I ski tahoe at least every week. It hasn't snowed significantly in two weeks. Last report (yesterday), would be rock-hard ice and frigid (10 degrees) in the morning, and warm (45) mush in the afternoon.
Likely to continue another 3-4 days, at least. Been moonless. Nice view of stars. :
fyi... current conditions of the tahoe area: boilerplate, under a slight (and i do mean slight) dusting of snow...deceptively tough conditions to ski. it has been so cold this last week, single digits in the mountains, and barely above freezing in the sunlight hours. all i have to say is...*miracle march*!!!
well suzieski... if this makes you feel better (it does me!) the weather channel is calling for a storm of some signif. to roll in wed-sun of next week, snow and maybe rain (hope not). so for what twc is worth [img]smile.gif[/img] we may be getting a little bit o the fresh stuff! keep your fingers crossed, mine will be!
I just returned last Sunday from skiing Heavenly,Squall,and Kirkwood.
Squall was rain and fog from bottom all the way to top.
Heavenly had good groomed conditions exept for hard spots in the shade and trees.
Kirkwood had the most snow but was always still wet when they groomed at night which made for some wicked furrows when it crusted over in the morning.
They all need snow.
Pleasant day at Alpine Meadows Monday, 2/10. Coverage is still good on piste, hard pack of course, cold at night and high in the low 40s. Beautiful, sunny day in the mountains. Hope this storm brings a wallop.
