10" of wet Sierra Cement at the top of Squaw.
Rain at the base. It was a hideous rainy, slushy, foggy, wet snowy day yesterday in Truckee. Very depressing, as this is my first ever time skiing in Tahoe.
I skied at Sugar Bowl Yesterday and conditions were terrible. Thick, heavy wet crud with a thin crust in spots. Like a real bad day at Okemo, except you could get killed going over a cliff with the bad visibility and ice pellets sand blasting your face. Got soaking wet by noon, Gore Tex and all.
There is some beautiful terrain here. Skied Alpine Meadows on Monday, and loved the terrain also, but it seems like coming to Tahoe is a risky way to spend my cash.
I think I'll stick with Colorado or Utah in the future.
It's going to be 60 degrees in Truckee tomorrow? Geez, that's nice!?!??!!?
