TWIN BRIDGES (CBS SF) – Officials at the Sierra in Tahoe say they are moving closer to reopening after the ski resort burned in the Caldor Fire.
Earlier this week, the mountain resort finally received a new cable for its main elevator shipped from Switzerland.
The crews spent the week threading the 10,000-foot cable up the elevator.
But there’s still a lot of work to be done. The resort was unable to begin the process of removing the burned trees.
That’s because El Dorado County is still awaiting federal funding.
Officials have previously announced that trails and areas accessed by the West Bowl Express will be inaccessible this winter. Additionally, many tree-top ski resorts such as Jack’s and Avalanche Bowl remain closed for the season.
