From Greg D.:
Hi Mark – thanks for sending this one. Here are photos from our local ski park on Mount Shasta http://skipark.com/the-mountain/cams which illustrate the issue – it looks like summer on most parts of the area up here. It’s cold, but it hasn’t rained in weeks (months?), and each time there is a forecast of weather it dissipates. We were supposed to have snow showers today/tomorrow, then snow on Tuesday, and it has now slipped to Thursday. Who knows what it will be by tomorrow.
Over in the North Lake Tahoe area it’s not a lot better.
Heavenly Valley in South Lake Tahoe seems to have a bit greater snow making operations.
