The first snows of what could be a very snowy El Niño winter fell at high altitudes in Lake Tahoe on Wednesday afternoon, and skiers and ski resorts are getting very excited.

As KRON 4 shows us via a cam shot from North Star, the mountain got a nice dusting with even more possibly on the way next week. The resort is set to open on November 20.

Calling the snow a "sight for sore eyes, North Star spokesperson Cassandra Walker says, "Northstar California Resort has gotten its first taste of El Niño’s promised bounty and we are excited to see more, well into famed Tahoe spring-skiing days!"

As noted earlier, though this El Niño season is predicted to be huge and wet for at least part of California, there is no guarantee that Northern California will see the unusual amount of rain everyone is hoping for.

Also, there's no guarantee that temperatures in Tahoe will turn all the rain into snow.

Wait and see, ski-house renters!
