Tahoe will deliver! 4+ feet of snow, inches of rain, a side of mashed potatoes.... But rest assured Tahoe will deliver, check it out, the season so far
cross country skiing is good!

"The big dump" was overrated, came in cold and windy, North and east facing winds made for tasty frosted flakes
Image

Good thing I oiled up my vibram soled, fine leather Italian snowboots.
Image

Days of sunshine cold temps and the snowpack is still sketch
Image

But, it was BOTTOMLESS
Image

Crescent and the sisters

"If there was just more snow" im sick of hearing that lately
Image

Skied firebreak free heel goofy style

http://vimeo.com/84501252 Good season so far. More snow would be nice but conditions a worth the suffering to get to.
That last 4 inch "dump" really helped. We had wind to transport snow a bit.

Impressive dedication to sniff out some fun little zones and good reminder that those areas still holding white stuff are facet factories.

Exciting sugar wallowing out there for the curious and motivated.
