:drool: soo deeeeep at Echo yesterday. We made wrong choices for this somewhat sleeper storm. Camped in the snopark knowing that caltrans won't make plowing a priority. 2+ by morning. Whoops. A little more than expected. We head off to the pecker. So very deep. Too deep. Why didn't we go to the resort or Phouse. :banghead:

See groups coming out of Deso totally spent. That afternoon we all rally the Sheriff, Caltrans and DOT to get the lot plowed that night. Sheriff was totally cool and coordinated all involved to plow the lot so the campers don't have to spend the night in cars. Just in time for the stopped traffic (2 times) down 50.

Arrgh. But the one lap was pretty freakin' blower. :thumpsup:

Any other adventures?

Yowza, you were in that too? 50 was a nightmare last night, 4 hours from south lake to Twin Bridges with a whiny dog up front in the truck cab with us. Still worth it though, it was an awesome day of riding!

Nice conditions for sure. It's warming up quickly though.

PJ, if you get a chance, send an email to Norma Santiago (El Dorado County Supervisor for Tahoe) at bosfive@co.el-dorado.ca.us telling her about your experience and those of the folks who came in from Deso. Same thing happened to me and Wavy and friends last year, except our vehicles were stuck for 3 days up there...lame.

Monday morning, there was only a thin strip plowed through the SnoPark.

Snow came in a little bigger than predicted, at least on the West Shore. I would say over 6 inches above 7000ft. The super light snow was a little dust on crust like and sluffed off the crust a bit, but should ride better with some settlement. Conditions are very thin at near lake level, but decent to good up higher.

Beautiful conditions up there.

Found heavy pow on top of Saturday's slush off Tamarack Peak. No complaints here about pow turns in May :D

Saturday May 2 on Waterhouse

Image

In the morning it was snowing from the car at 7700 all the way up and the top 800 ft or so were pretty good considering it is May. On the way out from about 8200 down to the car it was raining which was compounded with all the fresh snow melting off the trees.

Pretty big wet slide on South Bowl of Tallac, visible from Meyers (which is where I saw it from). I think it went today, prolly just a couple nights of weak to no freeze. Nothing shocking, but not something to ignore either.

Anybody know if the snow bridge at the hairpin at Blue Canyon near Sonora Pass is still intact?

In case anyone cares, snow bridge is still intact and lookin like it has another week or so. Plenty of snow back in there but definitely getting sun affected and runnels.

Sonora Pass- Many turns were made, hiking was easy, and the snow was pretty good

Laurel Canyon and Red Slate- Many miles were hiked with snowboards on the packs to snowline, and just when we thought we were actually going to finally climb and ride this thing, rain started pouring from the sky. We tried to wait it out, but it never let up and it ended up raining during the entire hike out.
