ALTA SIERRA, Calif. — All the reindeer and elves will flock to Alta Sierra this week as the ski resort announces they are open for the holidays.

The resort announced on social media that, thanks to 8 inches of new snow, they will be opening the slopes everyday except Christmas.

The ticket office opens at 8 a.m. and runs open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Officials are warning drivers to bring chains if they plan to head up the snow-covered roads this week.
