    By Wednesday, we should be able to start the real new Tahoe thread...or I can start it and call it the Unofficial Tahoe 18/19 (Insert cool tag here) thread. Wait...I am totally over that. Paging the long gone Racoon Face or the more recent Lepistoir!

I'll post full reports on Snowbrains...just trying to get through Back to School at 3 different schools. Yep.

    Tried to find it all night last night but was unsuccessful. It’ll be my first time attending so I’m pretty stoked.

    Drove over Rose about 2:30 this afternoon, Rose proper and Relay Ridge were legitimately dusted and there was even a faint spackling along the road, but that could've been hail.

    Oh yeah, and Blizzard of Aahhh' s in Truckee

    I'll be there for the third year in a row. Stoked that it doesn't include a drive to south lake this time. If anyone hasn't been or is on the fence, you should go. It's a great start to getting the wheels turning toward winter and safety. It is not really intended as a training or refresh or anything like that (I was thrown a bit year 1) . Typically, it includes a rundown summary of last year's avalanche incidents and snowpack followed by some discussion about the upcoming year weather guesses. Then its a bit of a grab bag of finding out about new technology or ongoing research and typically a guest speaker who shares some of their experiences either in an incident or as a pro, etc.

    Definitely worth it and I've just made it a habit as part of the preseason prep.

    I still like beer. Sometimes I have too many, sometimes others do. I like beer.

    If you like beer and snow (this Venn diagram must be almost a perfect circle), you will like CAW.

    In incline village there is high altitude (climbing) gym. nice showers and relax area too.
    blue granite climbing gym just opened in SLT, but i've yet to go in the bathrooms. it's unfinished so i don't know what the total situation would be. they're fully open now climbingwise while finishing up and the grand opening is 10/28 with all the amenities

    I worked out at the rec center gym last year--I don't recall showers--there's not a proper locker room--just some cubbies in the workout area (bring your own lock). I haven't used the pool; it must have a shower I assume.

    They’re making quite the branding push with IKON. Did anyone else order season passes for the whole family and only the primary account holder’s pass showed up?

    Beautiful day trail running off of rose summit today.

    Wish I had gone up north a few hours, though -

    There is an army of tree crews working highway 88. Two large staging areas near Pioneer. The road looks terrific and trees cut in the tens of thousands is not an exaggeration. And the views now, omg.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.
