Need a Halloween costume? Try a snowsuit. With as-predicted El Niño weather patterns already bringing in the powder, Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe is slated to open as early as October 31. Two storms have covered Lake Tahoe with almost two feet of snow in the past week, and forecasts for the rest of the season are promising: Cold temperatures and big snow could keep the season raging through July. If this season measures up to the Little Boy's Sierra tour in 1998, snowfall could surpass 50 ft!
