Driving Down from Truckee I was thinking about what lies ahead. Nice day skinning up a familiar face with some old friends. I like the Tahoe area. mostly for views like this

Image

I didnt feel like anything Big or Steep, just wanted some meadow skipping in the sun

So, off we go. Up Tallac

The usual's

Image

Image

Dave Topping out

Image

LuLu

Image

LuLu's Boss

Image

And....Puffnat and Powderjunkie even showed up

The Crew was assembled

Image

Like I said before, I was just up for some light meadow skipping

So, I wasnt too concerned about conditions down the cross, I didnt plan to drop it anyway
But, JimW was making me a bit nervous .....he always stands really close to cliffs. See him in the background?

Image

The conditions didnt look bad. I was told you have to make a hard right down before those trees or you will cliff out. i thought "So? Im not dropping here"

Then this guy tells me I am

Image

* If you dont feel like dropping big lines dont hang with the big boys *

Oh well, here we go

It wasnt too bad. Only one tomahawk , stupid sluff.

So..here we Go

PJ droppin in, looks like he's surfing big sunset cliffs

Image

Image

Image

Then it was JimW,s turn at bat

Image

Jim on the lower but much more rippable section

Image

Image

Powderjunkie


Image

Image

Image

We found a nice natural half pipe with a narrow exit. That was fun

Image

Image

It was another great day in the Sierra with some old, great friends

* And a big thanks to Dave and Buffy for driving me back to get my poles :banghead:

Looks like a sweet day. Thanks for sharing. I bet the views with mountains and the lake never get old. Really pretty place.

I've always wanted to ride Tallac and get the Tahoe experience. Just looks like fun. Thanks for sharing your outing with a good group, Tex!

Those skinning pics with the lake out behind are really spectacular. :thumpsup: One day I've got to get to that area in the winter.

Also really dig those back lit powder shots.

"TOMAHAWK TEX" where's the video? Nice seeing the crew. Every time I see you (and the rest of the splitters) I realize how much I love hanging out in the bc w/you guys. We need to go out together more often.
Here are a few of ours. Mine were taken w/iphone so they aren't the best quality
Here comes the sleepy slow poke ;)

So beautiful up there, I need to spend more time in Tahoe.

Good to see some of the OG's getting together and shredding in style. :band:

Maybe we can rename this thread "JimW on the edge" :lol:

Image

Wish I woulda seen y'all out there, I think I was riding right up the road. Tallac is looking sweet, didn't have that much snow up high all of last year.

Why does everyone except for me have pictures of me standing on the edges of cliffs? :scratch:

Anyway... yeah, great day with the OG crew. The only things missing were the dude on the left (SanFrantastico), and the jacket on the right :disco:

Image

Will post up my pics tomorrow.
