Good Evening my friends,
Glass’o’Red in hand winding down a good day on the mountain…

#StokeLevelBeginsToRise as the NWS forecast is looking much more aligned with a series of storms headed our way…
NWS has a Winter Weather Advisory for snow remains in effect for the Western Sierra Slope with snow levels down around 2500’-3000’ ft. Snow accumulations will range around 2”-4" at Lake level with up to 6" at the upper elevations of the Sierra…

The wet pattern continues as additional waves of precipitation arrive Thursday into Saturday. The main difference is that snow levels are expected to rise significantly by Thursday evening. The Sierra will likely see heavier precipitation with these additional waves but snow impacts will be limited to the higher elevations...around 6000’ ft and above.

Timber Creek will open this Saturday for the season with our Timber Creek Express (Chair 7) and Bunny (Chair 9) Snow has been skiing / riding quite well my friends and with the new snow forecast it will only get better…

It started with becoming aware. A homeless community member on the streets near our homes.
Why was he dressed in just a t-shirt and jeans on this bitterly cold winter’s day?
We were 11 years old, and that day we resolved to find a way to help this man and others like him.
We were both avid downhill ski racers, and one day during practice, we went to the lost and found to look for a hat we had misplaced. There we observed a huge pile of unclaimed warm coats, hats, gloves and scarves. We impulsively asked the ski resort if we could give the unclaimed warm clothing to the homeless in our community, and in 2011, Warm Winters was born!
Since starting with a partnership with 1 ski resort, we have now expanded to 30 ski resorts in 12 states, and have helped 10,000 people experiencing homelessness.
In the process, we have learned a lot. We’ve learned that solving homelessness is a complex issue. We’ve learned that youth can truly make a difference in the world, and that by partnering with ski resorts, other charities, corporations and individuals, we can power our efforts and expand our capacity. Winters has grown into a national movement of passionate youth, and together we are committed to change the lives of the homeless!
In the next five years, we will train 5,000 youth to help 50,000 homeless.
It’s really easy to make a difference in the lives of the homeless, and we can show you how! Contact us for more information!
