    Doesnít the snow need to be relatively fresh to harvest corn? Would this be more like milled corn?

    How are those patches holding up?

    Well it dusted up on Mt Rose Hwy yesterday and some forecasts are hinting at another dusting at higher elevations over the weekend.

    Have not skied any Tahoe area patches in awhile, but Dunderberg was solid over Labor Day.

    Prolly gonna hit something "local" (Lola or Castle or Carson) on Friday...

    I see that the Wu-Tang Clan Patches are still in full effect...

    And The October Patch looks HUDGE, relatively speaking.

    Talking to Mrs L2S about a month either at Mammoth (April 2020) or Tahoe (March 2020). Longer drive to Tahoe for sure. Is AM/Squaw just to much of a shit show now because of the Ikon hoards? She likes Tahoe more than Mammoth, but I think skiing at Mammoth (weekdays) may be less crowded. What do you guys think? And thanks.

    My experience last year was that Squalpine is busier than Mammoth, particularly so midweek on a powder day because thereís a significantly larger population of strong local skiers in Tahoe. That said, Alpine takes a long time to track out with all the sidestepping involved, longer than Mammoth.

    An extra 3 hours of driving each way to Tahoe seems inconsequential if youíre going for a month.

    midweek tahoe shouldn't be too bad, except maybe on a storm day with only lower mountain open. Tahoe powder gets cooked pretty quickly when the sun comes out in March. March at Mammoth not an option?

    I am not really worried about powder dayz. Just trying to avoid the crowds as much as possible. By April, Mammoth is typically skiing great and the crowds are greatly diminished.

    Liv2ski, you normally ski Mammoth, no? Tahoe in March is awesome. Give it a shot. There are more locals midweek than Mammoth but it's not bad after March 1!

    For the rest of y'all -- is Boreal the only option for night skiing? Thinking about doing some midweek night skiing next year with the kids. And I think Squaw isn't doing it anymore.
    sproing!

    Yes on Boreal.
    The nights only pass was always a good deal in the past, but it seems
    to have gone up a bit (used to be $125 for adults, but now appears to be the same price for everybody regardless of age)

    No on Squaw

    This is pretty cool. Tahoe200.
    Bunch of kooks running the whole way around the Lake Tahoe Rim Trail.
    Not stopping for night. Started today, finish Sunday.
    You can see where they are here, each of them has a SPOT.

    So... my family has ikon base passes to compliment our KW pass this coming year. We will mostly still ski KW during the winter, but plan to hit up Squaw/Alpine late winter and early spring. Maybe even try a mid winter day if we get a low coverage year and all the BA folks bail on winter.

    Any recs for lodging on the north shore? We have an 8 year old, so need at least room for thee horizontal bodies. We are not dentist, so in valley, and most of Truckee is out of our budget typically. Unless ya got a hook up.

    Would love to show my son Alpine, and while he has been to Squaw, never before late April. It is a totally different place when there is snow on the golf course.

    I was gonna suggest the same thing, but guessing educatedly that L2S and the Mrs. have IKON passes given that Mammoth is their "home" mountain...

    And c'mon, MTT, givin' away all the secret stashes. At least you didn't hype SB, SS, and DSR.

    ^^^^ MTT, I have a Ikon pass and I do really like to ski AM. Love Mt Rose, but why pay when I have the pass? I may hit Sugar Bowel, as I have never been there. Ottime, I will pm you if we stay in Tahoe as we are looking at a big place for the two of us. Your family would have to like big wolfy dogs though.

    Was just going to check in here to ask who is going to start the 19/20 thread and when?

    Then I read some of the recent posts. L2S and Ottime (and all), the new MrsSinecure and I are moving to Tahoe full time in November. I just told my boss, so now I can post about it here (my boss is Otto Parts). We're seriously considering AirBnBing a couple of the rooms in our house to help fund the relocation - and because we like people. We'd probably be open to some sort of short term (long term by AirBnB standards) folks in the spring. I'm not looking to rent any rooms for a full-time housemate though.

    We bought a house in Alpine two seasons ago when the availability of ski leases tanked. We've been loving it and finally made the decision this summer to make it a permanent arrangement.

    You've been here long enough to know better than to start the eventual argumental shit storm of what constitutes a new season!

    That said, it is still 18/19 as far as I am concerned. For me, new, skiable/rideable snow = new season.

    Then again, last/this year's thread was started at the end of August and the season is still going (i.e. still lottsa snow on CP, Mt. Lola, and elsewhere.

    Dunno what that says to those who are superstitious...

    Didnít you say it snowed a fresh coating on rose? How many inches needed for the new season to begin? We need answers.

    My son loves big dogs. Nice on the life change Sincure. Will be in touch with the both of ya as this season pans out. When it officially starts.

    NPAC is starting to spin off storms, so that is good.

    Snowbrains is basically saying 19/20 season started 9/10.
    https://snowbrains.com/tahoe-first-snow-yesterday/

    I disagree with them, though.


    For me, the new snow has to 1. Stick around, not melt away right after it falls and 2. Be skiable/rideable.

    Tuesday's brief snow fall did not meet either of those parameters.

    That said, whatever app Powdork uses to track his snow days already started the 19/20 season like 2 weeks ago.



    Somebody needs to track down Racoonface. He'd know what to do!

    I wish I had a choice but oftpiste.org says it changed on September 1 and .org so you know it’s for real. And it’s the only possible way I’ll get 100 days this year so I’m going with it.Click image for larger version.
