Here in Tahoe we have received lots of new snow in March (12 out of 13 days so far). The big burly steep lines are only being done at the resorts due to the "High" avy warnings. So we've been settling for lots of sweet pow runs:

The early morning shuffle:

BCR tailgating:

And BCR broke some trail, followed by a big posse:

Baby, Now we're going down.
Brandon and BCR were the splitters:

Chuck from the City:

I was hoping to make a few turns with AT Anonymous, but a S-tele-man showed up instead (I wasn't disapointed):

Image

BCR charges:

And proceeds to get white washed:

Brandon:

Another great pow day with the crew.

Had a great day out there guys! Steeleman sure picked a sweet weekend to randomly put on the family calendar. :)

Here are my pics.

With all the recent low snow we've received the lover's leap area is finally game on. :) The LL trifecta starts with a run off the top near the edge of the world. (pic by steeleman circa 2002)
Image

Then to east wall, then to hog's back. Short runs and low elevation but pretty aesthetic and can have great snow if you time it right.
Image

It was early so I stopped at strawberry lodge for a quick snack and to take a closer look.
Image

I checked out Snowshoe Thompson's vintage splitboard too while at the lodge. Legend has it that he tele'd but we all know the truth. ;)
Image

I got a second wind and the clouds started lifting so I called the mrs and got clearance to hit the hog's back before continuing home. This is an area that I have been hitting for years and it looked to be in great condition. I was pumped.

The crux of this tour (when coming from hwy50, not the campground) is crossing the creek. Usually there is a great log to cross but the homeowners or high water levels seemed to have taken it out. I hunted up the creek for a mile or so before finally giving up. What a bummer. It starting to really dump again so maybe it was for the better.

Lots of this type of stuff along the creek looking for a crossing.

Here is the old log. (pic by steeleman circa 2002)

Damn, your camera is way better than mine. 2nd lap looked deep. Nice segment on the Hogsback effort too. Can you believe it's a helluva a lot deeper now than Saturday!?! It's official, Miracle March is back after 15 years in hiding.

Nice pics guys. I'll see what I can pull off my camera too. I've been on the road for a few days.

I was out yesterday, I don't know if I've ever seen more lighter snow in the Sierra. We started at 6500 feet and there was over 5 feet of fresh in places. More higher. My camera broke so no pictures :cry: :cry:
