    the Tonopah low delivered another 3-5 inches Friday night.

    Back out at red cone, we were following a shit show train of skiers with all kinds of gear camera and film gear on their backs. Someone was hauling an extra pair of skis. As it turns out it was the Atomic crew https://www.instagram.com/atomicski/ with............wait for it....................Todd Jones and his ripper son, Kai https://www.instagram.com/kaijonesski/.


    Great to meet you Todd. What an awesome day out there.

    Nice PW7. can't quite place where you toured but looks cool

    Nice rigs too. Can we camp with you? I think we were admiring the left camper in Mammoth last wknd.
    We just moved up from a rotting palomino pop-up to this '13 tundra and Four Wheel.

    Can't view attachments. Sad!

    Were you snow camping? Isn't duck pass quite a haul in?

    Was up at Mammoth Crest this weekend. Conditions were fantastic. Most of the crowd opted to ski Redcone Bowl in spite of it being kinda windfucked.
    We opted for the terrain on the other side



    Coverage was great going in



    Mikey points to the Goods



    Felt Good to be skinning again



    Found the wind fucked snow




    But the down looked tasty



    And Big fun was had




    Test Results- Boot Deep soft powder No Crust No signs of Instabilities Great Day

    But as I drove away Sunday I could hear the pow melting

    ^^^x2. Thanks for the photo, I had been thinking about biking up the highway with skis March 10th weekend, but I guess I should start looking at airplane tickets to someplace with snow or plan a mtb trip.

    Wow, just catching up on this thread. Great stuff. Powerwhore7- that last pic is awesome. grant lake?

    CS - that pic of Ellery is insane. I thought snowline in the East side was 9000--10000ft or so. I haven't been down there this year, but somehow that's what I had heard. But from your pics, it looks much higher - the top of Ellery is like 11 and change right? I thought the lake is almost 10,000. Is that just localized wind scowering or is the snowline that high all around there? what's was the snowline around other areas on the east side (before this weeks new storms)?

    And specifically, has anyone been down farther south (big pine, etc?) recently?

    Went 3/4 up the approach to Red Cone on Saturday before bailing due to strong wind, blowing snow, and running out of daylight. Later heard the bowl slid earlier that day, but don't have any confirmation.

    Skied TJ bowl from just below the crest yesterday. Nice shin to knee deep pow all the way down to the lake. It will be interesting to see how this weeks storm affects stability.

    Does anyone know what the skiable snow line is around Matterhorn or convict lake?

    I just flew over yesterday (Friday eve), the western 20% of the upper lake looked frozen/snow-covered.

    This was from 35,000’ so take that for what it is but I was very intently scoping it. Strangely, the hulk couloirs looked rocky which was confusing. Hopefully someone has been up there that has better beta.
