Depends on weather. What'd ya have in mind? I'm heading south Saturday, prolly Lundy or Tioga, but I might come back to Reno that night, but maybe not. Wanna meet me down there for Lundy, Ginny, Sawtooths, or whatever?

BTW Monitor Pass is now open.

I haven't been out in two weeks so at this point I'm more concerned about staying in shape than getting good conditions. I was thinking about trying three laps on Tallac. I've done two before but not three. Should be a good way to get my legs back under me.

I'm totally open though…

I don't think I'll want to drive down to Lundy considering the conditions. Will most likely stay in tahoe.

Mountainvoodoo,
Where are the woodfords?

Woodsfords Canyon is on the right side of the road as you go down hwy 88 from Pickets Junction towards Markleeville. There are two visible chutes as you drive but cloudburst Canyon is a wide gulley thas snakes its way to the top around the corner from the chutes. I checked it out last week and the snow line starts about 200 vertical above the hwy. It would be a vert or bootpack kind of climb, not much skinning as it is steep. I've been looking at the line for several years and was suprised to see it filled in. If the weather is a go tomorrow I may go get it.

Hey BC Rider, I've climbed tallac in the summer a couple of times. What's the route that you guys ride normally? Looks like there is some cool terrain up there and I wouldn't mind giving it a go next time I am down there. (my lady's parents have a place on fallen leaf)\
Thanks in advance for any info,
Nate

Place in Fallen Leaf? I bet you can find someone to show you. :wink:
