    It’s Friday, it’s raining and the Shasta forecast looks really good.

    Did not want to exclude our southern cascade and socal splitters so this thread will be all of California……….and western Nevada. Hell, why not.

    Is it snowing?

    Does anyone know how the Eastern Sierra area did after that last storm cycle? It seemed like a good amount of precipitation (for October) but it looks like the snow levels were pretty high.

    There is snow to ride in Tahoe and Mammoth if you get really high…like above 8500 feet…and if you don’t mind low tide and lots of sharks…

    Splitboarding is the answer unless Splitbooting is the answer, either way we're going snowboarding because America!

    Armpit deep at CP…if you’re sitting down.
    Great deep pow, requires pretty steep terrain to stay on top, and there is still some stuff lurking below the surface.

    Only been out three times in North Tahoe so far…hiked Alpine Meadows twice and took a few laps at Castle Peak above the Grub Hut – Castle was before the storm and was still great – Alpine on Sunday was good up high but the bottom flat section killed me – way too deep! Anyway, will be getting the next few days so hope to post some TRs…

    Did one lap on West Shore today (too tired and run down from day before to do more :(). rughty and myself broke our own trail to our favorite tree run, but soon realized it’s a boulder field up high when it doesn’t have 15 feet of snow on it.
    Snow was amazing and turns were still great. Just can’t open it up yet in this area.

    Red Lake Peak is in great condition. Skintracks are in from below and from CP. Some windslabbage up high in the entranceways, but nothing observed moving in the runs. A small natural or two visible on south facing terrain terrain towards Stephens.

    Rode a couple laps around Silver Peak north of Squaw on Thanksgiving. Great snow on all the east and north east facing aspects. South aspects are starting to get sun affected and many of the ridges with any west or southwest exposure are completely scoured of snow from the wind. But some pretty amazing coverage for November, and it looks like the cold temps will allow the north and north east exposures to stay good for quite a while to come.

    Here’s my buddy topping out.

    Did a couple of laps on Incline Lake Peak yesterday…obvioulsy lots of snow for November but Mt. Rose didn’t get as much as the West Shore so there is still a fair amount of boulders, shrubs, etc. Looks like more pow in the forecast for the weekend. Plan to get out at least once…

    Awesome turns off Carson Pass on Friday. Zero cars in the roundtop parking lot at 9AM. WTF?!? Nice having the place to ourselves though.

    First turns of the season… pretty nice!

    It was a very nice start to the season. We found heaps and heaps of blower on the west shore on Saturday but I left me camera in the pack because of the storm.

    Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

    Good day on Bliss today. Ran into Jeremy Jones and Ryland Bell on top. Good to see the heavy hitters out and about.

    Good write up about Red Lake Peak avi(s) on the SAC site.

    The SAC site has a much larger/better quality version of this pic and also a crown profile. It’s worth reading.
