Especially Squaw, Alpine and Northstar?
How is Tahoe skiing after the gazillion inches of heavy wet snow ????

Close to first tracks on Shirley were fun but heavy. Probably more than 5 feet fell but the rain packed it down a bit. No rocks and no ice up top. It will get firm quickly as there were quite a few skiers (but not outrageous while I was there) and it is quite warm. Up top may have snowed more than 5' as the cut from the avalanche that filled Shirley bowl was at least 5' - looked closer to 10'. North bowl off Headwall and West face of KT also avalanched badly. Siberia bowl is avalanche damaged as well. Granite looked tempting but with the warmth today it might get tough. Terrain may be limited in opening - but not for a lack of snow.
The base has decent coverage but got little new. Fun little bumps on Red Dog. Quite slushy.
