Pretty much the plan now. I have been following that opensnow pretty much every day now, and it would be nice for 3 feet to drop. Fine with me that it's this week, get all the locals out there before I get there. Now I am really just hoping there is at least sunshine.

farnsworth You might actually score. Still a lot of winter left. Check it out:

The Tahoe Daily Snow | OpenSnow

You can all blame me for the drought in Cali. I bought a powder board this summer. Fkn thing laughs at me every day.

Which is why I said you're right for sure. I just have a lot of regional pride and my point was that we've had great snow even with our lack of vert and we have some nice hills up there that are a lot of fun. Also my original comment in this thread was more to express my surprise at the conditions out there than it was to actually suggest to Karp to stay home. If I were him I wouldn't cancel my trip either.

BTW I am super jealous of what you guys get to ride on a regular basis. Still I love it here and make the most of it. Which basically means never going to Brighton lol.

That guy is right. It's still an awesome place. Sucks you won't be able to ride much, but it's still one of the most beautiful place in the U.S. Really. Snowboard next year. Tahoe never sucks.

We have 60+ inch bases up there and I've hit 3 powder days even being limited to riding weekends.

KIRKRIDER Tahoe is dry. There is a bit of man-made snow, but few runs open, that means you are sharing those 12 inches of ice pebbles with everybody else. (kids and all). Plus it's warm... 70 here in the bay, that means that by 12 you are riding man-made - slush.

I'm not driving up there until we get feet of snow.. Bt I have the feeling this season is busted. Since today we are officially in a drought.

No shit. Our first trip to Tahoe had lots of bare dirt...but it was still better than most of the Ice Coast. Go, enjoy. It will just make you want to go back next year. Just book later. February and March are much more sure-fire.
