A cold front moving through the state on Saturday dropped snow on parts of Yosemite and the Lake Tahoe region, with Squaw Valley showing about two inches of snow on the ground on Sunday.
OpenSnow reports that a brief snow on Saturday was followed by more on Saturday night, leaving about one to three inches in the ski areas of Tahoe. Also, a couple of roads were closed near Yosemite Saturday night due to incoming snow, and those were expected to reopen today.
The Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows Twitter account posted some photos showing some Spartan Race participants running a snowy course on Sunday. They also posted a video Monday morning showing even more snow falling today.

As ABC 7 reports, the Tahoe area is expected to see temperatures in the 60s this week, so all that snow will be quickly gone. Also, this wasn't even the first snow of the season — they saw some flurries up there two weeks ago. And the last ski season, FYI, just ended two months ago, with Squaw Valley extending its season into July this year.
The upcoming ski season is expected to open around November 15, unless more snow arrives early.
