Had to share this shot of Gimpy enjoying the fresh coat from Mon-Tues in the Ebbett's Pass area.
Beside Ebbett's some great snow still exists in Blackwood Canyon (4th of July Bowl-access...

Yeah Sam! You and David nailed it and it was beyond a blast to share the experience. Can't wait for the next adventure!

Thanks for the words Chet! It was a real pleasure to have you, Chet Jr., Tim and Martin at camp!
We just kept ramping it up the last couple of weeks capping off a truly memorable season in the...

Got a few more couple's booked this week. Still some room though if people wanna make something happen. Drop me a PM or email PNH...

Franz, we skied out of Big Pine. There's no "accepted" names for the lines we skied as far as I know. And Gimpy, the point is there's snow in a few lines up high, but getting to them would be tedious...
01-28-2012, 03:13 PM
Nice work Franz! To add...a few classics looked good on my way home to Tahoe from Big Pine Friday. Coke Chute, Tom for sure, Basin and even the main Wahoo all looked very skiable and fun. Bloody...

100% fired up to share some stoke here and hopefully get a TGR crew(s) up here breaking in the zone this year! To answer a couple of the q's I've done some kiting in Haines and it could be a useful...

Not much happening in the immediate backyard, but the greater backyard is holding some goods if anyone's got the itch (TR of a Pow Day, Bloody Couloir, and yes this should be in the e-side thread...

Too bad we missed you PD, but a nice way to break in the new season w/Gimpy nonetheless: http://unofficialnetworks.com/unofficial-kick-20112012-tahoe-ski-season-1014-inches-snow-overnight-45965/

Skiing Stoke in August, that will go through September, until it's snowing again in Oct! Amazing. Here's some patch skiing beta if anyone wants to hit a few off the West Shore. Flowers are going off!...

Someone asked about beta for CP- http://unofficialnetworks.com/tahoe-backcountry-outlook-july-4th-weekend-2011-28678/
Red Lake was smooooooth on Wednesday after the couple of inches we got, and...

Nice shot of the Trinity Chutes BG! Heading up there this week, fired up! Attached a shot from yesterday in Deso. More at Unofficial Squaw. For June 18th, from Tioga to Tahoe and on up to Shasta,...
06-01-2011, 01:28 AM
Hey AK B, the attached shot must be of you and your crew. We saw you as we skied out from the Demon. Figured it would've been a better ski, but I guess not. The Demon was a melt-freeze crunchy top,...

^yeah, it's cool those "kook" skiers use of "meth" in reality translates to a fast-and-light style of alpinism executed to the highest level of ski mountaineering in the Sierra. Pretty rad...
04-18-2011, 02:07 PM
On Whitney, what 213 said. Although we skied it this January in mostly pow...almost the whole way. It can happen. However, the couloir was more junky/grabby windboard than powder, and there were a...
04-14-2011, 03:02 PM
213 how did you come up with the name for the Humphrey's shot? Still never got any beta from anyone about that. So stoked to see those pics in here! What a sick mission. I say we rally back to that...
04-02-2011, 07:23 PM
As far as conditions are concerned Tallac was RAD yesterday...perfect corn on se slopes early, sheltered pow in the cross and the top of center chute, smooth pornish snow in the west couloir...and...
03-04-2011, 05:06 PM
sick shots PD! And cool Kid stoke Kona:)
If anyone's interested, the steeps are skiing perfect in the Basin right now. That storm, also evidenced by the Unofficial Squaw video, was a perfect Sierra...
02-27-2011, 11:31 PM
Sick shots/stoke on here right now. Great to ride the Wood with you PD yesterday. And to add to the random descents, had one of the highest quality laps I've ever skied in our greater zone...
02-23-2011, 04:02 PM
You should at least check out pic 3 in the post-the dude skinning up at Jakes-unreal!
Stay safe out there everyone, send...

A week agao it was a half inch. A day or so ago it was maybe 4ish. Today it measured and skied like 8-14ish. A sleeper face shot pow day indeed! So sick!:biggrin:
01-12-2011, 11:13 AM
01-06-2011, 07:50 PM
Stoked to see what you get into 213:)
Skied Mini Pinner in glorious pow yesterday after a late start. North Face everything is ridiculous down there right now.
A shredder crew nailed...

Thanks for the update Gimpy. Hadn't heard anything in the last week so a definite thanks for that info, and continued good vibes towards DJ's health!
Also want to reiterate what hucasoreass and...
12-02-2010, 07:52 PM
Thanks for the updates on Darren.
Keep sending him vibes EVERYONE.
Jim-several pages back, that photo was taken around the Fallen Leaf Lake Zone.
And to keep the stoke going, some pow...
11-25-2010, 05:03 PM
That is a sick shot from the Wood.^^^^
Attached is a companion taken earlier today.
Thankful for pow, our terrain, and for our greater community of Tahoe snow shredders -not just today but...
11-24-2010, 06:24 PM
It's like mid winter out there! Happy Powder Dayzzzz to all! If JT has any pics to share that'd be sick, I only got two decent shots, but I will say today has a heli ski day without the heli. Sooooo...
11-17-2010, 07:47 PM
Thanks for the shout out Ja Surf. Glad to share some stoke in the local paper.
And good to meet you and your buddy yesterday Ottime. Hopefully next time is not such a sloooooog:smile:
10-30-2010, 12:38 PM
FYI, building from Pd's post, our ski in the Hoover Wilderness Friday, and the shimmering I saw leaving Freel this week on Red Lake and off towards Blue Lakes, it rained real high, winds stripped a...
10-27-2010, 08:32 PM
Yeah Kona12. A write up is on unofficialsquaw right now, and the picture is of my partner skiing off Freel's summit. The north bowl was good too. However, I wouldn't tell anyone to go for it really,...
10-26-2010, 09:31 PM
Honestly, as far as Lake surfing goes, the water was about as warm as it gets. It only looks cold beacuse it was super stormy and some surfers/paddleboarders had hoods on.
In other news, skiing...
10-07-2010, 02:44 PM
Wonder if anyone made the run up Freel this a.m. I thought about it, but the super warm temps and noticeable evidence of high rain detered me to my backup plan as I crested Luther Pass this morning....
10-06-2010, 04:52 PM
with a hell f'ing yeah for October 6th!
10-05-2010, 11:10 PM
Powdorks shots look waaay better than what I saw this afternoon/evening as my lady and I looked for turns all the way to Kirkwood. Even Carson pass didn't have as much as I would have thought. On the...
08-30-2010, 03:29 PM
It's just so sick that there's other people to geek with about a season that probably won't be full-on until many more days of biking, climbing, and surfing passes.
None-the-less, epic sunrise...
After the previous discussion in this thread, had to go back and get Third Pillar in pow...well, mostly pow. The top was somewhat firm due to the winds, but the riders left side was mostly soft, the...
04-19-2010, 02:08 PM
The Harvest was on this weekend-best corn yet! But it looks like back to winter for a few more:biggrin: days
Yeah, it's that line, and I don't doubt it's mellow when you know where you're going, but at least my comments on that approach are based on us not being on the right route and traversing, pulling...
04-12-2010, 07:57 PM
I waited for Squaw's crack of dawn:rolleyes: snow report at 630am...
4-6"?!?...WTF, I thought this was going to be a repeat of last Monday with 2 feet of blower:mad:
Then I thought I'd see how the...
04-10-2010, 04:05 PM
He means it could open soon as there has been work done at over 9k to clear the road, BUT, it's supposed to snow again so that will prolong any early opening. Good news though as if it did pop soon,...
04-07-2010, 06:46 PM
I can confirm (as can gimpy) early am face shot city was still located on protected n-facing shots. The question (as I've been told the sun baked hard all day, and anything this a.m. that was not...
04-05-2010, 07:53 PM
Today was a day that reminds me, although I don't sit on a chairlift that much anymore, when I do, Squaw is the phucking shit, especially when its 2+ feet of double overhead blower...in April:D Hope...
03-21-2010, 07:21 PM
Searched for the goods all over this week...made turns in Tahoe, Carson range, Sweetwaters, Eastside and even the White Mtns. Best turns were in the eastside, on the huge mellow line of Basin Peak...
01-17-2010, 06:27 PM
Last storm gave us more than we bargained for; two shots of Gimpy getting it good on the other days dawn patrol, and one of my buddy dropping glacier bowl in desolation. We actually skied out the...

Putting my story about Antarctica together for Skiing the Backcountry and just had to post these two pics.
Stoke level rising for the weather window ahead:D
01-04-2010, 02:52 PM
Figured while I dump pics off my memory card I should share a couple of good ones of some nice baccountry skiing over the past month. Also stoked to see some more bc shots/beta up in here that I hope...

September turns and month 71 in a row, check. Thanks for the beta Scralp, much nicer to stay within 1/2 hour of home rather than head to Shasta for our usual September turns spot...hopefully next...
Thanks for the post BG. As you said, just spreading the awareness is a step in the positive. There's always going to be ignorant riders that really could give a fuck about anything but themselves and...
08-03-2009, 11:01 AM
Slim pickings, but found a nice smooth "patch" off Carson Saturday to welcome August, Jerry's B-Day, and 70 consec. months of turns. Anyone finding anything else out there...wonder what will be...
