Short Version: As of 1-8 the tahoe bc was a mixed bag of snow. We found wind slabby sections up high, pockets of sheltered powder down low, ice, wind jacked snow, corn snow, and porn snow. Stability was good and rated as low on most aspects and moderate on N/NE slopes due to pockets of wind slab. The weather was sunny and it was a great day to be in the mountains.
Long Version: After seeing gimpy on the snow a few times this year but not actually skiing with him we finally hooked up for some fun in the sun. We hoped to find some powder snow in the protected N aspects at the mid elevation and ended up finding a number of other types of snow as well.
