Forums Splitboard Talk Forum East side trip in May Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) Author Posts April 22, 2005 at 10:13 pm #566677 loligo 2 Posts I have some friends from Colorado coming to visit the last week of May and I want to take them on an epic east side trip. For years I’ve been telling them that the Seirras are every bit as good as the Rockies, if not better. Now its time to put up or shut up. I’m looking for some trip suggestions. We looking to do 5 or 6 really good day trips starting and ending at our truck. My bros can’t be too far away from the ice chest. In reality, an overnight tour would be fine, I just want to make sure we get tons of turns. By the way, anyone is welcome to join us. Noknees, powderjunkie and the other folks I met at splitfest, it would be great if you could make it. April 22, 2005 at 10:24 pm #581817 jimw 1421 Posts Geez, there are so many options. Tioga pass is great. There are so many stops up and down Hwy 395 where you can do epic day trips. I think usually some of them would be getting manky by then but this year most should be holding good snow for a while. You might want to pick up a copy of Moynier’s and Ritchens’ books.

Plenty of terrain to show your Rockies boys. Ice chests are nice, just not icy chests. Ride with your shirt on.

May 16, 2005 at 7:11 pm #581822 Matt 77 Posts The gate is not open on the east side of Tioga Pass. Plowing has reached Tioga Pass Resort, so they’re close, but no word on when the road will open from the east to the pass.
