Submitted on 11/15/13 | by Lindsey Carlson

There is snow on the ground in Lake Tahoe and the ski resorts are starting to open. An early season snowfall in October got things started and temperatures have remained cold enough for snow-making equipment to pump out more white stuff and build up the base.

Boreal (as usual) opened first on November 1st. Here is an updated list of the Lake Tahoe ski report opening dates for 2013 – 2014 ski season. Happy trails.
