    Looking at the forecast, the next series of small storms is forecasted to only dust Tahoe but is calling for more accumulation at *assen.

    Who know what will really happen, but if this plays out like forecasted, we’re heading up there. Maybe car camp?

    Any takers?

    Bummer, can’t make it this time. Definitely want to hit up Lassen next time though.

    I’m likely going to Wawona with the fam but will get a short tour one morning. They’re saying the snow level will be pretty low. Can you say riding through Giant Sequoias?

    Have a blast!

    about 3.5 hours dfinn.

    If you Mapquest it they tell you to go 89 all the way, but when you map quest to Chester, they say go to Reno, then up 395 to Susanville. Then west on 36. It’s proabably a lot easier to go 395 esp. in snowy conditions.

    that’s a pretty solid drive. Where are you coming from?

    north bay. its 4 hours for me.

    I know, it’s hard to justify when Rose is right out your door.

    Is Rose pretty wind hammered now?

    Could be worth it if there are freshies. 😀

    *assen sucks though, you probably don’t want to go. 8)

    I haven’t been out since sunday but I drive by it every day on my way into work and it doesn’t look very good. There may be some north facing aspects still holding onto good snow but I’m not sure how likely that is.

    Just thought I’d post this:

    I’d love to ride that this weekend, but that’s normally a spring run.

    We’d probably be riding this instead.

    is that really the section you would be riding? Maybe it’s just the perspective of that image but that looks to be a pretty short, flat run.

    yeah, like I said, *assen sucks. Bad snow, short runs and flat.

    it’s the only pic I could dig up.

    Well, this isn’t too far from the first pic.

    I’d trust PJ. Except I don’t live in Tahoe.

    I might be up for Sunday.

    Rose is not wind-hammered. Reports from today are that the snow is holding up well.

    good to know about Rose KS.

    Sugarbowl got 2-4
    Shasta got 2

    NWS forecasts about a foot through Saturday on Shasta.

    We’ll see how it plays out.

    Trinity Alps looks to get hammered. PJ, maybe you should call your close personal friend Paul R.

    Trinities always get pounded. It’s difficult and long access and a long drive though. Puff Nattie is on board.

    Your post about the Trinity’s getting pounded has me amped to hit Carter Meadows Summit. Probably a long drive for many but basically its road access to a summit ridge so you can either do road runs or skin the ridge into some really sweet lines that bottom out in a basin which is where the road is. Most of the road runs are avy safe while some of the bigger lines are sketchier. The road goes from Callahan to Cecilville.

    Food for thought 😛
