    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...
  4. 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...
  5. All terrain leading toward Weasel/HotWheels area...

    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.
  8. 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.
  11. In case anyone was wondering, both Alpine and...

    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.
  12. At least one of the two choppers doing training...

    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...

    Backed up all of the way to Highway 80 at noon on Friday. This weekend is going to be the shitshow of all shitshows...

    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.

    What we had today was a flood of tourons ready for a big powder day. By 10:15 lines were out of the corrals at Schralpine and cars were being parked by Deer Park. They sold a lot of Ikon passes this...

    Well, of course. But the Christmas week blackout was just about the same as the week prior. Talking to mountain staff, they were prepared for much higher numbers...

    The scene at Schralpine was very subdued today. Upper lots did not even come close to filling. Only line was at Summit today. Following the sun, mandatory. Weird because Truckee was a zoo.

    Far better than the current price for friends and family at SquAlpine....$156

    Schralpine Ghettos was filled beyond capacity today, with all lines beyond the corrals. Upper lots filled plus White Wolf, Chalet Rd and Deer Park (first time this season). I have a feeling it will...

    Again...why spring corn days have become much more of a draw for me than powder days. Alpine had the fullest parking lot of the season today...on a Tuesday...for what could marginally be called a...

    He's been over at Alpine the last two Saturdays hanging at the Roundhouse line. Tahoe Trump never did that...

    There's definitely a thousand traverse tracks toward the Palisades...it is Alpine Meadows, known for traverses. But it is not a cat track. They have to be able to get a small cat all of the way...

    That is absolutely fake news my friend. No cat track yet.

    I talked directly with the Mtn Ops Manager yesterday. There's not enough snow yet to get a groomer in to the top area of ABC just yet. There's not even enough snow to build the usual cat track...

    More importantly, the Valley With No Name is opening Sibo, Big Blue and Shirley today as well. It always snows more over there too.

    Roundhouse line has a new configuration with 4 widespread lines at a 45 degree angle to old placement. Most of the day reached just about all of the way across the runout. What really slowed it down...

    And that makes me a bit happier about resort skiing this season...although Alpine Meadows was a shit show this weekend. Too many people for the terrain that is open. We did 1.5 hours on Sat & Sun...

    Fuckers that are coming here to spread your Q bullshit...fuck you and your fucking freak show.

    That's it I am boycotting Campbells...or am I supposed to boycott Tahoe Daves? So confused...

    Isn't it supposed to be Lake Tahoe and not Tahoe Lake?

    My patience is being tested by all of the COVID banter so posting something different. The soft opening at Alpine was very good yesterday, considering it's mid November. Not very busy. Today was the...
