Sierra Events – this Week in the Sierra Mountains

February 27, 2015 – The Sierra Mountains are looking at the weather forecast with anticipation once again this weekend. Will we finally get a storm with a little snow pack  and fresh POW? The models look really good and we should start seeing snow late Friday and snow could blanket the entire Sierra mountain range by Sunday. So what is there to do this weekend in the Snow in The Sierra?
