Lack of snow forces Tahoe's Sugar Bowl to close

LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (KGO) -- The lack of snow is forcing another Sierra ski resort to shut down earlier than usual.

Sugar Bowl says it'll close for the season after Sunday, due to the ultra-dry conditions this winter.

It's the second resort to shut down in the past week.

Sierra-at-Tahoe suspended operations temporarily on Monday.

If it doesn't reopen this year, it will be the earliest seasonal closing since the 1970s.
