This Zone has many names, on the map its "Nebelhorn" Some Oldtimer's call it "widows" People even call it "Sierra at tahoe side country" but thats a long bootpack past huckelberry :lol: Ive even heard respected BC shreders call it a legal snomo zone, (more of a grey area snomo zone) I too have been guilty of mobbin the sleds in this zone. :shock: Ive even heard of homeowners in the area trying to start a BC snocat operation 8) That would be cool.... Anyway this Zone is full of pillow madness and I truly enjoy exploring the area!

Pillow lines often hold hidden danger, so be on the lookout for any Cali Crevases

So jealous! I've been in AIARE Level 2 class all day today and worked all week.

Seriously everyone be safe out there. Check out the Sierraavalanchecenter.org site tomorrow. There was some crazy avy activity on Silver Peak in North Shore today or last night. There is still a really deep facet layer.
