About a foot of snow in the trees, but there were some deeper areas of accumulation. Visibility wasn't always great, but no naturals were observed.

Nice.

Looks like a good plastering on eback.

I guess I need to pull my boards out and look at the calendar. :bananas:

We ripped inbounds at Rose Sun-Tues. On the runs it was full speed no worries. Off-piste coverage was ok but it was sketchy to open it up in all but a few blown in areas.
It snowed at least another foot Monday night making Nov 4th feel like a gift from god - new pow, new prez!

Image

It was sunny but cold today so I bet it's still pretty good up at Rose. Boreal starts spinning tomorrow too.
And for the shoulder season shreds...it snowed 2-4" at lake level so all the trails are caked. Sun should make a few things epic by the weekend.

How does this go again?

[antijinx] Looks like December is a wash.. Maybe get some real snow for Christmas, as I'm sure next week's forecast will disintegrate like everything else has so far this year... [/antijinx]

Honestly though, looks like things are changing this weekend. Let's just hope the low stays centered a little off shore, keep temps a hair warmer with more moisture for the hills... Kinda need to make sure the old crust and new snow place nice together.. Don't want a crappy, dry, cold interface between old and new...

Hoping for the best...

- G

Spent some time today poking around Carson Pass (left the camera on the kitchen counter though). Observations totally inline with what SAC described. By 2pm, around 6 inches on blower new snow. In many areas that 6 inches was sitting on dirt, but where it was over snow we observed some small slabs sliding on the old/new interface. In more wind affected areas those slabs could be bigger. It had been snowing lightly all day, but the expected big storm had yet to hit.

Under the old crust there are some impressive (for Tahoe) facets. Some striations are visible with the naked eye. If you are any sort of avi geek, take the time to dig to the ground, there's a lot of sugar down there.
