    Crazy how different conditions can be. We were skiing west facing and south facing all day. Go figure. I guess we were up high though.

  36. THE OFFICIAL 20/21 TAHOE SKI & SNOWBOARD THREAD. PANDEMIC SCHMANDEMIC!

    Based on how it’s snowing down in carson and the new snow, I’d bet Tahoe got a healthy dose of snow last night. There’s gotta be at least one mountain that has gotten 3 ft in the past 24

    And it sounds like I-80 in Reno/Sparks is basically shut down east of the interchange due to crashes. It’s probably snowed, what, two inches up there? Let it begin.
