The Spring Skiing Capital will be open again this weekend, with lifts scheduled to spin 9am-4pm on Friday, May 6th, Saturday, May 7th, and Sunday, May 8th. We also have snow in the forecast for midweek, with cold temperatures that should help preserve our existing snowpack. The big updates this week are that Wa She Shu and Mountain Run are now closed, so expect to download instead of skiing back to the base area. Full details are below.
- It will be windy on Friday. Expect ridge lifts to be impacted. There is a very slight chance for snow showers. Today the wind gusts were in the high 80 miles-per-hour range, and we expect even higher gusts for tomorrow.
- Saturday will be sunny and clear with a high of 46 degrees F. Winds could persist throughout the day.
- On Sunday, expect sun for the morning, but by the afternoon there is a chance of snow with a possible accumulation of one inch.

Lift, Terrain & Conditions Updates
- On Friday and possibly Saturday, lifts will likely be impacted by high winds in the forecast. If we think lifts will be delayed or impacted either morning, we will make the call early and post information on our Mountain Operations Twitter account.
- On the schedule for this weekend are the Funitel, the Aerial Tram, Siberia, Gold Coast, Shirley, Big Blue, Bailey’s Beach, Mountain Meadow, Granite Chief, and possibly Solitude. There is a chance that this could be the last weekend for Granite Chief, so get your turns in.
- Belmont is now closed for the season. We have all of our terrain park efforts focused on Gold Coast through next weekend. We will be repurposing the snow from Belmont and using it elsewhere on the upper mountain as well.
- Wa She Shu is closed for the season.
- Mountain Run is CLOSED for skiing. You must download the Aerial Tram or the Funitel to return to The Village at Palisades Tahoe.
- There is a Ski Teams camp taking place on 5th Tree off of Shirley. Please be respectful of their space.
