The "atomic bomb cyclone" hit Truckee good. Over 14 hours of solid rain yesterday turning to 2 feet of wet and heavy Sierra cement overnight. Thank you plow services for your efforts early season. Looks like we have the start to a good base this winter! ⁠

Did you know: When viewing an area badly burned by the Donner Ridge fire in 1960, Tahoe Donner founder, Jack Kirby believed the scorched area would be ideal for a downhill ski resort that appeals to beginners and intermediate skies. In 1972, the 220 acre-ski bowl with two double chairlifts along with the Donner Christy Inn day lodge, opened and was hailed as “the new place” to ski.
