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)

Mt. Rose got a slope-blanketing wallop a couple of days ahead of Thanksgiving. Is it open "top to bottom"? You betcha.

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.
