Deciphering a ski report
December 20, 2010 1:34 PM Subscribe
I am new at skiing this year. I have access to a ski resort by Truckee in California. I have been skiing mostly the green trails but some of the easiest blue trails as well. I have trouble figuring out what the snow weather report means to decide what might be acceptable to me as a new skier. Can you please help me decipher the following snow report?
