.......and it looks like snow is in the forecast as long as the freezing level stays low.
Anyway, just wanted to get some local input on what's good right now and with weather coming in. We're staying close to Squaw so Squaw and Alpine Meadows are in play. Also have a free pass to Sierra a bit further south if it is worth the extra drive. Recommendations?
If it snowing, you won't be able to get to Sierra. They'll shut down the road, unless you drive around the top of the lake and all the way around. Major league out-of-the-way.
They're going to need a lot of snow, and this storm may do it. In Tahoe, when it snows, it snows like a mofo. You won't be going anywhere, so if you're near Alpine and Squaw you'll have plenty to do. Don't overlook Homewood, which is close to Alpine and Squaw. It has lower elevations, right on the lake, but close to the same vertical. Incredible views, sparse crowds, and only two green trails...lots of nice glades, no crowds, cheap lift tickets...everything Alpine and Squaw are not, but still great riding.
