Tahoe Ski Resorts Close Due to Severe Weather Conditions

The snowfall and wind around Lake Tahoe is getting intense as the atmospheric river picked up steam overnight. The warmer storm will put a heavy layer of wet snow on top of a lighter snowpack, causing significant avalanche concerns throughout the region. With these concerns, on top of whiteout conditions due to wind, most (if not all) Tahoe ski resorts have closed on Friday, March 10. There will likely be additional closures on Saturday as well.

Here’s a list of Tahoe ski resorts closed today as of 9 am:

Palisades Tahoe – “Due to high avalanche danger and flooding on Olympic Valley Rd and Alpine Meadows Rd, Palisades Tahoe will not have any lift operations today and base lodges are closed.”

Sierra-at-Tahoe – “We pride ourselves on mountain operations that persevere through the storms while maintaining our high standards for safety, but with El Dorado County + the City of South Lake declaring a State of Emergency, the call was made to close tomorrow, Friday March 10 so we can help protect the things that matter most – you.”

Sugar Bowl – “Sugar Bowl will be closed today, 3/10, due to extreme winds and storm conditions.”

Heavenly – “Heavenly will be CLOSED tomorrow, March 10. Another atmospheric river storm system will start this afternoon and last through the weekend, with another round early next week. Both the City of South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado County have declared a State of Emergency and we want to do our part and support our community during this emergency situation.”

Northstar – “Northstar will be closed tomorrow, Friday March 10. An atmospheric river is heading our way this afternoon through Sunday.”

Kirkwood – “Kirkwood will not be open tomorrow, Friday March 10. Our team will be working everywhere we safely can just to maintain the mountain for future operations. At this time we do not know if we will be able to open on Saturday, and whenever we are able to operate again, expect delays to mountain operations.”

Boreal – “Due to wind, snow and rain, we will be suspending operations for the day.”

Diamond Peak – “Due to the ongoing extreme storm conditions, hazardous road conditions and flood danger, Diamond Peak will be closed today (Friday, March 10).”
