Reno to Tahoe Sat will likely need chains
Hello, you will have excellent skiing in Tahoe this weekend but make sure you have chains in case they are required for the mountain roads, even with a 4wd you need to carry chains as many times the restrictions are 4wd with snow tires or chains. We've been pounded with big storms lately -
: they keep coming and coming and coming - there have been chain controls in the mountains almost daily. Yesterday they were lifted by mid-morning on I-80. There is a big storm in the mountains right now and it looks like snow is in forecast through the weekend. Next week looks better - some sunshine in the forecast. Sorry I can't help with the moisture content as I have no idea.
I was at Mt Rose yesterday - lots of nice powder - you won't be disappointed.
Here's a couple of links, one to a webcam in Truckee and one to chain control page.http://www.magnifeye.com/http://safetravelusa.com/nv/
Have fun at Tahoe!
