Lake Tahoe gets hit with early storm, Heavenly fires up snowguns

The Lake Tahoe region is getting some of this early winter storming as well, check out the photos from Heavenly and Kirkwood for proof. They got between 14-24 inches in the past couple days, and with more cold weather in the forecast they’ve fired up the snowguns for the 2012-2013 season. Looks like winter is coming! The winter outlook is pretty good at this point.
