The Lake Tahoe area was experiencing record-breaking consecutive snowfall following two storms over the past week. Multiple ski resorts there were closed, leaving many to wonder whether they would re-open in time for the holiday weekend.

A blizzard warning was first issued early Monday evening, and heavy snowfall has kept about a dozen resorts shuttered. Heavy rain caused flooding in parts of California as well as Nevada, including Carson City and Reno, the Associated Press reported Wednesday. Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe, California, was open as of Thursday morning despite receiving four feet of snow, according to a weather table. Lifts on the resort, however, were not in service.

But for the most part, power losses and avalanche warnings have kept resorts closed, according to the Sacramento Bee. Schools in the Incline Village in the Lake Tahoe area were closed Monday and Tuesday.

The blizzard first touched down in Lake Tahoe Monday night, the AP reported. Kirkwood Mountain has also reported four feet of snowfall, with Squaw Valley Ski Resort and Northstar Resort following just behind with 42 inches. Sierra-at-Tahoe and Diamond Peak both reported two feet of snow and Sugar Bowl Ski Resort received one foot.

Heavy rainfall also touched down in the Reno area. Rain in the southeast Reno area reached about 2.25 inches of rain from Tuesday evening through early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Resorts that remain closed include Donner Ski Ranch, Soda Springs, Boreal Mountain Resort, Homewood Mountain Ski Resort, Tahoe Donner, Mountain Rose Ski resort, Sugar Bowl, Diamond Peak, Sierra-at-Tahoe, Northstar, Squaw Valley Ski Resort and Kirkwood Mountain.

For Thursday, the winter storm warning remained in place. The snowfall was expected to continue with an estimated three to five inches more to accumulate, the National Weather Service reported. Chances of snowfall decrease significantly by Friday afternoon and evening.
