    no, it’s NUKING. Over an inch an hour for the past couple of hours. Radar shows it being this way for a while longer.

    Hmmm… I wonder who “Guest” is this time. 🙄

    Nice pic, pajamas.

    Today was BC powder day #15 in a row for me, and it looks like more nukeage on the way. What a spring!

    That avy control might not be due to snow, but rain effecting the snow pack. When I came over mt rose hwy this morning it didn’t look like it had snowed much at all and it was lightly raining.

    Don’t burst my bubble, D! 😉

    Mt.Blows claims 8-10″ overnight.

    Anyway, a little rain is good for snowpack bonding, right? Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    Surprisingly good and deep snow in areas protected from the wind yesterday evening near Tamarack. The winds were really howling and swirling, and some slabbiness to watch out for on E and SE aspects. I triggered a small soft slab about a foot deep and was able to ride out of it to the side, but my dog took a ride swimming on top of it.

    Hey, I see new snow in the foothills. 😯 I’m guessing 4,000 feet. True???? Damn low for this time of year!!

    Looks like the passes won’t be able to open till July again.

    I had about an inch of slush overnight at my place. I got up to Rose this morning and was happily surprised by +6″ of standard sierra cement. Made for some really fun turns.

    Deep face-shot pow on north aspects. It won’t last so go git it!

    Anyone get out today? Looks like a temp inversion around Kirkwood. No melt freeze from what I can gather. Was hoping to get out tomorrow around Red Lake, but things look a little grim. Can others confirm?

    What a cool bump to read for the first time. Hell yeah, summer in February and I seriously get a little dizzy reliving last March.
    Currently there is still white to be seen up on the eastern slope. From where I work over in the foothills on the east side of sparks I can see whiteness in the higher elevation from where 80 goes thru the groove at verdi and south. Mt rose proper is really white. The ski resort don’t look too white. My guess is about 8000ft snowlevel. Appears to be more decent at 9000.
    That is all.

    Wow, what a difference a day makes. Snow is falling. At first light I can see that we are getting shielded here in town but Rose is getting hit good. 80mph gusts and a 200 acre fire over by caughlin ranch is rounding out an interesting morning.

    Edit 12nov06: I did a recon up to rose this morning. there is about 3 inches of new super dry snow at 9000. Did not attempt any turns.

    No one wants to tell you Eco. 😉

    I do like this though.

    See that P420.
