  • Tahoe Conditions for Thirteen-14 Season

    i'm sure that some folks have already made some turns, but the latest forecast is getting me pretty stoked to get out and glide...likely on the skinny skis with my wife and 11 week old on the maiden snow voyage for the chariot, but stoked nonetheless.

        My son graduated from the Chariot a couple of years ago and is now making his own turns...fun and exciting to see! Sleeping much?

          I heard snow levels down to 500 ft. It should be real good. Great to see the west getting it finally.
          Lift served and proud of it.

            Hopefully, this storm pans out and lays down some sort of base. One thing I have learned over the years living here is that not to count your feet and inches until it is on the ground. WTBS, fingers and toes are crossed and our gear is in order, Sunday looks like a great day if everything falls into place.
            Our plan is ski local low angle on Sunday, like TM or Chick a dee and see what the base is like skiing twenty to one ratio snow on no base. Then plan accordingly for the following days. We have the "resort" option too but I would guess that on Sunday it will be a "sh*t show" with only one trail open and a starved crowd. Anyway, a light at the end of the tunnel.

              Tiny crystals just started falling in south shore. Our neighbor's house looks like the Griswold's. We went and sang a few verses but he didn't come out.

                      10-14 inches at south shore, light, small crystals with significant water content, too. I'd say 1:10

                          Oh man felt so good to watch it snow last night. I was like a kid looking at the street lamp every ten minutes.
                          Got in an xc tour this morning already, was a lot of work breaking trail. There might be 16 on the ground now as bursts of heavier snow keep pushing through.

                          Really happy just to have something to slide around on.
