Lake Tahoe ski resorts are touting a foot of new snow Tuesday morning, and with several more feet of snow in the forecast later this week, resorts, riders and skiers will likely have more to celebrate.

A winter storm watch set to take effect Wednesday evening could translate to 3-5 feet of snow above 7,000 feet and “a couple” feet of snow at 6,000 feet through Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service. Even lower elevations could see a foot of snow.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high temperature of 31 degrees in South Lake Tahoe and a high of 27 degrees in Incline Village.

Monday’s storm brought 10 inches of snow in 24 hours at Sierra-at-Tahoe’s summit, according to the resort. Kirkwood Mountain Resort reported 14 inches of new snow in 24 hours and Heavenly Mountain Resort reported 13 inches Tuesday morning.

Diamond Peak Ski Resort reported 6 inches of new snow in 24 hours.
