It feels like June on the trails, but it’s not. Hikers are reporting early summer conditions in the forest surrounding Lake Tahoe, and the U.S. Forest Service is opening many recreation sites early due to a lack of snowfall this year. However, the forest service says you still have to be prepared for colder temperature if you are going to enjoy the outdoors this spring.Forest Service spokeswoman Lisa Herron tells the Tahoe Daily Tribune that, above 8,000 feet people are likely to still find snow, especially on north-facing slopes. Anyone heading into the forest should also be prepared for the possibility of late-season storms.
