The latest storm system brought some much needed snow to the Sierra this past weekend. The next snow window will be this Wednesday, the day before the long Thanksgiving weekend.
I skied last Friday at Northstar and had a good time. The manmade snow was fine. Keep your expectations low and you will have a good time.Base, lift, run status:
