Insane. I drove into Tahoe via 50 on Saturday the 12th and left this past Saturday. Couldn't believe what a difference it was and they're still getting dumped on with more on the way.

Hopefully, for you, it'll actually settle down a bit tomorrow so Ski Patrol can blow-out some of the steeps. Its hard to say, though, with the forecast to be non-stop through Saturday night. They'll get the frontside moving a bit tomorrow and Saturday, but I don't see 4 Opening until maybe Sunday, probably next week!

yep...I'm in doubt about heading out there tomorrow...The drive will suck, unless the Spur is open, which I doubt, and at best I'll get 5-10 and maybe 6 on the front side. The back side must be a white-hole.. Non stop rainstorm here in the bay area...and Kirk is disappearing on the web cam...
