    Looking good, CS!
    Planning on hitting Leavitt on Saturday. Hope the snow lasts this heat wave.

    Was just on Leavitt Tuesday, wet slides and roller balls off the crest (3 separate occurrences just above your skins track) made me call it off at about 11:30 am. Was pretty warm up there.

    Solstice Couloir off Mt Dana and Banana Chute in Ellery Bowl were good fun on Friday.

    Headed back up to that zone again today.

    I was surprised how much snow is still up there but it won't last much longer.

    Gopher good to see ya getting after it once again this "spring"! I will live vicariously through you...

    BTW you gotta try the e-skate self-shuttle from Ellery sometime!



    Actually... it seems like the e-bike is the way to go. We were up there last year when the road was clear but the gate hadn't been opened, and at least 3 parties e-biked up to Ellery from the closure down low and said it was a piece of cake. I tried it with the e-skate and it actually *just barely* made it from the gate to Ellery dam. Then on the way back down the the regenerative braking charged the battery halfway back up again!

    whoa, is TPR back in business?!? That's awesome news!!!

    Since I thought it was terminal, and others might have as well, here's an update from Feb on the Bookface.

    Now...if they bring back winter lodging...I'll really lose my mind!!

    Well...here you go. The somewhat overdue TPR update:
    Please understand that for some time now all TPR-related roads have lead to me, and there's TONS to deal with...plus I sort of have a life. So my apologies for emails and such have gone unanswered. This process has been and continues to be a stressful one, and has resulted in me largely keeping my head down until the day arrived where I/we could begin to relay news of significant progress and a brighter future was, at least, somewhat visible on the horizon.
    The 2017 damage event created a call to action to not only repair the specific damage we sustained, but to ultimately pursue a holistic restoration and fortification of the resort so as to put it on an indefinitely sustainable trajectory for the future. No expense has been spared in doing so.
    The scope of work undertaken thus far is too expansive to fully list here. But as these pictures suggest, it has been truly ground up. This includes full new foundations under the lodge + multiple cabins...large scale log replacement/reconstruction...full new floor systems...etc, etc. Large scale re-plumbing has also been undertaken.
    A lot has gotten done, but there is a lot more to do. What if anything we may be able to offer this coming season remains an unknown. We must balance our sincere wish to get back to serving the public with the fact that doing so will naturally hamper our ability to continue certain work on the resort. In a perfect world, we are hoping to offer limited lodging and food this season on an as-available basis...but we’ll have to see how the balance of the winter and other factors play out. Unfortunately, we really won't know until were almost "there."
    Whatever the timeline, TPR is going to be a different place moving forward. We envision a revitalized and more diverse resort with a greater focus on outdoor food & beverage service inclusive of updated fare, locally brewed beer on tap, and a well-curated wine selection. But such will take time to evolve over the coming seasons. You're going to have to wait a while on the meat loaf & pie folks.
    Please continue to follow us here for updates, and thanks for your continued patience and support.

    Rockfall everywhere around Whitney Portal and the major peaks out of Lone Pine. I’m hearing sheriffs and CHP are investigating now.

    Fingers crossed for minimum casualties
