Ski Resorts Close Due To Wind Gusts And Avalanche Danger

SIERRAS (CBS13) — Due to the dangerous conditions from the storm in the Sierras, ski resorts have closed, authorities said.

With reports of wind gusts of up to 100 miles per hour at Palisades Tahoe and the potential for avalanches, it's hard to say when the resort will open again.

Visibility has also been reported to be very poor, the closure being primarily a matter of safety.
