    Same here! In theory ski team has one more camp scheduled. We will see of there is enough snow for hill space. We will be there though. Likely on old skool Legend pros, blue sweet protection helmet.

    They really should rename the Spring Skiing Capital

    Oh, yeah, and the grooming crew would like to remind everyone that they want to go home soon. This was at 2:14, you can see people still coming down:

    Anybody have suggestions for some chill touristy hikes that will be melted out next weekend? Generally would be biking or climbing after skiing but the friends I will be with do neither and also have never been to CA before.

    The walk around Convict Lake is flat and takes a tourist about an hour to circumnavigate

    I just did a walk through Panum Crater. Somehow I overlooked it for many years. One of the weirdest places I've ever seen, easy and worth it.

    Also Rock Creek is amazing. 168 up to the Whites is huge too, can walk through the Bristlecone Pine forest.

    My kid enjoyed Obsidian Dome a few years ago. Short hike. The incline up is decent, but then you just wander around some rocks with views of the crest nearby.

    Thanks for the recs all! Altitude shouldn't be a problem, they're accomplished skiers (way better than me) and used to it's affects, just been trapped in the flatlands the past few years.

    There's also the trail around the town, it's a nice mellow walk for the afternoon now that the skiing days are short, and you can check out the historic cabin.

    I second Obsidian Dome. It doesn't look like much until you hike up into it, then it is a lunar landscape (aside from the odd tree). It is a really cool mix of tuff, pumice and obsidian that you can just wander around in. Get off the road, and you could literally be on the moon.

    Thinking about Mammoth this weekend for the close, figure I'd sleep in my truck off the scenic loop. Anyone else dirtbagging?

    5/27 Edit: Thanks guys, looking at weekend of 6/4 instead.

    Yeah, new closing date June 5th. I will be in town 6/1-6/6 for skiing and climbing.

    Anybody been up around Lake George? Hoping to do Crystal Crag if the approach is reasonable.

    A recent report said there is snow on the trail shortly after leaving George on the way to Crystal. Here's a pic from Crystal (not mine).

    Yeah, we had to throw some warmer clothes in the car.

    The lower temperatures are going to mess with the Yacht Club theme for Saturday.

    Forecast out this morning is for a little more warmth. 45F at McCoy on Sunday for a high is much much better.

    We will be around Sunday through Tuesday. Skiing Sunday, and likely skiing and biking on Monday and Tuesday. Might even get a lap on the bike in Saturday night after the park closes.

    Packing has been fun. Not worried about having our warm day ski clothes with us as much.

    The weekend should be fun. Today was surprisingly empty, and the snow was skiing better than I was expecting.

    Here's how Stump Alley looked today:




    If it gets crowded tomorrow, skiing down Stump Alley is going to be a "fun" challenge.

    Wow!!!

    Stump Alley has lost quite a bit of snow since I saw you guys up there!!

    Hopefully it will warm up a bit for you guys. I would assume there are still some nice slush turns to be had.

    I keep hoping one of you guys will head down to Mule Days and do a trip report......
