I hit up Powderhouse and Waterhouse yesterday too. Though not quite as early as you all (8:30 start). Both were super fun partly due to the lack of deep snow and the abundance of fun bumps usually buried this time of year.
We had a funny crew of three spitboarders, one tele'r, and my friend's bro from out of town. He wore hiking boots and snowshoes while carrying skis and vintage rear entry ski boots on his back. Looked a little funny but he hung in there all day. I was impressed.
Glad to get some yesterday because the rain is pouring down right now in Meyers.

have a beer and relaxer at the end of the day, then try to get on the road
Didn't we do that? And we still had a hell of a time getting out. Oh well. I still had a good day. Definetly got a few pow shots in. A little hiking goes a long way at K-wood.
Nice pict and air.
So, think this is a typo (copied from NWS Sac. webstie)?
