Bloomberg via Youtube
March 6 — Mother Nature has been especially cruel this drought year to the ski resorts in Lake Tahoe. Snowpack is 25 percent of the historical average and January 2015 was the driest on record. But Barrett Burghard, who has been making snow at Heavenly for 27 years, isn’t too concerned about California’s ongoing drought. His team of snow makers and groomers have been working around the clock, and as of early March, they’ve succeeded in opening nearly half of the resorts 4,800 acres for skiing.
