Lake Tahoe ski resorts receive layer of snow, a little more coming?

Snow fell from the sky Monday all around the Lake Tahoe Basin and coated the ski areas in a layer of white and another dusting may be on the way.

Resorts posted photographs Monday from the summer snow and first real cold storm of the season.

The opening dates for resorts are still several weeks away, with Heavenly Mountain Resort opening Nov. 22, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows on Nov. 15, Kirkwood Mountain Resort on Nov. 27, Diamond Peak on Dec. 12 weather permitting and Sierra-at-Tahoe is still unannounced but open typically in mid-to-late November.

Mt. Rose will be the first resort open in the basin with plans to run the lifts on Oct. 26.

The National Weather Service forecasts more precipitation for Lake Tahoe on Wednesday and another possible coating of snow in the evening into Thursday.

There is a 40% chance on Wednesday and 30% on Thursday.
