I love rain, I just don't like most Californians driving in the rain Honestly though, I hope that turns into mad snow.

I was all bummed out looking at the dry, blue skies out my window. Looks like a change is on its way, though!

But I hope you're sending some coldness with that precipitation, cuz it is 50 degrees here at the Lake.

Finally, the rain is here! I have heard that the snow level should be dropping to 5,000 feet overnight...nice! :

I have to drive up tomorrow morning, hopefully the roads won't be too bad!

Looking at the top of 10,776' Mt Rose. Lots of black clouds, very warm and no wind. It sure doesn't feel like November! Radar looks good but I'd feel better with some wind.

It's windy here in Tahoe City, but still warm (47*).

It's stopped raining here

Wetness is coming down hard from the sky and temps at Lake level have dropped to 34*. At 6200 ft (lake level) it is slushing -- in between rain and snow, though closer to rain. But it looks like it is snowing at Sugarbowl's base (6880 ft)...

Look at North-Star's site. Snow above 8K. [img]null[/img]

Excellent -- I'm the only one in the office today in downtown SF with a huge grin about the weather.... hoping to be turning over Thanksgiving weekend. Anyone heard when Sugarbowl or Kirkwood might open?

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

P.S. I wanted more mad faces but it won't let you use more than eight. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

The rain turned to snow at lake-level about 30 minutes ago, and accumulation here is beginning to be noticeable.
post #19 of 29
Opening days sound kinda iffy, but Sugar Bowl is saying they might be open on Wednesday the 21st, and Kirkwood is saying maybe this coming weekend.

It would be nice to go out and make some turns, but even if they do open I expect it will be pretty limited to just a few runs...but hey, it is skiing so you won't hear me complaining!

I guess I better get moving on my quest for boots! :

Yee Haw! Keep the good news coming!!! I brought my new skis and bindings in yesterday and will have them mounted, waxed and ready to go over Thanksgiving!! I can't wait!!!

YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

forecast is for another cold front to hit by the end of the week. looks like you'll be skiing at thanksgiving...which begs the question why am I going to Whistler where its currently raining ?? :

just hope it clears enough so I can go play in the mud on my mtn bike, I'm not sure I'm ready to put the bike away [img]redface.gif[/img] maybe a good fix of that fluffy white stuff will cure my sickness.

Hey I hate to be a pooper but this storm is eerily (SP) like last years storms, moves from south to north with the Sierra getting half of what it could get with a west to east trajectory. Lots o' rain in the valleys and not enough snow in the Sierra. None the less it is snowing.

Storms always hit Tahoe in a counter-clockwise spin, therefore the winds are usually coming from the southwest toward the northeast.

I left Mammoth's main lodge (8,900') at 4pm, and it had just started dumping. Right now it is snowing hard in town, and sticking. We are supposed to get a foot to foot and a half by midnight. Today we had two runs open: Broadway (blue) and Fascination (Black). that should change real soon. Keep ya posted.

Look at us...we're nothing but a bunch of snow junkies looking for a fix. Our habit even leaves track marks - man we've got it bad.

I can see the police busting a "Ski House" now - masses of goretex and polar fleece clad individuals huddled around T.V.'s watching the Weather Channel.......

Well its Monday evening now and the storm is over in the Sierra. It's a start but not yet enough. There may be more during the next few days. -dave

Select: Squaw High Camp

Shows Squaw got 0.68 precip at High Camp which is maybe 7 inches of snow.
http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/queryF?cap

Shows Caples Lake which is the same elevation as Kirkwood's base and a half mile away received 0.96 inches though the first 0.4 inches until 3pm was a bit above freezing. Supporting that is that at 3:30pm the kirkwood.com web site reported the snow was begining to stick at the base. Up the ridge a few hundred feet all the precip was snow so is probably close to a foot.

The Mammoth Pass remote site showed just 0.36 inches so they got the shorter end of the stick.
