On the Hill: Ride along down Northstar's Drifter

On the Hill, brought to you by the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics, brings you a video report showcasing Tahoe's ski conditions every day.

Breakdown: Join Tahoe 'On the Hill' reporter Matt Hardy (@tahoematthardy) for a run down Drifter on the backside at Northstar from a unique third-person perspective. There are 14 lifts spinning, 28 trails open (all groomed).

Northstar's official report: 0" overnight, 0" in last week

Field report: About 1/8 inch of snow overnight breaks the month long drought. Fresh groomers are making for a good surface. It was much softer today that it was the whole week.

Weather: Partly cloudy with temperatures warming in to the 40s.

Liftline status: No lines.

Snowcast: A storm moving in on Sunday that may produce 1-3 inches in the mountains. Pray for snow!
