Well sure, but since it was during the month of February in the past they wanted to roll the dice.

They would have been spectactular stages around the lake and then up to Northstar for the finish.

I would have enjoyed watching them race on the slush covered road up to the finish....  popcorn.gif

May is normally very spring-like in Tahoe. This year is like February. It is among the all-time most snowy winters and the low temperatures and precip this week are record-setting. The ski areas are still in nearly mid-winter or early spring conditions.  In past years Squaw has looked like this at the end of May:
