A sharp increase in snow is always a good thing for the Donner Ski Ranch and a sharp contrast to the drought that put them in dire straights two years ago.

Thanks to the drought, there's been little snow and that's been really difficult for the state's ski resoirts.

Two years ago on Take Two we spoke with Lincoln Kauffman, general manager of the Donner Ski Ranch in the Sierra Nevada Mountains who said that the drought had put the ranch in a dire situation due to the lack of snow.

But, this winter there has been snow. Quite a bit of it, in fact. 

So, we decided to check back in with with Donner Ski Ranch.

Joining Take Two's Alex Cohen  is co-owner Janet  Tuttle -- welcome to the program.
