    I started riding a Class 3 Ebike with a throttle, seven days post op. There are a couple of real steep pitches near my house and the throttle helps me keep from over stressing my knee. Mentality and physicality, the ebike has really helped my recovery.

    I’m hoping to be skiing by Christmas and hitting 100 days this year.
    You should be fine by Christmas. I was able to get mine and keep my monthly streak going (with a 1,000 mile drive)

    Totally cherry picking here...but the morning GFS finally starts showing some salvation. This would kick start the season. The next run was not as optimistic, but it is nice to see the models starting to hint at a change...

    Question for the locals. I’m supposed to go to heavenly for my bday nov 27-5. Everything right now isn’t looking good weather wise. Are you guys hearing more positive things? I believe they stopped pumping snow again because of the heat.

    I’m a little freaked out by how many TKRs are on this forum!

    Too early to tell.
    Nothing great for natural in the 10 day forecast.
    Cold enough nights to blow, but over freezing during days...

    It could all change with one good AR + cold temps.

    Forecast looks cold, they should be able to make lots of snow. They will have a couple runs ready to go by then if the storms between now and then don’t produce, November skiing is typically a crap shoot, never know.

    You booked a ski trip in Tahoe in late November / early December? Not trying to be a dick, but... lol. Having said that we're looking at a nice pattern change in the extended forecast so you may just get lucky.

    Now that TahoeJ has gotten the being a dick thing out of the way, I always get a laugh from out-of-towers asking the locals about future weather. Like we have some shamanistic insight to whether or not it’s gonna snow in Tahoe on a certain date.
    We use the same weather apps as everybody else!
    Also, weather forecasts are just that: a prediction, albeit one based on studies and data, but a prediction nonetheless.
    The frickin’ forecast has changed more than a dozen times since Thursday, so asking about conditions 3 weeks in the future?

    Heckacali said it best: “too early to tell.”

    That said, Thanksgiving skiing in Tahoe is usually pretty sparse.
    You’d probably be better off going to CO at this point seeing as they are already spinning lifts at at least 4 resorts…

    At least the skiing was good (ymmv). Eventually another trapped soul showed up and he had a 12' winch/tree strap that we used to yank the gate open via my front tow hook.

    Sorry should have included her surgery was ACL, total tear but no other damage. He also put a leash in which he said he does with all athletes and people who are going to ski, play baseball or any other lateral sports. My wife is a total intermediate (accident happened on Ramp Run back to Gold Coast so nothing crazy) and he still put the leash in just to be safe. Supposed to help prevent total tears again.

    One decent storm can drop 3-6 feet in a couple days and open a whole resort (Kirkwood). Heavenly, though, is behind the crest and gets less snow from most storms. However they have a good snowmaking system, so maybe. Palisades and Sugar Bowl also catch a lot of natural snow. Tahoe Thanksgiving is tricky but can be a lot of fun (usually low angle if open). Christmas is a safer bet, and doesn't always deliver either. If you come, Mt Rose is coldest and will retain more of anything they get or make, or watch the reports to see who has runs open. I'm with Dookie - bail to CO or maybe MT. For November skiing, CO resorts are much better at making snow, and cold enough that it doesn't melt.

    Here's an article for UCL repair (complete with graphic photos) but same idea I believe. Dr A said it will limit the motion before another complete tear....or that is the idea.

    As in November 9, two days from now?

    The folks they hire on the 8th aren’t gonna receive much training…

    OnTheSnow is saying 11/10…

    https://www.onthesnow.com/lake-tahoe/projected-openings

    I question their dates, though. They list DSR as opening on 11/11, but if you go to the DSR website they are still promoting disc golf…

    The Reno Gazette Journal reports slightly different dates:

    https://www.rgj.com/story/news/2023/...g/71038802007/

    Then again, they include Mammoth as a Tahoe resort…
