    Anyone want a single 2 pc adjustable BD pole, free, before I throw it out? Aluminum upper, carbon lower. Carbon doesn't work well for self arrest which is why there's only one. The last time I broke one I found a taker for the other one in the Funi on my way down the mountain.

    anyone know what the Jakes snow line is? Can you skin from the usual parking area near the Bliss HQ and how is the low stuff near there?

    I took OG's pole. It was glorious!

    Thanks for the pole, enjoy the beer, and here's some stoke from December.

    In general there's little or no snow below 7800' in South Tahoe. As a fellow jong who prefers to skin from the car, I've been skiing Carson Pass; Luther might go, not sure about Echo.

    Snow levels are all over the place, got up to 8600 on the monument peak trail above high meadows 3 days ago, north facing in Meyers riding up the bottom of toads snow line is about 7300. 4 days ago we tried to drive up to wrights lake and got shut down at 6500.

    Saw this pic of Echo lake today taken on June 3rd

    Rallied for a dusk patrol up Sunrise Bowl this evening.
    Snow is still to the road (Ski Slope and Glacier Way, depending on your start/exit points).
    Skinned up around 7:10 and was back at the truck by 7:53.
    Top half is dimpled, but smooth.
    Bottom half is sun-cupped and runnelled to hell, but the snow is holding up.

    Found Countor GPS at the bottom of Chute 75

    Long-time lurker...

    I found a Contour GPS at the bottom of Chute 75 over 4th of July a couple of years ago. I finally got around to plugging it in - it still works. Looks like it was lost in 2012. I know it's old at this point but maybe it'll make the owners day to have it returned.

    Since my account is new I can't post links/video right away so hopefully I can get those added in the next few posts.

    Squaw was pretty good (for June) this past weekend even though the freezing temps didn't really happen. The entire mountain was pretty much available if you wanted to do some hiking. Granite not quite to the liftline after hiking Emigrant. KT available from Reverse Traverse/CII. KT is dirty/a little sun-cupped but all it needs is a little more traffic to scrape away the top layer. This is the last weekend for Sibo so KT will take some more effort after that.

    OFFICIAL TAHOE 18/19 STOKE, CONDITIONS, WEATHER THREAD

    Really had no intention of skiing today after working the legs pretty good at Mammoth for two days. Besides looked like the low was gonna be around 50 degrees up on the hill overnight. Gimpy was counting on summer time consolidation to be in place, and had a mission in mind, he bailed to work that must be a first! Went anyway and east facing skied great at 9:00 am.

    not that it matters any more since we're in for a good freeze but were you finding that at all elevations (ie, was the consolidation going on up high too?)
    Down under like 9,2k i've been finding good conditions on warm days in the early afternoon. either way sat/sun look to be money.

    Squaw was pretty good fun today.
    Hella crowded, with the new $5 Fridays crowd. Then wind shutdowns meant only Big Blue & Shirley for a bit, so seemed jammed.
    RevTrev, from Siby, is still a go, but bare rock to hike across now on top, enroute to Hogsback or N.Bowl.
    Snow quality in general was way better than last Sat. Helped by cool temps well into the afternoon and having so many peeps there today - skier traffic wise.
    Suncups on unskied were b,b,b,bouncy...!
    Even MtnRun skied good at end of day...except for the mud section near the end...yes we ski'd it!
    Not a good idea when you hafta shoulder your muddy skis back to the car tho...

    ^^^Do they lack snow for Sibo? Or just don't want to spend the money. Seems if the crowds are coming out, it makes sense to keep it spinning and keep folks wanting to ski. Mammy spun 5 today and Friday starting late morning.
