    "Yosemite’s Tioga Road will open on Friday, the first day of summer, but initially only for two hours a day.

    The park announced that motor vehicles and bicycles will be allowed on the trans-Sierra route from 10 to 11 a.m. and 3 to 4 p.m. daily."

    Highland Lakes Road is open all the way to the lakes and is in relatively good shape.

    Ohhh...that doesn't look good. What was your infraction? or fracture? or whatever resulted in your ban?

    They took out the six larger chunks of pelvis, I assume they left the rest of the thirty they counted in the scans.
    The ribs were below noise level.

    I Ruined my helmet, too.

    Yikes! You're a fast healer. I rode the chair with you one powder day at BV last year. I remember your saying that you were freshly back after a bad crash. I'd ban myself after that too. Glad you're back up and skiing.

    I'm off to Bend tomorrow and then the OR coast for a few days, Mike. I'll miss one Tue with Bert, but will be back for the first Tue in Aug. Maybe we can get back up there then? Work on powdrhound in the meantime.

    Central California

    Leaf Peepers

    Itís not quite yet prime but almost.

    I recommend Hwy 4 E over Ebbetts to 89 over Moniter. I went thataway this morning.

    The descents into the East Side over Moniter and Sonora Passes are fkn amazing.

    this is going to annoy a lot of people


    https://www.bearvalley.com/shuttle-service/

    Welcome Aboard!
    Providing shuttle services from the Bear Valley Village to Bear Valley Mountain and back.

    Shuttle Cost:
    Bear Valley Ski Guests will have two different rate options for the Village Bus. (Available for purchase beginning November 30th)

    Rate – Adult (13+) $49.99 Child (6-12) $39.99

    (Option Two) Pre-purchased single ride tickets

    One-way bus tickets – $1.00 per ticket. These can be pre-purchased in bulk for your convenience.

    How to Purchase – Individuals will be able to purchase a seasonal bus pass sticker (and/or card) or bulk single ride tickets in both the town General Store or at Guest Services/Ticket Office at the Mountain.

    *Please note all Bear Valley Lodge Guests will receive complimentary shuttles with their $12.00 daily resort fee, and any children 5 and under ride free (Non-resort guests included). In addition, “Peaks Pass” holders will receive complimentary bus service with proper bus pass sticker attached to season pass.

    Bear Valley Resort will offer an upgrade opportunity to the “Peaks Pass” for any current season pass customer wanting to take advantage of this additional perk.

    Upgrade to Peaks Pass

    -Lost or stolen passes(sticker) will need to be replaced at full price. (Only if entire sticker is missing or removed)

    -No online purchases for any bus products.

    Where Does the Shuttle Stop?
    The Bear Valley Shuttle will stop in front of the lodge at the mountain and in the small lot in front of Sky High Pizza & Pub. If the snow is high, you may not see the shuttle from the doors of the lodge!

    The shuttle will also pick up guests in the Mountain Parking Lot.

    19/20 Winter Shuttle Schedule
    TBA

    ATTN: There is no shuttle service provided during the Summer Seasons.

    Damn right, and probably leave some people stranded at the village.

    Didn't the Co-op pay for shuttle last year?

    Hope folks donít decide to ski home to save a dollar and fuck a knee up in the sunnyside mank (a gaper friend of mind did that about a decade ago).

    Other than that is sounds reasonable. Free sticker with a season pass or staying at the lodge? Only pay if you are in town for the weekend. Cost a family maybe $10-20 more than their vacation and it pays for the service. Iíd support that kind of charge at KW. But I have a pass, so does not impact me.

    well, village laps during the day may not be as crowded. I'll have a few tix in my pockets.

    BUT, if its between $8/day (or $190/year!) to get my family up and down the mountain, we'll probably drive and I think a lot of village dwellers might think the same. The result will be even more parking chaos.

    Gotta get my kids used to the morning skintrack, true "ski in, ski out" routine.

    I picture myself buying a 10 ride punch card. No way I would use it 50+ times.

    most people wonít ride the bus 50 times

    youíll have to have tickets there arenít any punch cards and youíll have to buy them at the General Store or at the ticket office - more chaos

    BV has its challenges. Weíd rather be ready when weíre open instead of half assed. BV has terrain considerations that DR does not.

    Iíve not been part of the set up of a mountain for the first time in ten years. It feels kinda weird.

    Iím doing something new and different this season - part time at the mountain and part time in the meadow at the xc center.

    Iím stoked to be part of something new and different at BVAC and to continue to patrol at the mountain.
