I’m glad we did especially with the possibility of widespread wind slab issues. The temps were in the low to high teens all morning and the POW quality was amazing. We still need some more base but this was some of the lightest snow I’ve rode in the Sierra, 2-3′ of it. Great morning light. Thanks for the shots Jeff. Jeff pulling into the clearing. November 29, 2015 at 2:08 pm #786547 powderjunkie 1667 Posts Nice Colin, but only 1 pic is showing. Friday, we trudged up Stevens, for good turns up high, but a bad low tide exit. Storn and Brad Storn gettin’ the good stuff just before the heinous exit November 29, 2015 at 2:14 pm #786548 powderjunkie 1667 Posts November 29, 2015 at 3:45 pm #786549 Cbalke 237 Posts Nice @powderjunkie ! It does look thin there on the exit. How was it up top? Any wind slab issues? Hmm.. It’s showing all the images when I’m logged in and when I’m not. Are you still seeing only one image?

December 13, 2015 at 9:45 am #787118 aksltxlt 621 Posts Looked like 3 feet at carson pass, rain had soaked the snow pack b4 it snowed, I saw no signs of instability Best pow of season yesterday solid A quality pow Damn I look good snowing as of now in south shore. I hope the higher lakes start to freeze so I can get into some fun zones December 16, 2015 at 10:43 am #787241 powderjunkie 1667 Posts super cold yesterday morning around Carson Pass. It was socked in in the morning then cleared to beautiful sunshine. Perfect snow conditions, still bony in places. always good to see dishwasher Dave out too. December 17, 2015 at 3:43 pm #787279 aksltxlt 621 Posts Great pow out there last few days… More snow now than all of last season. Went out today (carson pass easy laps off the spur), snow was good till noon. then rapid warming, humid inversion….pow turned into rollerball and mash potato type December 21, 2015 at 8:17 am #787390 aksltxlt 621 Posts Fun weekend… It dumped at Carson pass, in town a few inches.. Good storm riding Imitationfunk gets pow on tallac As of now? South shore…. Its not raining nor is it snowing… Its snain January 11, 2016 at 10:24 am #788144 powderjunkie 1667 Posts A- grade of consolidated powder on north side of Ralston. No wind effect or crust layer in there. Beautiful day on Sunday. But, the south facing exit at sunset was brutal death crust, but worth the effort for two good laps. Storn splitbooted again. 🙂 Let’s see some pics splitboard.com crew. We had a blast February 22, 2016 at 2:38 pm #789747 powderjunkie 1667 Posts Tamarack had good snow still on Sunday, but some east facing was getting crusty. I counted over 80 tracks in hourglass area alone near end of day. It was pretty crazy and looked like a resort. Storn didn’t splitboot at all. 😉 Castle/Andesite was OK on Saturday. much more wind affected and transitioning quicker. The drive down 80 was the worst I have ever been in. Absolutely awful. March 15, 2016 at 6:13 pm #790513 aksltxlt 621 Posts Been riding a lot of kirkwood lately, maybe im gettin lazy, but I love hiking vista! Anyway snow has been wet/ heavy got out today 3-15 Hot, soft snow with pockets of pow, lower elevations got sticky. Tommorow? North facing trees that are wind protected and get high, maybe then Ill find some good pow today March 20, 2016 at 12:25 pm #790648 powderjunkie 1667 Posts Aaron- did you ride Comma? found winter snow and up to 3 inches of powder at sisters yesterday. got to centerpunch both north facing lines off the two sisters. also some windboard and some crap but all in all pretty fun and smooth turns. hope this next storm delivers, but looks like these warm storms are the norm now.
