As rain fell Monday morning on Sacramento, the Lake Tahoe area—with six days still left of summer—saw its first snowfall of the 2019-20 season.
A storm that rolled across the Sierra in late morning produced some snow at the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadow ski resort’s upper elevations, and a few flakes at the base area. The upper mountain of Squaw Valley sits at roughly 8,000 feet in elevation.
The ski area is scheduled to open for the 2019-20 ski season on November 15, 2019, weather permitting. Monday’s snowfall came just 70 days since the resort closed for the 2018-19 season on July 7, 2019.
A little over 100 days ago was the last snowfall Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows received.
