Mountain snow is expected to begin late Wednesday through Thursday night across the Sierra.

Most of the northern and central Sierra will see between 5 to 10 inches of snow fall by Friday morning, with as much as 20 inches possible locally at higher elevations.

Snow will fall above 6,000 feet, according to the NWS. Travel delays are likely on Highway 50 and Interstate 80, where snow could result in significant reduction to visibility near the summit. Chain controls are possible.

The NWS has issued a winter storm watch, in place from the start of Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday.

Gardner Mountain

South Lake Tahoe Welcome Sign

Located at South Lake Tahoe, Gardner Mountain is loved by its residents due to its location to nearby shops, Raley’s grocery store and the proximity by bike to local trails, the beach and Fallen Leaf Lake.  Lot sizes are also a bit larger and range up to 10,000 square feet.  As of April 2019 the median sales price for this area is $370,000 – a 2.8% increase from this time last year.  The area topographically rises gradually from the corner of Highway 50 at Lake Tahoe Blvd towards the back of the neighborhood at 13th St and Gardner St – adjacent to our High School.
