Having never been to Tahoe, I have no idea what the weather is normally like there this time of year. But what's up with the 50 degree temps?! Is this typical? When does it usually cool down and snow? I'm coming in late January, so I don't think I have anything to worry about, but I'm just surprised that we have more snow and cold temps here in Ohio at this point. Glad to see Heavenly is at least open on the fake stuff. Any other resorts there open yet?

Thanks

    Having grown up in Tahoe, while I have gone skiing before Halloween some years, that is not the norm.

    Typically, the first snow fall around end of October.
    The first snow accumulation starts around Thanksgiving.
    The slopes open in December.

    However, the last years, this has been shifting later and later.
