real deep snow



on target

By ccrossen | February 17, 2016

winds and rain have started early this morning in Tahoe. We will see the main storm push in later this afternoon and evening. Warm to start but finishing cold. We should see up to 12″ around Lake level and up to 24″ up high along the Crest. Conditions will be very windy throughout and continue into the day tomorrow. Snow showers remain Thrs-Fri, then we look to go dry again… with fairly warm temps.

The waiting period has begun … looks like we’re still at  least a week or so out from any possible systems entering the Tahoe region. High pressure and high temps reign. Fortunately, the inverted temps are leaving, so we should be getting good hard freezes at night up high and warm sunny days to get us into a corn cycle. Yesterday was a mixed bag with pow, muck, and mashed potatoes, as we did not have cold temps up high the previous night, but that has changed and we should be progressing to more skiable temps and terrain.

Another storm cycle for Tahoe…. after the deluge Thrs and Friday, we had great snow for Sat Sunday, with up to 14 inches in places. Not as much as we had hoped for, but a great continuation and refresh. Temps stay cold for the beginning of the week, so enjoy the winter snow while we have it. Looks like we have a chance of snow showers early this week as well. Then a 7-10 dry spell with temps rising. Might have a bit of a corn cycle coming up.

what’s next

By ccrossen | January 25, 2016

our great run of skiing and conditions continued this past weekend, with 10-16 inches allotted Fri-Sunday. Great inbounds turns and backcountry above 7000′. Otherwise, we still had rain crust and not much snow below that level.

Models are continuing to show a potentially vigorous even for this Fri-Sun. Stay tuned as we could get hit hard if things align. 

Avy info: persistent weak layers are improving, but some areas of instability remain. Most recent snow from Saturday is moving in places as well.
