Rain, not snow, has forced China Peak ski area to remain closed Tuesday.

The base area is “still covered in water” after receiving about 10 inches of rain, according to an update on China Peak’s website.

The ski area expects to receive heavy snowfall in the next 24-36 hours. “No filter here ... roads will not be great getting up here, it is a good choice to stay home today,” the website reads.
