Local News

OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. (KTXL) — Palisades Tahoe will open nearly one month early this season thanks to rare October snow. 

Officials said Palisades Tahoe will open Friday after receiving more than 3 feet of snow during last weekend’s record-breaking storm.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of our frontline staff and operations crews, skiers and riders in the Tahoe area will be able to have the unique experience of hitting the slopes for Halloween weekend.

The last time the resort opened in October was back in 2004, officials said. “This will mark one of the earliest openings in the resort’s history; this will be only the third time in 72 years of operation that the resort has opened in October.”

Palisades Tahoe will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday through Sunday, until daily operations start on Nov. 24.

Boreal will also open three weeks ahead of schedule on Friday, the location’s earliest opening in a decade.

The Castle Peak and Accelerator lifts will be operational starting at 10 a.m., and the parking lot will open at 9 a.m.

Officials said Boreal-Woodward will be open Wednesday through Sunday, until 6 p.m. On Nov. 19, operations will be seven days a week.

Other Tahoe ski resorts are also preparing to open their doors, with Heavenly expected to open on Nov. 19, Kirkwood on Dec. 3 and Homewood on Dec. 10.
