On the Hill: Soul Skiing at Northstar
  • On the Hill, brought to you by the Tahoe Center for Orthopedics, brings you a video report showcasing Tahoe’s ski conditions every day.

    BreakdownJoin Tahoe ‘On the Hill’ reporter Matt Hardy (@tahoematthardy) for a morning run on this beautiful day at Northstar. 14 lifts spinning, 28 trails open (all groomed).

    Northstar’s official report: 0″ overnight, 1″ in last week

    Field report: Fresh groomers are making for a great surface. 

    Weather: Sunny and beautiful with temperatures warming in to the 50s.

    Liftline status: No lines at 9 a.m. Expect all resorts to gradually get more crowded as we progress towards holiday the weekend.

    Snowcast: We are only half way through January but this could be the driest four-month start to the Sierra snow season in recorded history.

    While there’s a glimmer of hope for some precipitation late next week, it’s only a glimmer. If that hope fades, we could be looking at another two weeks of dry weather, taking us through the end of the month.
