TOO MUCH SNOW CLOSES SKI RESORTS

 

Instead of bringing delight to skiers and snowboarders eager for fresh powder, the intense snowstorms that buried the mountains of California and Nevada under up to 10 feet of snow this week instead caused several winter resorts to close.

The massive amount of snow combined with high winds and road closures on Wednesday again shut down the Woodward Tahoe Ski Area in California, which referred to the storm as #Snowpocalypse2017.

Nine feet of snow in three days also shuttered California’s Kirkwood Mountain Resortin California, and road closures and other complications from the storm likewise left Nevada’s Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe not welcoming the normal stream of winter enthusiasts.
