TRUCKEE, Calif. — Skiers and snowboarders in the Sierra woke up on Saturday to fresh snow after a powerful storm in the region.
Forecasters said even mountain peaks in the San Francisco Bay Area could get snow as temperatures fall this weekend.
Boreal Mountain Resort atop Donner Summit in Truckee reported between 36 and 40 inches of snow during the 24-hour period that ended at 6 a.m. Saturday.
Sierra at Tahoe and other resorts reported about the same, said Karl Swanberg, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.
“We’re just really, really thrilled,” said Rachael Woods, a spokeswoman for Homewood Mountain resort on Lake Tahoe.
