Tahoe received a second round of September snow on Sept. 16 that created a frenzy for Tahoe powder hounds like Christmas morning spurring talking of opening dates and dreams of powder stashes yet to come for the 2019-20 season. (The first snow of the season was at Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe on Sept. 10; Mt. Rose is eying an Oct. 25 opening day.)

While much of the snow was gone by Sept. 17, visions of more powder continues with higher elevations expecting additional snowfalls with upcoming rain (and snow) in the forecast in the coming days.

For those of you dreaming of ski days ahead, here’s a roundup of anticipated resort opening days; conditions permitted.
