feet to fall! The two storms blowing through Northern California are the kind that create alerts like, “Stay indoors” and “Avoid certain highways”.
Wind, rain, snow–that’s what you can expect. The heaviest rainfall is forecast for Thursday afternoon through Friday morning. The Sierra Nevada snowpack is up to 37 percent of its regular year-to-date pileup after heavy snowfall last week (2/26-3/4) . A National Weather Service meteorologist said that there’s “no big dry period where there’s a nice window of travel.” Hang in there, put off the ski trip for a few days. Good things come to those who wait–right?
