The early winter storms flooding Northern California the past couple of weeks have given some snow to the mountains… A lot of snow. Tahoe and Mammoth resorts have already enjoyed incredible powder days on their mountains and now, Far NorCal’s mountain’s getting involved in the fun.
Mt. Shasta Ski Park has announced it will open its slopes on Wednesday, December 12th, marking a major occasion for the ski resort that had trouble receiving enough snow to stay open during the 2017/2018 season. Right now, reports show the top of Douglas to have over 3 feet of snowpack, more than enough for some epic mid-season conditions.
