Ready, set, go! Lake Tahoe’s Alpine Meadows to open this Saturday

Lake Tahoe’s Alpine Meadows joins the party this Saturday.  The ski resort will open at 9am with two chairs running: Roundhouse high speed quad & Meadow double.

Alpine Meadows general manager Kent Hoopingarner said, “The Alpine Meadows snowmaking team has taken advantage of the cold temperatures throughout the past month to prepare for opening day.  The cold weather has also helped the mountain retain the natural snowfall from storms leading up to opening day.”

Truckee resident and Jamaican Ski Team (of one) member Errol Kerr has been training at his home mountain for the past week (picture above with Homey on the right).  On Saturday, the rest of us are allowed in on the fun.

Should be a great opening day for the Tahoe ski resort with sunny skies in the forecast.  By Sunday night, a storm is forecasted to roll through and bring snow through Tuesday.
