    Good point. Alpine switching to weekends may make for an excellent corn harvest.

    Alpine was money today. I love winter but damn do I love some spring turns.

    Did a quick probe in my yard earlier, 218 cm average on the sunny, non wind loaded side of my house. Canít even imagine what I would get on the other side. Itís gonna be a great spring.

    minimal freeze but way better then expected up high on the pass. our tracks were already recycled on drive home 4 hrs later. until we get a solid freeze, getting back to rig by 9:30 is best if skiing anything solar. i think westish facing is the most consolidated right now and best bet if out after 10. kirkwood skied well today and while the thimble hike is posted closed, the backside is looking tight. skinning from bottom to ski thimble by 8:30 before lifts pop would be great i bet. 2 is closed but vista is well worth the skin up for an afternoon slack lap. 10 was closed by 1:30 when we left. not sure if early close or mechanical

    With my kid on spring break today we decided to take advantage of the warm weather and spent the day up at Rose.

    Place was empty as seen by how few cars were in the Slide lot.

    Did a few laps in Manzanita bowl early, which were fun. On the traverse back in it sure looked tempting to ski another 1000 ft down as the corn snow looked prime. Someone had set a skin track from the bottom back up to the resort already.

    Slightly off thread, I was out in Elko yesterday and the Ruby's are holding a ton of snow still if anyone is looking for some spring hiking outside the Tahoe area. Heading down to Mammoth for the weekend and hoping to find slightly cooler temps.

    I had to come back east today on the red eye because the kids are in school tomorrow, but my wife is staying out a couple more days. She texted me to say that the refreeze made for an Easter Miracle and great corn as I was driving home from the airport. Hey, thanks, awesome, argh. I put storage wax on the Enforcers and did a ton of laundry though. I am going to summit and ski Shasta next month, so all is not lost!

    Just the one. 12 going on 21.

    Tahoe is way closer than Mammoth. Until the passes open.

    Good skiing to be had at KW for final day, today.
    No security backpack searches.
    Snowball bombardment for final chairs.
    Fingers/Olympic/Pallisades hella fun

    Yesterday (Saturday 4/20) was perhaps the wonkiest day I've had all season at The Star (fwiwm, my season easily reached 100+ days, albeit all at a resort and all teaching 4-to-6 y/o groms how to rip groomers and safely ski trees). Snow in the AM was compacted speed slush that quickly turned into grippy smashed taters; from 2-to-3:30 it was some of the stickiest snow I've skied all season.

    Today (Sunday 4/21) was a complete switcheroo. First off it started snowing at my abode (roughly 6500 feet in Truckee) around 7 am and then it snowed a wee bit at The Star in the pre-noon hours. The snow was bonafide soft-serve with a smattering of smearable cream cheese (some of y'all's definition of corn is a bit off, imho). The snow actually began to re-set around 3 pm in the shade.
    The grom in my charge and I lapped the same run about 1/2 dozen times throughout the day (4 y/o's kinda like routine) and it was creamy from start-to-finish.
    Good final day at The Star, for sure.
    Ended it all with serious apres at Copper Lane where all tap beers were "PBR Priced"...so I drank a few Truckee Brewing Company hazy's for $2.95 a pop.
    Boo.
    Yaa.

    Let the glorious spring/summer/autumn of Tahoe patch-skiing commence!

    Clouds hung over our peak today and broke just as we topped out, nice Easter corn. Friends over on Tallac hung out on the summit for two hours in pea soup before pulling the plug cause they were freezing, by the time we got done the clouds lifted over there also.

    Surprisingly awesome skiing at heavenly today. Clouds and a nippy breeze kept the slush nice and buttery! Well... till at least 130, when I left.
