    830ish arrival at stage should be fine. Worst case lower stage lot as someone mentioned. 2nd worse case park at boulder and take shuttle to stage. Either case better than fiddlefukkin with gonde access imo.

    Living around stage gonna miss the access. Gonna miss this winter. Not gonna miss digging my car out. Let the corn cycle begin! Again. Ps thought powdork would relate to the snow-mobile.

    Y'all with your made-up bullshit holidays. Chloe got Cesar Chavez day off, works for the county. BAH I say!

    You've got a few things on me. 1. Ground clearance. 2. Studs (yeah, I'd take that shit off too! I'm just running xice3 w/out studs). 3. Whatever your other tires are? I'm normally running on full summer tires. I don't so much mind them in cold temps (sub-40, summer tires are really only hard when they're COLD COLD from being parked, once you get rolling it's okay).. but the surprise snowpack runoff that refreezes on the roadways can be a major pucker factor on 88 at night. With overnight lows of 28 this coming weekend I'm not worried about the 10pm temps going up the hill.

    The xice3 are actually fine in the dry and hot temps. No lateral grip (it's like driving on jello blocks), but they're quiet and well-behaved. Just a very very subtle buzz-whine as you slow to a stop below 5mph. I feel bad running at speed across the valley in warm weather on 'em, but after 2 seasons and probably 5-8k miles they look like new, even the shoulders.

    OTOH, it's nice to *not* be on snows when you're stuck behind an STi bro too afraid to pass a pack of cars on a straight stretch of 88..

    The worst part is--the guy was driving his car like that.

    Guess which resort made the Sac Bee for closing early and the passholders are mad. Hint--it's not Squalpine.

    I wonder if any of these folks will have their next year's passes revoked.

    Why would anyone get their pass revoked? It it against a policy to post disappointment on the resorts FB page?

    I like that KW got a mention in the article. Hanging in the company of the big leagues now.

    "On Sunday, Tahoe Donner, Mount Shasta Ski Park, Homewood Mountain Resort and Kirkwood all closed for the season"

    It's a joke / reference to Squaw. A couple of people had their passes revoked and refunded for bitching on social media. Seriously.

    There's a robber baron joke in there somewhere.

    Top hats, monacles, walking sticks...... Handing out real estate fliers for aspen/mammoth/squaw condos that don't exist yet. Giving out cookies with messages "sorry, we're closed: It snowed"

    Hmmm

    "theme weekends" eh?

    What's Squaw like these days? I'm seeing 250+ inches of base, but a bunch of the good runs are closed so not sure what the true picture is? Trying to decide if I tour or surf the corn.

    Some closures that made me raise my eyebrows given 4 meter base: Hidden bowl, GC peak, Headwall Face, all of Silverado.

    Most of the good stuff is closed in the morning on corn days.

    Squaw will be righteous the next three days.
    Still waiting...

    I think it's updated in "realtime". Looks open now. Patrol keeps a lot of terrain closed with flippable lollipops until the sun hits it. Safe to say there's corn to be had.

    Squaw pretty much had every lift on schedule except for Broken Arrow, which if you really want is a short hike. Not that any one hear cares, they are even still running Far East, so basically the entire mountain except for BA is lift served right now. Oh, and Solitude, but does that ever spin?

    I care. I wish they would stop running it. My kid insists on parking there for some reason.

    The steep north facing stuff is closed for ice, as people have said. Alpine has been known to close the south and east facing mid morning once it starts getting sloppy. Of course Squaw does the same for smoothie. I don't know if they do it for other stuff--like Sun Bowl. (The trouble with Sun Bowl is that you have to ski a fairly steep north facing run to get back--so you do need edges on your corn skis.)

    MAKE TAHOE DEEP AGAIN ~ 2016/17 OFISHUL SNOW/FOOD/WHINE & STOKE THREAD

    You can still go hit plenty of fun intermediate runs like the chimney...

    Patrol knows what they're doing since cleaning up body parts isn't particularly fun... especially when they slide several hundred feet first.

    Always thought they had their heads rectally inserted for not letting skis/boards on the tram after the lifts closed.

    Skiing is good at Squaw. Pick your lines carefully as some of it icy crap with some froze death cookies mixed in for sport and some is just flat closed. Like North Bowl, West Face and other stuff in the morning, to prevent badasses from hopping into the runs and sliding to the bottom or worse case, into the trees. Use your noodle and you will be okay or if that fails, watch where everyone else is skiing.

    Though, I assume that means they'd have to have ski patrol, etc. working if they're allowing people up the tram with ski gear right? Private property, can't just transfer liability over to the forest service like at other resorts.

    Or is that not how it works?

    that looks about as bottomed out as they get. the best thing to do there is the dig a tunnel to your drivers side windshield and drive it like that.
