RENO, Nev. (AP) - The first snowfall of the season in the Sierra Nevada is raising the hopes of skiers and snowboarders after a dry winter.
The National Weather Service says an inch or so of snow was reported Friday on high peaks around Lake Tahoe, while several inches of snow fell around Mammoth Mountain to the south.
Forecasters are calling for a return to clear skies through the weekend.
Ski resorts are hoping for better skiing and snowboarding conditions this season after last winter produced a subpar Sierra snowpack.
Most resorts usually open for the season sometime after Thanksgiving Day.
