I made it up to Heavenly today. Nevada side (Stagecoach and North Bowl.) 2-3 ft. of fresh. They even opened Olympic chair for a couple of hours. I know that it isn't that steep there (steep was needed for the snow depth.) However, it did provide access to Western Perimeter (inbounds.) Western Perimeter was amazing. Deep and untracked. The rock piles between the trees were inviting soft pillows of pow. It was fun to float down with the brief moments of slough. I didn't cross any other tracks until close to 2:00.
I returned home to 2 feet of fresh on a 1 and 1/2 foot base. I might just ski my yard tomorrow.

nice. Good stuff. What a strange storm it's been - I ran in shorts yesterday and hiked in a tshirt today. I was worried that that meant that things were drying out up there, but it sounds like that's not the case.

All I could utter for hours on the one and only time I've rode KT was "Holy shit this rocks" "Fucking crazy man" over and over and over again. This was on FatThursday late February last year. KT on a sick pow day is better that sex.

Nice...super stoked you got Tahoe on a sick day...and have stories for the crew at home.
On another note...I just drove from SF to South Lake in about 3 hours...Yep...3 hours. No traffic with dry roads all the way to Sly Park Road. Rain until Strawberry and then driving on snow at Twin Bridges to Meyers. Over Echo Summit @ 7:00 pm it was dumping...it may be wet, but they are getting snow. Meyers it was a rain/snow mix, mostly rain. At my house in South Lake, not doing anything at all, except a few rain drops.
I will attempt to hit Kirkwood the next two days, may even buy a Heavenly pass if need be due to whether in the next few days.

88 open in both directions . . .chair 6 open and 10 on wind hold . . .
Tell me again why I left? Was it to come back and do a presentation today at work - must not have been cuz the fockers cancelled it this morning!!!!

My God, I don't even know where to begin. Yesterday was the best day of my life. Except the day before, or maybe the day before that. It still feels like a dream. Once I make sense of it in my head I'll elaborate. KT was the best it's ever been in my 5 seasons at Squaw. Our first run down chute 75 defies description. I think I made 10 turns down the whole thing, crossed maybe one patroller track the entire way. Ab-so-lutey insane.

nice work lads! more KT TR needed! hmmm, i sat this one out, but am thinking of heading back up tomorrow night and hitting Alpine on Wed. Supposed to be another 3-5 feet from tonight - Tues night
This storm cycle is insane...almost 17 feet since Dec 27th - yee haa!

Spur was open all day Sunday but the pass was closed, which is rare. KW rocked.

KW was very very nice today. Very Baker-esque (that's for you hardrider), super smooth and velvety dense stuff. Followed 666 down the Jim's... we probably made 10-15 turns from the top to the cat-track -warp speed now captain!
It got a bit chunky and hard once it was cut up so we ventured farther afield to stay in the smooth stuff, scoring down the Sisters and Norm's Nose. Vis was hit and miss most of the day with chair 10 going on wind hold (with us on it just below the top...my favorite part of the day) at around 1230? We called "over it" and bailed at 1330.
It was still puking when we left, so tomorrow should be UltraKickassRadness.
Edit: Skier666 has the pics.
