As snow returns to the Sierra, ski resorts are itching to open their slopes.
After last year’s especially long season that lasted well into the summer, resort operators are hoping for another wet winter. Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe became the first resort to open a trail at the end of October, but closed again after a weekend.
There’s a slight chance of snow showers Sunday in Truckee and the possibility of precipitation continues into Monday, according to the National Weather Service.
