Managers from the Donner Ski Ranch and Squaw Valley said on Thursday's Insight that a good amount of snow is falling in the mountains, which bodes well for skiers and snowboarders in the coming days.
Officials are warning of winter weather conditions on the roads and a number of schools were shut down for the day.
The overnight snowfall could also improve results for a snow survey taking place Thursday.
5-7 inches of snow overnight! 3-5 inches expected today. Come on up and get some turns! http://t.co/0OY0ZxcdDg— Sugar Bowl Resort (@sugarbowlresort) January 30, 2014
