    that's a big day, assuming your talking about the Wrights lake road? So I'm guessing you can get to the parking area just before the lake? last time I tried to go up there I got closed down by snow well before that gate. Some areas I like to mountain bike up there so if I can get to the gate now that good news.

    It is Wrights Lake road, and you can park in the lot that is just before the entrance gate to the lake. It was a big day, but only 6 hours round trip, which isn't too bad.

    For those searching for summer turns on the Northish side of the Lake:

    2nd gate at Blackwood Canyon is still closed (the one by the river); was told by some mtn bikers that the road is pretty clear of snow, but the Ellis Peak Trail is still covered in snow.

    Gate at Castle Peak is open; Basin Peak is still pretty much top-to-bottom and there's a nice swatch of snow between the outer rim of Coon Canyon and Frog Lake Cliffs.

    Mt. Lola and the surrounding area is holding nicely (North facing aspect of Lola, ridge above Perazzo Cliffs on the PCT, White Rock Lake area, Webber Peak, etc.)

    A little lost and found stoke

    Early last december I buried my snow saw in a pit on Castle Peak. Dug around for a while but couldn't find it so I dropped a pin and figured I'd get it when it melts out.

    Just under 9 months later I found it melted out. What a rad winter.

    For those of you still making turns there are several lines that still connect through in the backside there.

    Thought I'd post some trail stoke from last weekend. Beautiful weather, thought I'd try a tour I wanna to this weekend - Rose, Houghton, Relay, Rose Knob Peak, Incline Peak. Turned out to be a dick kicker of a run, but got some decent pics

    FWIW, the lingering summer patches in the Carson Pass region are skiing really nice right now.

    A member of the Kirkwood Mountain Resort ski patrol hasn’t been seen since Aug. 3 and his family is hoping the community can help locate him.

    John Greever, 38, left his home near Georgetown School on foot at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday without his cell phone, GPS watch, vehicle or beloved dog, according to Greever’s younger sister Robin Waskowiak.

    Greever, who grew up in Georgetown and is on the Kirkwood ski patrol, was wearing a gray T-shirt, black shorts and a blue baseball cap. He is described as 5-feet, 7-inches tall and weighing 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

    Search and Rescue teams have searched the Georgetown area, finding scent trails in the Georgetown Nature Area and along Wentworth Springs Road, Waskowiak said.

    Anyone with information that could help find Greever is asked to contact the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office at 530-626-4911.

    Might have us a late summer corn harvest at the end of the week...

    Forecasted temps (at least in the Truckee area) are projected to be hovering in the mid/high 20s-to-low 30s at night with 66+ degrees in the daytime over the next several days...
