The end of the road is next to the Trumbull Lake CG, and even though it’s not open, there should be flat snow there. Thunderstorms are a possibility, so be prepared. If it gets really really bad, there’s always Bridgeport or Lee Vining to retreat to.

Then you could plow out a camping area for us. 😀 you were reading my mind… Will we be tenting out @ the parking lot or car camping? I don’t mind either way but gear will change accordingly. Matt, are you our ring leader? May 11, 2005 at 8:31 pm #582274 SmokinFatBob 76 Posts @mtnrider wrote: Will we be tenting out @ the parking lot or car camping? I was planning on not bringing a tent and sleeping in my truck, but if the general consensus is to bring tents and sleep away from the trucks, then that’s cool too.

Driving to Mammoth after work Friday. Pack up gear and drive to VA Lakes Saturday morning. Yay! I’m glad to hear you guys are going! Have you been getting lots of use out of your new board? Kelly, haven’t seen you since the Avy course! The last time I used the splitboard was . . . see SFB’s post !!! Can’t wait to get on it again! May 12, 2005 at 3:48 am #582277 Matt 77 Posts I am no ringleader, mtnrider. I’ve just been there recently so I’m trying to help. I’ve got a super kewl rental minivan since my car’s at the bodyshop, so I’m sleeping in it. But I’m bringing a tent too in case. Parking will be in a single file, I guess. Some unlikely but possible problems this weekend. – No restroom facilities – buried up to the eaves in snow (known fact) – Not enough parking, so some may have to shuttle in close. – Neighbors in the nearby cabins complaining to the authorities about us. – Some random authority passing by and deciding we shouldn’t be there. People camp there often but usually there’s a parking lot open. – Thunderstorms (“slight chance” says NWS) – prolly snow up that high but it could rain, maybe lightning. Civilization is close, so nothing is that big of a deal. May 12, 2005 at 3:49 am #582278 Matt 77 Posts Doh!, double post… 😳 May 12, 2005 at 6:57 pm #582279 powderjunkie 1666 Posts Can we have a green room brought in? The locals in the cabins should really like that. We could let the fishermen use it too. No wait, that may be a bad idea. 😆 Personally, I don’t mind if there are no facilities, but my wife on the other hand….? May 13, 2005 at 2:25 pm #582280 bcrider 4149 Posts Some recent Va Lakes stoke! 5/11/05 and a viddy from last year. (tele onlyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦sorry 😉 ) http://splitboard.com/vids/cornfest04small.wmv the normal parking lotÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we’ll be down the road just a little. ps. Special mission for those that arrive early. Keep an eye out for a nice spot to have some afternoon fun on Saturday. A little kicker or jib right next to camp would be cool for some fun. 🙂 May 13, 2005 at 3:42 pm #582281 mtnrider 740 Posts Wow 😯 That is such a rad picture…heaps more snow compared to last season. May 13, 2005 at 4:16 pm #582282 fassnor 36 Posts Oh waouh! the casting crew for bcrider’s next killer vid, the perspective of the snow-buried green rooms… Matt’s kewl rental minivan… and hmmm, of course VA lakes (heard it’s even better than Mt Rose! isn’t it Matt?) I AM IN. 🙂 Anybody looking to share a ride from the Bay Area? I couldn’t convince my girl that this was THE 🙂 place to be this week end, so I’ll have to make the looong drive by myself if no-one is coming from down here. PJ, are you from the bay area? can you strap me and my split on your roofrack ? 🙂 Matt, I am bringing a BIG bottle of chartreuse 😉 May 13, 2005 at 4:23 pm #582283 Matt 77 Posts Fassnor… n’est pas mort!

I can if needed but I was hoping someone else would. 🙂 May 13, 2005 at 4:34 pm #582285 SmokinFatBob 76 Posts Being a freeze-dried food kind of guy, this talk about grills and stuff is making me hungry. What should I bring? I’d be glad to contribute to the evening’s feast. 🙂 May 13, 2005 at 4:47 pm #582286 Dutch MArC_OS 22 Posts I will bring a small portable BBQ grill.
