Snow In Tahoe?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
According to the Kirkwood website it's currently snowing and 18degrees.

Chains/Snow tires required over the pass, too!

Alpine is also reporting snow and 19degrees

Why did I schedule an important meeting for today? :

Taking tommorrow off and skiing tahoe, but where?

Thinking Sugarbowl for tommorrow but also considering Squaw and Alpine Meadows or even Kirkwood...? Such a heavy decision ..what do you guys think? Anyone else skipping school tomorrow?

which school? from lodi, it make sense for Kirkwood

If you have snow tires and you're in Lodi, Kirkwood seems like a no-brainer.

Kirkwoods 97 miles from house and sugarbowls 124 miles. I've always thought that Kirkwood inflated their new snow totals, but I do like skiing there.

My understanding of the track of this storm suggests that Kirkwood should've gotten hit at least as much as Sugarbowl, Squaw, and Alpine. (Homewood, apparently, is another story -- sounds like they got absolutely hammered.)

A grain of salt is a good thing. But so's saving a quarter of your driving distance. And you can check out the comp while you're at it.

^explains why my buddy who is on "sabbatical" (not quite sure what that means other than he's been traveling the world, skiing during the work week, and generally enjoying life while I slave away at the keyboard) headed to Homewood.

Either that or it's the $26 mid-week tickets.

I actually dig Homewood on serious powder days. They have some great tree runs. They're short, but usually very deep.

If this helps, as we left Tahoe at 9pm Monday, there was 2-3 iches of the ground in Stateline, and Carson Pass had to have at least 8 inches and getting hammered as we went over. It was also supposed to snow heavy until 4am. Weather Channel upgraded it to a foot plus over 7000 feet just before we left and I'm sure that was a bid underestimate from what I saw.

I got at least a foot on my deck at 6200'. Went to Sugar Bowl this morning. Windy but skiing was great, at least for the first hour after which the snow was getting heavy and I was getting beat up in the slop.

To the person who hopes "some of the sloppy leftovers are still around come the weekend". How to put this delicately ? Ummm But Disney was on wind hold so I haven't got to ripping that. Tomorrow :

Winter is back people! I was at Sugarbowl today. Blue skies, fresh snow and no crowds!

Little windy so they opened Disney only after noon. But definitely worth it!

Am going to Homewood this weekend (avoid spring break crowds).

Winter was back at Kirkwood. Had a windhold on most lifts during the morning, but 3/4's of the area opened up at noon and the skiing was nice. Sierra powder...bring the fat skis. It was close to two feet on the untracked and non-groomed areas. Had difficulty skiing it with my K2 Axis but it was still sweet. Tommorrow should be awesome there in the morning, hopefully chair 4 will run into the back bowl. Too bad Kirkwood doesn't expand into theose other back bowls. Anyways, I was dog tired when I got home tonight but it was a good day of skiing.
