    Conditions are great for early Oct. even better than last years Oct snow. Skinned right from the snopark to the objective only bootpacked the last 50ft to the top, pretty funny cause we saw two skiers and they were carring skiis and BOOTPACKING Lol
    BTW it was snowing the whole time, and in my opinion the snow should still be good on Sat for all the weekend warriors :headbang:

    RT last weekend

    Snowing now…but the wind is nuking and snowfall totals for the weekend are supposed to be meager…

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

    Wow. How depressing is Tahoe right now? I guess we’ll bring our hiking boots when we come down on Tuesday.

    We walked about 1/2 mile out Blackwood canyon today and then took a right and scrambled up the canyon wall to the ridge, then walked back that to Stanford Rock (the head of Ward Canyon were the Apline Meadows Sherwood chair starts).

    This is up high on the canyon wall. Zero snow out in the open on southern exposures:

    Pretty bleak on top:

    We briefly wore snowshoes on top, but mostly just because we had brought them along. There really was no pressing need.

    Went out to Castle Peak on Christmas Day – the approach road was really icey and we boot packed out Andesite Ridge, which was bare. Rode/skied the NW slope of Castle above the Grubb Hut and the snow was really good sugar/pow with some mixed in crust…thin coverage, of course. Trying to post pics but still having issues.

    A lot of walking for a little bit of riding, but a fun adventure nonetheless.

    edit:

    I’ve not gotten out, except some logging roads at the end of my road just to walk to the dogs for a few hours, but it’s been snowing since Tuesday night and it’s not let up much at all here in the Trinity Alps! Watching the forecast and precip maps, seeing the rain/snow/slush falling out of the sky here in town and I’m led to believe that by the time this storm abates, not expected to until tuesday with chances of snow continuing on for the next few days, there’ll have fallen at least 4-6′ of snow up in the mountains! That said, it’s fallen on dry ground as our last snow was in early November.
