Nature checked its calendar and saw that many a Thanksgiving vacationer will be in Tahoe to ski. The result? A huge storm and lots of snow just ahead of Turkey Day. (Pictured: Diamond Peak on Nov. 24)
The plump flakes have been building all November long, as seen in this shot of Homewood earlier in the month. Opening day is Dec. 11.

The Sugar Bowl is looking positively sugary, too. It's turning out to be a Thanksgiving Week to remember at the mountain play places in and around Lake Tahoe. Just check the roads before you go, snow bunnies.
