    Ive seen no forecast data supporting a strong La Nia. Wheres that kid getting that? At any rate, the NOAA guesstimates on early/late winter consistently show about average precipitation amts and perhaps slightly warmer temps for NorCal, so I dont see anything to get alarmed about or excessively stoked about. :shrug: https://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/produc...nal.php?lead=3

    Wonder how many of the Bay Area WFH transplants will still be here come next winter.
    A friend of mine rented her house this summer while she relocates for a couple years. When she listed it one couple from the bay area looking for a "life style change" looked at her snowblower in the garage and asked if that was the lawn mower Yea no way she was renting it to them.

    Well it's just a matter of time before the outrage about discovering berms at the bottom of the drive show up. Hopefully.

    And a cold, gloomy spring with a slow thaw plus a decent April & even a bit of May snowfall.
    Reaching for that snow shovel in May should be the final demoralizing blow that gets them to:

    Been out of town for most of the last month or so, did a quick ride on the cartoon network in Truckee yesterday. Anyone know what's going on there? Seems our welcome has worn out on some of those trails. Just more logging, or something else going on?

    I heard HKP has a reroute at the bottom cleanup in the middle and logging at the top...

    Both J (not jackass) and HKP have logging going on until - I think - Oct 23 or so. There was a sign out there the other day.

    Cool, was thinking logging, but you never know when some dumbass might get hurt and try suing and ruin it for everyone, glad that's not the case. Also, is there some holiday this weekend that I am unaware of? Both TC and SLT and everything in between were packed like a weekend in July. West shore around Bliss to Emerald Bay was actually by far the most crowded I've ever seen. So much for an offseason, but good for businesses that can maybe make up for losses earlier in the year.

    And the asshole level was epic.

    It's part of the development going in at the mouth of Coldstream canyon. I believe the road work in the area is for a roundabout to replace the 4 way stop.
    I don't know what the ultimate impact will be on access to the canyon. Probably will have to be accessed through the park.

    Saturday was absolutely crazy there too. The Rim Trail from 50 to snow valley peak was fairly quiet, at least. But man that last half of the loop into LTNSP was not fun.

    Forecasts seem to be all over the place right now, but looks like some rain/snow for the basin next weekend?? Snow levels around 8,000 feet Saturday morning, closer to 9k by afternoon. And for what its worth, this time it seems like the forecast over the past few days has been trending towards precip, rather than away from it.

    Agreed that's probably for the roundabout. Hopefully they can get it in before winter? Cutting it very close

    It seems like they're also consolidating access to coldstream though -- they graded the road off of south shore drive and built a berm blocking access above the train tracks. I think you can still drive up the canyon if you go thru the fee station

    They also shut the gate at south shore drive but maybe they always do that in the beginning of oct? I can't remember.

    I like it. I have always appreciated limbs and those who go out on them. It's nice to have BA (but inside a week, he's not much different from NWS). What would really impress me is somebuddy who would lay their money down two weeks out and then we see what happens, instead of a noncommittal forecast that keeps getting updated as we get closer. If you can make your final prediction the day of, you're usually pretty accurate.
