    If anyone notices Woods Lake Rd/parking lot off 88 open...please post on here. The alpine county site doesn't update that often.

    I'm headed to Telluride on and off for the month of July, so not too worried about getting a ton of snow time in before then (record year there as well)...but I do have a TON of kid baseball management this month.

    But where? Only gate i'm aware of is just past the trailhead. So maybe just the campground is closed til July? Unless there is a gate just past where the dirt road heads off to the left because otherwise you could use that road to bypass any gate (the 4x road parallels the main road and has access points at the top and in the passing lane).

    They only gate the campgrounds, probably drive over this afternoon to pick a a season parking pass, if I do I'll check out the woods lake access to see if it's snow free.

    There has got to be some hungry fish in Crater Lake with it melting so late. Kirkwood looks so fat still, but I will focus on the hungry fish...

    FWIW, road to Woods Lake was covered in snow July 4th weekend of Ď17. Further in than .1mile, but I donít think I was able to get 1/2 mile in that year.

    Thinks are stacked. I wonít be around, but wonder if KW will allow skis to board the sightseeing lift on July 4 weekend this year. Just a few weeks to go and it looks better than it did in Ď05.

    Squaw was entertaining yesterday although no freeze and Gold Coast runs were slow right from the start. A few of the shady groomers off Shirley had a bit of a freeze but didn't last too long. Explored a bit and hiked the Funnel and up near Corkscrew but snow was pretty summery, slidey and slow. Ended up hiking Palisades to ski National and hit North Bowl from the top with permission from Patrol. North Bowl was by far the best being mostly a minimal bumpy non super-slush corn lap with an adequate pitch.

    Chickadee Ridge tweren't half bad this morning.
    Dimpled slalom tree run with soft-serve consistency.
    Not a soul around, either (except for a few slednecks on the other side of the highway and some foreign tourists committing snowplay).

    Quite the variable conditions up in the Rose Knob Peak area today.
    East facing slopes were dimpled with swatches of suncups and runnels. I actually caught a tip on my second run and did a single ejection tomahawk.
    North facing slopes were actually quite bulletproof around 2:30.
    South facing slopes provided the straight Rockefeller action with summer solstice soft-serve goodness.
    Long, but entertaining day (the approach from Incline is nothing but straight vert!).
    Insane views, though. We could see across the lake and got a hazy glimpse of Lassen to boot.

    While admittedly I have not eaten at every single Mexican restaurant around the Lake, I think that today I may just have had the best damn burrito I've ever had in Tahoe/Reno area to date. FWIW, I am comparing the burritos I've had in the area to those I regularly ate when I lived in San Francisco, which basically had 3 Mexican joints on every block in the Mission and charged between $5 and $10 for a veggie burrito the size of your thigh.

    Frescana Mexican Bistro in Meyers (which came highly recommended by Vets) had an amazing vegan buritto (I know, a vegan burrito????). Granted, it was a bit pricey ($15), but it was the size of my forearm and loaded with amazing flavor. There were at least another 1/2 dozen tantilizing items on the menu, too, thus mandating a return visit at some point.

    I'd be interested to hear what the SLT locals (Gimpy, TahoeBC, Powdork, Spats et al) recommend on the Mexican food front...

    Iím not local but Iím a fan of that place, too. Itís never been busy when Iíve been in so more business would be good.

    Verde at the Y in south lake is pretty solid also.

    Anna's in NW Reno is the best Mexican in the entire Reno/Tahoe area. Macho Tequila in Sparks is pretty darn good too. Can't speak to their burritos though as I don't ever eat them.

    Is Robertos still around SLT? I havenít been there in years, but the pork butt king, who tahoebc knows, recommended it to me, and Ďtwas good. Their salsa bar was really good.

    Good to hear about the spots in Reno/Carson. went to a tamale place in Carson city a few years ago, and that was awesome.

    the original verde chef, who was behind the creation of their entire menu, parted ways with them and opened up his own place which is frescana. both are great, albeit pricey. my go to mex in slt is jalisco
