Lake Tahoe is currently under a Winter Storm Warming—and has been for days—that's resulting in nearly all of its ski resorts temporarily shutting down. Aside from expecting up to a foot of more snow at some higher elevations in the area, you can also count on strong winds with speeds reaching 40 mph near the Sierra Ridge (a popular skiing destination).

Most resorts in the area shut down on Tuesday and plan to wait out the storm (which is expected to clear up Thursday night). The past few days has brought up to 200 inches of snow to some areas of the mountain.

Some resorts are expecting to open back up to skiers today with delays. If you planned on spending the long weekend enjoying the fresh powder, your best bet for salvaging your trip is to keep a close eye on resort social media accounts or call for more information.
