Forums Split Partners Wanted *assen maybe 1/28 & 29 Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 41 total) 1 2 3 → Author Posts January 25, 2006 at 6:04 pm #567392 powderjunkie 1669 Posts 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? January 25, 2006 at 6:13 pm #585680 dfinn 138 Posts i might be up for that. how far of a drive is it from tahoe? January 25, 2006 at 6:20 pm #585681 Ecobrad 2068 Posts 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! January 25, 2006 at 7:06 pm #585682 powderjunkie 1669 Posts 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. January 25, 2006 at 7:24 pm #585683 dfinn 138 Posts that’s a pretty solid drive. Where are you coming from? January 25, 2006 at 7:40 pm #585684 powderjunkie 1669 Posts 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) January 25, 2006 at 7:45 pm #585685 dfinn 138 Posts 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. January 25, 2006 at 7:55 pm #585686 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Just thought I’d post this: January 25, 2006 at 11:24 pm #585687 powderjunkie 1669 Posts I’d love to ride that this weekend, but that’s normally a spring run. We’d probably be riding this instead. January 25, 2006 at 11:31 pm #585688 dfinn 138 Posts 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. January 25, 2006 at 11:39 pm #585689 powderjunkie 1669 Posts 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. January 25, 2006 at 11:54 pm #585690 Ecobrad 2068 Posts I’d trust PJ. Except I don’t live in Tahoe. January 26, 2006 at 12:52 am #585691 knucklesplitter 340 Posts I might be up for Sunday. Rose is not wind-hammered. Reports from today are that the snow is holding up well. January 26, 2006 at 5:31 pm #585692 powderjunkie 1669 Posts 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.

January 26, 2006 at 6:50 pm #585695 knucklesplitter 340 Posts Trinity Alps looks to get hammered. PJ, maybe you should call your close personal friend Paul R. January 26, 2006 at 7:10 pm #585696 powderjunkie 1669 Posts Trinities always get pounded. It’s difficult and long access and a long drive though. Puff Nattie is on board. January 27, 2006 at 1:46 am #585697 shasta 143 Posts 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 😛 Andy January 27, 2006 at 4:39 pm #585698 knucklesplitter 340 Posts So what’s yer plan, Chowdermonkie? I might be down for both days.
