On the Hill: Ride Along Down Northstar's Drifter
  • On the Hill, brought to you by the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics, brings you a video report showcasing Tahoe’s ski conditions every day.

    Today’s activity: Join Tahoe ‘On the Hill’ reporter Matt Hardy (@tahoematthardy) for a run down Drifter on the backside at Northstar from a unique third-person perspective. There are 14 lifts spinning, 28 trails open (all groomed).

    Northstar official report: 0″ new snow overnight, 0″ in last week

    Field report: About 1/8 inch of snow overnight breaks the month long drought. Fresh groomers are making for a good surface. It was much softer today that it was the whole week.

    Weather: Partly cloudy with temperatures warming in to the 40s.

    Liftline status: No lines. 

    Snowcast: A storm moving in on Sunday that may produce 1-3 inches in the mountains. Pray for snow!
