Your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Snow is piling up on the lower reaches of Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe.
Whether it will be enough to meet an ambitious Oct. 27 opening date for skiers and snowboarders remains to be seen.
The ski area started producing snow last week and will continue as conditions permit.
The resort needs a packed base that’s at least 10-inches deep in order to open, said marketing director Mike Pierce.
