Escape from Oakland! 0 to 20" on the ground in Tahoe with no snow in sight!
I'm going to be in Jackson for riding from 12/26 through 12/30. No car on the 25th/26th/27th, friends arrive the night of the 27th and then we'll have a car. I've got a Mountain Collective Pass, so at worst I'll be resorting it, but if conditions are manageable I'd be interested in skinning a couple of the days, if anyone is around and wants to show a California boy around. (Also, if anyone has a spare couch on the 25th and 26th, I can throw you some cash, bring some CA wine, do a photo shoot for you, but I won't give you a foot massage)
We get into SLC the night of the 30th, and are there on New Years Eve and New Year's day. Same deal there - will be at the Bird if it's touchy, but would love to skin if things are manageable.
Depending on which day of the trip it is, I'd be with 0, 1, or 2 Austrian skiers ... they're pretty solid on the way up and down.
We'd be most grateful if anyone wants to show us a local trailhead - we don't need to know your secret stash, just need to find some solid lines that aren't super touchy. Anything beats California rock-and-dirt shredding, or east coast 5-turn shrubbery elbowing at this point
(There is some small chance that I don't go straight through Jackson, and stay in SLC on Xmas day through the 27th ... but most likely I'm going straight to Jackson.)
