The cold temps finally came to the Sierra and mixed with lingering precip to create some great powder conditions. Holy Nukage was it deep today!

With the steep and wide-open slopes off limits due to the inconsistent snow levels and high winds it was back to powderhouse for some classic Tahoe tree runs.

I pulled into the trailhead at a reasonable 8am to see these guys (gimpy, joesnow, & buddy) approaching the road after yet another dawn patrol session. Studs.

Image

After a quick hello they reported the conditions to be the best of the year. Stoked! They had some lift skiing on the menu as well and took off with huge friggin' grins.

While getting ready Sherpa 1 showed up thinking the same thing I was…POW. :mrgreen:

We hit the skintrack and once again where stoked to find the DPers broke an excellent trail. Thanks yo!

Pretty soon it was time to drop.

At the bottom we just had to go back for more. :)
The skintrack had a few fresh inches on it and it was really nuking at this point. We estimated at least of foot of fresh fell in four hours or so. It was the light, sierra pow that we all know and love, so good. You had to be careful not to choke on the shit. At one point on the uptrack I got lost in the moment, it was so still and quiet…all I could hear was the snow hitting my shell. It was rad.

Today's conditions reminded me of a trip I took to Revelstoke BC back in the day. We had heaps of snow while we where there and did a lot tree runs like this due to high avy conditions. Good memories.

Back in Meyers I was greeted with stand-still traffic headed westbound. Luckily after 10 mins we started rolling again.

Heading up Echo Summit behind the holiday crowd.

My kids have been asking me to bring home some snow for a snowball fight so I hooked ‘em up and we had a good one. :)

Another great day in the mountains…if I can only make it to the weekend for more. :)
