It’s Monday morning in Northern California and the cold, wet storm is dumping snow the mountains. Many Tahoe ski resorts used the early snowfall to reopen, following very brief openings after the historic late-October storm. Soon it may be Mt. Shasta Ski Park’s turn to get in on the opening action, with the storm currently POUNDING the mountain with multiple feet of snow.
The initial forecast called for Mount Shasta to receive approximately 4 feet of snow and it sure looks like it’s going to hit that mark. The snow began falling early and often this weekend and webcams shows that the Mt. Shasta Ski Park will have a nice foundation of snowpack later this week.
