First storm dumps over 1 foot of snow at Lake Tahoe ski resorts

The view at Upper Dynamite Wednesday morning.

Some Lake Tahoe ski resorts are reporting over 1 foot of snow Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours into several days of winter storms.

Snow started falling late Tuesday morning and continued throughout the day. After a brief break, snowfall picked back up Wednesday morning.

Here are the 24-hour totals reported by resorts in the South Lake Tahoe and Incline Village areas:

Kirkwood Mountain Resort reports 14 inches.

Sierra-at-Tahoe reports 14 inches at its base and 18 inches at its summit.

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe reports 13-15 inches.

Diamond Peak Ski Resort reports 12 inches of snow.

Heavenly Mountain Resort reports 7 inches of snow.

With the heaviest snowfall expected later tonight, the day 1 snow totals could be a mild foreshadowing of what is to come.
