Skied waterhouse today. The last storm was a nice present from santa :D

Coverage is pretty good everywhere. Sunday's storm seemed to add about a foot down low and maybe a 1-2ft up high. At all elevations, the soft stuff is sitting on top of the frozen sheet from the previous rain. Ya feel yer self bottomin' out from time to time, but that probably won't be a worry after Tue/Wed storm :wink:


Coverage at the base:

BCrider,

We were on powderhouse, skied the line just rider's left of the bowl.
We might be heading up next monday if you're interrested. Actually that goes for any Sac/SF folks out there too.

I'm gonna be heading up at least once/week from now on, weather and girlfriend permitting, gotta get back in shape :)

Good going guys, I think we just missed you yesterday. Tobiasca and I set skin track yesterday at about 7:00 a.m and got the tracks, so good we doubled it. Went up this morning starting at 5:30 a.m. and hit it again before work.

Jim
