    Hey, i skied Palisades 6 days last spring after they pulled the plug early at Alpine. :yourock:

    ^ Yeah so now we can plan on arriving at the Alpine lot an hour earlier to avoid parking in Deer Park? No thanks. I think they should run it from 11am to 2pm as increased indoor seating capacity for...

    As a former member of the turns all year club, some of the sandy hills around Tahoe Meadows offer prime turns for the first storm of the year. Also, just past the northern end of the Mount Rose...

    People skied in Tahoe today...I saw the Facebook and Insta posts. I think that calls for a new thread.

    If I start it, the title is going to be "Tahoe '23: The Year Of That Fucking New Gondola"

    I did call them out on gaslighting in the latest UA post. neither the gondola project or the snowmaking rebuild would have affected Summit.
    Someone posted an awesome comment:

    "We will be dedicating any remaining resources to keeping more lifts spinning on the Palisades side."

    Fuck those fucking motherfuckers.

    Had plenty of fun at Alpine...not bottomless by any means but found some floaty stuff in places.

    As of now...next week looks shitty with another inside slider arriving Sunday or Monday and fucking east winds and cold temps throughout next week.

    Got some nice corn and pseudo corn action today at the new "Alpine Lodge" part of the mountain now represented with the Philadelphia Eagles logo in Denver Broncos colors. It was nice to see the...

    I completely agree with needing a limit on the number of nights being critical. I stated that on the survey. I also wanted to know that since my neighbor can run a hotel in a residential...

    None of those numbers mean anything without considering departure times...it's all about when you leave.
  15. I'm just going to throw out there that Northstar...

    I'm just going to throw out there that Northstar is about the worst choice in Tahoe right now. All of that traffic that TahoeJ showed in his pic was primarily for Northstar. While 89 was relatively...

    You're probably overly optimistic on Alpine...the "scheduled" opening day is Friday...they possibly could pull a limited opening Thursday.

    We made our last trip of the year over to that side of town this morning. Maybe I'll make an exception for Sergio's but only if there's no dumbfuckery going on.

    That was exactly my thoughts when I saw the first photos...now the name Palisades Tahoe makes so much more sense.
  19. My only point in bringing up Wirthless is that...

    My only point in bringing up Wirthless is that the ganjola was his monument to himself, hence my thought that the lift should be renamed Andy's Albatross. Last I heard, Casey was "in charge" of the...

    Looking at this photo from Schralpine Ghettos yesterday, it makes you wonder how the hell they're gonna get things put together before the season begins. No way the ganjola finishes anytime...

    I re-winterized my camper van this morning...overnight lows to mid-20's for four nights and daytime temps scrambling to break 40.

    The old ones are pretty old school! Shoot me your mailing addy in a PM and I'll send some newer ones.

    I bailed on UA because the pressure from Tahoe Trump was just too much, making skiing unfun. That was in Feb 2017.

    Took it back online in Dec of 2019 because the wicked witch was dead, and...
  24. Nothing better to do in a pandemic year than just...

    Nothing better to do in a pandemic year than just go skiing every day. 167 days this season beat my personal best by 14 days, but that season (10-11) went from October through the following...

    All terrain leading toward Weasel/HotWheels area is now closed and roped off. You can't go any farther east than Dance Floor aka Red. They've started removing snow from the base area on that side to...

    Alpine delivered for awhile this morning before that burning ball of fire sizzle fried the new snow. And now back to our regularly scheduled spring corn...once it sets up again.

    So now it's down to NoNameMcValley and Schralpine...I expect we will see some of you around those parts. Schralpine is supposed to be Summit only after the weekend, and I'm okay with that.
  28. I did the mostly traverse to Upper Beaver today,...

    I did the mostly traverse to Upper Beaver today, with about 20 steps out of skis along the PCT. Estelle would require more walking.

    Just a heads up that things are going quickly at Schralpine. Lakeview is burnt and done for the season, and Sherwood is now open for High T laps in the morning. While Sherwood terrain was still open...

    Today was stupid good.

    In case anyone was wondering, both Alpine and Squaw were very busy today, as in top 3 for the season? The town of Truckee is nucking futs.

    At least one of the two choppers doing training that day was CHP. I am not sure about the second. Most of the laps seemed to go from Subway to about Grouse Rock and back. They were crazy low at...

    They ran AM lifts on diesel backup just long enough to get people off. Usually operating lifts with public on the diesel backup is not a great idea because if the diesel fails, then you need to rope...

    Haven't heard much on that front. But midweek numbers have been much stronger this year, probably more so than ever. Part of that has been a very consistent series of race events on the Roo. As...

    The positive AO Index (mentioned above by NS), in combination with the negative PNA index is usually a sign of good things to come.

    I found similar conditions on High T today at Alpine. It required careful line choice. Fortunately the crust was pretty supportive at that elevation.

    I was on Scott Chair as that went down, saw the cloud, and then heard yelling. I called Patrol immediately...as the number is in my contacts. Just driving up AM road that day and seeing many...

    Unpossible and I did a bell to bell day at Schralpine today. The crowds were low and we found some good turns.Resort stoke below:

    I believe that SVAM is sold out for the weekend for day tickets. The only exception is Friends and Family tickets purchased by pass holders. The can only be purchased "day of use" in person by the...

    Lakeview opens tomorrow, Friday. Outer Outer probably got cooked today. Munchkins and Field Of Dreams has been hit fairly consistently by backcountry skiers already this week.

    Pretty much the same report from Schralpine Ghettos

    Spot on. I have skied every day this season at Schralpine Ghettos, for better or worse. Some days you win, some days youre still skiing. Even last weekend was do-able with only minor adjustments to...

    As far as Ikon in Tahoe...they desperately need another big mountain in the Tahoe area to handle the load. The rough numbers I have heard is that there are 4x the number of passholders within a 4...

    I will also add in that this batch came in wet and heavy on top of the last couple of storms that were champagne powder. I did 5 laps at alpine in the morning and had enough of lines. The off piste...

    Agreed for sure. Any day where you're just dinging skis and not your body is worth it.

    Bombing and Gazex happened at Alpine today. Saw movement on all three inbounds Gazex. I watched from the parking lot as a patroller threw bombs in the Subway Cirque/Ice Cliff area.
