Following a night of extreme winds throughout Northern California, Tahoe ski resorts are closing today due to wind danger.
Tuesday morning saw a full list of ski resorts announcing their closure for the day due to windy conditions. Here is a running list of resorts which will be closed on Tuesday, January 19, all on the south shore:
- Heavenly Mountain Resort
- Kirkwood Mountain Resort
Meanwhile, on the north side of the lake, resorts aren’t fully closed but they are experiencing a lot of lifts on wind hold. Most lifts at Squaw Valley, Sugar Bowl and Northstar Mountain Resort currently sit on a wind hold. It is unclear when they will reopen.
Damage has been reported throughout NorCal since winds reached 91 mph on Monday night. Yosemite National Park has closed for the day and downed power lines have cut power throughout the Bay Area.
