    Ah. Turns out there is more than one shuttle (it seems). AM/SV "express".
    And an Alpine Meadows one that goes up & down AM rd (I assume).

    Off topic here, but what's the consensus on sierra? Quality small scale resort with good mix of terrain? Too small to justify a season pass?

    I went there last month for the first time i many years. "Quality small scale resort but too small to justify a season pass" pretty much sums it up IMO. It would be great if they had a combo deal with another resort like they did in the past.

    TahoeJ, epic pass or squaw/alp? Tough call this upcoming season

    Problem is there is noone for them to do it with at least where I see it makes sense. One of their prime draws is their storm day skiing. That means to take advantage of that it would have to be a relationship with Heavenly or Kirkwood (getting from north to south on a storm day doesn't work out too well) and that ain't gonna happen.

    You have to like tree skiing. For us, there is something *special* about SaT.
    Maybe its just the sweet potato fries?
    We always have a good time there.
    Usually their passes are amongst the cheapest.
    We think it is worth it.
    We have AM/SV pass & Sierra pass this season.

    Squaw/Alpine are where you want to be. Too bad it turned into a such a cluster.
    I think they should charge $2000 for a pass and provide the service of a world class resort, which it is.

    Depending on where you live,Sugar Bowl or Rose aren't bad options?

    I've been skiing sugarbowl with littles since 2008. The drought messed up some of their ops of the kids stuff. This year, they decided to basically not run most of the Judah area on weekdays. If you weekday day-ski with really little kids, that's a pretty big bummer. The magic carpet and white pine chair are great with the littles. The Nob hill chair can be pretty tricky with early learners compared to that area. Pre-drought, this was not the case; they consistently ran white pine lift and often both white pine and the magic carpet.

    On weekdays when not skiing with kids, it's also been a bummer for them not to open the Judah side. Plenty of good new snow off the flanks of my Judah has gone to waste....

    Oh don't get me wrong I really liked the place and the tree skiing was fantastic. I just wouldn't want to have only that for an entire season. And yes, the passes are super cheap even by today's standards.

    The terrain off of 6 at Kirkwood was skiing great today, and nobody was there. The East Bowl of Stevens was also extremely fun corn; just sticky down near the road.

    So it's freezing there overnight? According to snotel, it hasn't gotten below 39 in a few days.

    It's not just air temp that matters. If the air temp is reasonably close to freezing the snow surface will freeze due to heat loss by radiation into the clear night sky (assuming clear sky) and by conduction to the colder snow deeper in the snow pack. If there's wind it will also lose heat in the process of evaporation. (If it's calm the air just above the snow will be saturated so the snow/water won't evaporate; the wind carries away the saturated air and allows evaporation. Change of phase requires a lot of heat.)

    it's been mostly clear overnight in the KW valley. close to corn during the day, but it got slushy in the most sunny of spots.

    carson pass backcountry is great. south aspects ready to go by 11am and north/west aspects holding out until about 2pm

    Thanks for the beta. Went up emerald bay chutes Sunday and found near-corn snow around 10:45 at the top and boot deep slush half way down.

    How was the bottom section coverage-wise by the waterfall? Mind sharing any beta pics?

    keep in mind it's now raining and 38 degrees at the top of alpine.

    an "evolving situation" with the snowpack I'm sure

    Where should I take Krystal Kartwright for her birthday dinner in South Lake Tahoe on Saturday night? We like good IPA with our meal.
