Cool pic of hall of the gods! driving up 88 yesterday I was wondering where all the snow went. It's looking bony and i have the core shot to prove it. Got it yesterday at Kirkwood after taking the funky little rope tow up covered wagon and then out onto fawn ridge. kinda cool,kinda weird. the rope tow to the top of lookout vista was sitting at least 8 feet off the ground. Basically, what I am trying to say is wherethe..eff is mfing el nino? Sorry this is a resort post but hey, wtf. someone do a snow dance please.

MODELS HAVE BEEN CONSISTENT WITH THIS SCENARIO AND IN BRINGING MORE
ENERGETIC SYSTEMS INTO THE WEST COAST FOR THE WEEK AFTER MLK DAY.
THE FOCUS FOR THESE NEXT SYSTEMS MAY TREND MORE TOWARD THE
SOUTHERN SIERRA FOR THE BEST SNOWFALL AMOUNTS BUT THIS WILL DEPEND
UPON THE ULTIMATE LOCATION OF THE JET CORE. AT THIS TIME A GOOD
MOISTURE FEED AND DYNAMICS WITH THE JET TRANSVERSING THE PACIFIC
POINT TOWARD THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME PERIODS OF SIGNIFICANT SNOWFALL
IN THE SIERRA AS WE MOVE INTO THE LATTER HALF OF JANUARY.

Plzplzplzplzplz. Tahoe always gets it's snow, but the south can be a fickle bitch.

These storms are looking so $$$. :D Image

So I guess these will just have to serve as stoke and maybe a gentle reminder that conditions could be pretty damn good tomorrow. From thursday on the Mammoth crest:

Nice pics SF. Looks like good times down there.

NFing slopes in the Tahoe area are still super nice. We didn't observe any snow moving other than to be expected sluffs on steeps.

Just a reminder to support your friendly local Avalanche Center.

If anyone is looking to take an AIARE L2 in Tahoe next week, there are a couple of spaces...it's WLD128C 1 and 2.

Did a short pre-playoff skin up to Silver Peak, and found some really nice snow — a mix of pow and fast, wind-affected soft snow. The Pole Creek pullout looked like Squaw's parking lot — cars stacked out to the street. I have no idea where all those people were, because I only saw two tele skiers and one other duo out on Silver. My tracks on the right. Now I gotta go get some extra gas for my snowblower.....

Passed by there on Saturday as well and wondered what the hell was up with that!?!

Also saw that Seth Lightcap wrote an article on winter camping in one of the Tahoe weeklys or whatever...

I can only speak for Tahoe where the answer is yes. Pretty much constantly since Sunday night.
5+ feet on the crest around 2-3 at the Lake.

The snow line for the last foot of snow was ~500ft in the central Sierra above my house. The several feet of new snow seems to be setting up perfect. More on the way, let's hope it stays cold.

Over 20k of vertical in 4 days. About as good as it gets in Tahoe.
Although traffic today was horrendous on 89 south.
