As in 10 days ago? Did the big weather event Feb 7-9th put down more snow there? What is the elevation of TC....did it get all snow (or get rain?)

Good advice....make it fun, not about skills, and keep it short. Where you taking him??
I have 2 boys, 3 and 6, and have done a lot of this. My kids have refused to be in a lesson, and rather...
Thanks for sharing, I didn't know about that.
That is really interesting and cool.....I knew this was a passion of Gaffney's, but didn't know about the organization or direction they had taken...

Very cool.....yeah, down in the wind break. What a great day.....I am still on cloud nine!!
Great shots.....love it.
Long live the TR!!

Ahhhhh, winter is finally here, and it came with a bang. Havent seen one of those storms in quite a while. Planned on doing Rose laps on Sunday afternoon, but after most resorts closed we decided...

Yes, skied a couple laps off Tamarack yesterday. Lots of people out there skiing all day long.....skin track is a highway. Snow crazy deep. That said, could hear lots of definite "whumping" so be...

Yup, trying to decide the same. I have gone to Pole Creek in the past situations, just get in the trees and get out in it. Mostly a tour up the canyon, but can get a bit of vert at the end.
02-09-2014, 07:11 AM
Rose just updated morning report. Closed for the day....blizzard and loss of power.
On the plus side, 12-18 overnight, and 22-32 storm total.
The season is back.....but today is sorta screwed.
02-01-2014, 05:55 PM
Anyone out in Rose BC today? Hourglass?
Many people ski it today? Stable?

Kayaking on the East Shore is pretty legendary......no development, gorgeous water, etc.
Leaving from Sand Harbor (near Incline) is the main spot.....in summer this company brings boats, you could...

Yeah, I think she is mostly just risking her knee (hopefully only the graft, but the point on either meniscus or worse crash is valid)......and she sort of did that by trying to race at 6 months. ...

Agree with The Dad......even man made wise, it is bad out there. My Rose adventure showed me why they weren't open....we followed the 1 cat track and still was bare and rocky.
11-24-2013, 01:06 PM
Skied Rose Friday night......great evening adventure, but I see why they didn't open.

My first time in TGR this year.......and my first post in AWHILE.
This thread deserves the bump......I am unbelievably jealous watching 14erskiers for the last month. Those powder photos were...

Cool vid.....good music, and skiing tempo. fun to just see standard conditions, techy skiing (not just the average powfest).....easy to play along from home. :)
For the record, Sport Clips in Reno (near Whole Foods), has an AWESOME! poster of Rob Deslauriers dropping into the Chimney!! Totally old school, probably like NF Skiing Extreme IV time (87).
Those skinning pictures are awesome......little dude just looks super comfortable/natural on skis, that is the goal. I look up to you guys. :)
Cool thread Mike.....we all love watching Owen learning and getting good. He really is shredding for his age.
We have a pretty simple objective, make sure our kids love the mountains and snow. ...
11-26-2012, 02:58 PM
I want to hear this too......great idea. Would be awesome to wait for snow down to 4300, and make a 5000+ foot decent (even though some of that would be lower level trekking). End at either...

Thanks for reply AKB. Any real time updates from Tahoe people? Looking for beta on Aspens...

Stoked for this year. Rose passes for the Huckwheat Family (year 2). Missus and I are buying tele gear.....to make both skiing with a 5 and 2 year old (and skiing Rose) more...
10-11-2012, 01:24 AM
That was fun....thanks. So, did you ever go back for seconds? No disrespect if not, I have some stuff that once was enough (and it probably wasn't that scary). :)
Wow, "stoked" is right. I sure as shit didn't need that right now.
Wow, pretty epic. Those cliffs at Jackson are scary, and that is a huge. Impressive he skied away that smoothly (but my first thought was 'not really a stomp').

Bizarre how Tahoe City can continue to decline.......best location ever and it just hasnt been supporting businesses for awhile now.
Gone are the days of: Naughty Dog, P&P, Humpties (Altitude...

That is awesome.....your POVs are some of the best.
04-11-2012, 11:41 PM
Looks awesome......fun, fun.
04-09-2012, 09:47 PM
So, do you have a bit of an AK resume? Would think a guide would only take you up there (especially day 1) if he had some trust in your skills.
Thanks for the great story and...

I raise my hand......different from years past, but with where I am at family wise, it was great.

04-05-2012, 09:16 AM
Ha, good point.....yes someone has to dig very deep and make a decision like that on their own.
I have kids now too (1 and 4, boys). It makes us think different about Squaw skiing (for the...

So, allograft? Or like hammy auto?
I did allograft, in like '04. My rehab was actually easy.....hardest part was FORCING myself to take it very easy for a full 6 months (because I felt good). I...
Hey Jim.....well congrats on getting so many fly days. You know better than anyone how that can go.
My buddies are at PNH right now (since Sat).....no fly yet. And one guy blew his knee...

I skied Squaw Friday, and did 3 palisades hikes. The lines are intense up there right now.
This could be a SICK palisades year, if we get the right snow, but on top of low snowpack.
So.....I was not following GSA until I saw him with Powder11s in Whistler.....now I must follow. :)
Came home from Whistler and got my wife up to speed on this (YEARS ago, she was a very active...

I didnt say it was ALL of them......it was just giving some context to who this random group of gapers was.
03-04-2012, 03:35 PM
True....I was there for the initial siting, and Powder11's photo.
Funny fact is, I still dont know the names......so not even sure which areas you are referring to (Gray Zone, Hawaii 5-0, etc). ...

The Crew: 6 of us headed to Whistler for a long weekend. 2 from Boulder, 3 from Denver, and me from Reno. It was my CU Boulder crew, and was to celebrated a bachelor party (round 2).

Question on Cat Skiing in Whistler......buddies were considering it for Sunday (I am leaving that day).
Any good operations, where you get to ski good stuff?
What about Blackcomb Powdercats?
02-29-2012, 08:20 AM
Awesome.....definately NOT boring. Not knowing the lines (or style of skiing out there), alot of those lines had me sketched going in......hard to tell what you were getting yourself into. I will...
02-28-2012, 04:40 PM
What is "fresh tracks"? Is that the early up thing? Weekdays and Weekends, or only weekends? How do you do it?
02-28-2012, 04:38 PM
Holy Crap......that is awesome. Can you give us a high res image? :) http:......
Where is that???
Since the Tahoe season began (Jan 20ish), I have had a great family ski season.

What is in the forecast? What weather page do you guys use??
Congrats, that rocks!! Were you a bit buried there? Looked a bit sketch.

Love my cross bike.....have had it for 10 years (Hunter steel), but only tried my first actual cross races this past spring.
