Thanks Scruffy.

Black Mountain in the front. Conness area way in the back (looking good).

South Peak in the front with Gilcrest Peak and Mount Scowden behind it

It definitely looks more like mid May, huh?

Lundy kept us out of the wind last night. :D

We were hoping to ride SE Dunderberg this morning (road is open), but it was windy and getting much worse at 8am so we left. Just too windy and knew it wasn't going to soften up.

I can post more coverage pics of VL area for you guys. Still continuous on SE Dunderberg and the south chute still goes. North side looked bad up top but probably good coverage below for sleds. South, Black and Red didn't look that good with textured winter-like looking snow, pepper and patches.

Like scruffy said, low coverage all around.

Kind of the story of the weekend. WINDY!!

Only rode Friday and Saturday as the winds just wreaked havoc. Went up towards Warren on Friday and a nice tour out of Rock Creek above Ruby Lake on Saturday.

Scoped out the road to South Lake and Sabrina, McGee Creek, and dirt road below Tioga Pass. The deeper protected areas that don't get so wind swept appear to hold better snow.

Great beta pics Matt!

Wish I could join you guys on Sat but I'll be in the city for the wife's b-day.

Might try to get down on Thurs or Fri. Will you be down there PJ?

Not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but it looks like snow from Tahoe Northward tonight, first significant dump in over a month. Lassen, anyone? I'm thinking Thurs., but flexible.

Matt's pics are teh bestar!


Unless somebody can convince me that Lassen got dumped on I'm staying with my original 'Ginny Lakes plan... and maybe a hit of Lundy on Sund'y for a fix.

Around here it was only a few inches to a dusting of snow from that disapointer storm.

Internet rumors of 120 opening to the park on the weekend.

Road is also open to Devestated at LVNP. Probably better pack up there but I think there will be great turns at Ginny too.

Have fun. I'm tired of driving.

SSSHHHH! :)

(There are other rumors of a certain gas station with amazing food colloquially referred to as the "Mo-mart" opening as well... :))
