    Road is clear to just above TC, per a buddy of mine.



    I love you, baby, but the season's over.

    You could go to Lake Peak if you get tired of TC. Just one of many mountains with good lines nearby

    Ruby Mountains, NV

    My first visit in the winter was today. I started in Battle Mountain this morning.
    I arrived to the pullout by T.c.
    parked and jumped out to grab my gear. As I pushed the button to pop my truck it locked my car!
    With both sets of keys inside. I had nothing to get in. I tried to pry my rear window open and it broke in half a second.

    So I just left as it was snowing, I was solo, and in a '86 rear wheel drive BMW and on my way to Denver.

    Anyone been to the yurt on the ridge above conrad creek operated by ruby mountain heli? Thinking about a bachelor party this winter, wondering if it'd be worth it. Seems like it's on the far edge northern edge of the range, wondering if it confines you to part of the rubies that might not have the best skiing.

    Looking for other hut / yurt options like this within 6 to 8 hours of Reno (not interested in paying a ton to ski virginia lakes)

    Just book a sweet ass cabin at Convict Lake. Cost may be a little more but so will the bells and whistles and the touring terrain is off the hook
    You will have a bar and a five star restaurant to visit if you want

    I've toured a bit through convict canyon, hard for me at this point to justify getting a cabin there when I'm used to sleeping in the trailhead parking lot or the caldera. The rock creek winter yurt looked sick, but was crushed by the snow last year. Won't be operating this year.

    Stopped in Elko last night and checked out Lamoille Canyon this morning before heading back on the road. Everywhere lower than the end of the canyon doesnít really have enough coverage but the road is driveable in a Subaru almost to the end. The back bowls have some fun skiing and thereís six inches of soft powder. If youíre passing through right now itís definitely worth a stop.

    Skied this slope:

    That's how I usually roll too, but to come back to a hot tub, bar and big screen beats the shit out of my camper shell.

    And Rock Creek kinda sucks IMO Have you checked the guy at Virginia Lakes hut? Great touring there

    I'm thinking of heading to the Rubies this weekend, anyone care to share a quick summary of avy conditions so far this season? I see that a storm came through in September, so I assume there's a buried weak layer causing a low probability/high consequence potential for avalanches. I would love to hear from anyone who has been out and about!

    Mike (not a TGR mag) was in the Rubies this past weekend. I am sure he would be happy to provide all the beta for you. You should be able to get in touch with him via IG https://www.instagram.com/hukesnow/ if not let me know and I will try and help via a non social media method.
