Three more Lake Tahoe-area ski resorts plan to open for the season this week.

Heavenly on Tahoe's south shore will open Friday, while Squaw Valley USA and Northstar-at-Tahoe just north of Tahoe will open Saturday.

Boreal atop Donner Summit kicked off the season Oct. 9, and Mt. Rose Ski-Tahoe southwest of Reno opened Oct. 30.

The resorts will be open daily with limited operations until they receive more snow.

A storm is expected to drop as much as 2 feet of snow beginning Friday.

Also scheduled to open are Sugar Bowl atop Donner Summit on Wednesday, Alpine Meadows just north of Tahoe on Dec. 5 and Diamond Peak in Incline Village on Dec. 10.
