Tahoe Storm 2017

I'll just attach some pics here.

Kirkwood is closed for the day, they are buried under 9'. Both 88 and 89 are closed with no ETO. Friday should be epic.

Looks like a rare case if too much snow...?

There is such a think as too much snow. We had that in '99, known as the "avalanche-winter" when in short time 16 feet snow fell; >50 (!) ppl died in three (!) devastating big avalanches in the Alps; 1200 damage causing avalanches went down alone in Switzerland. Entire towns n valleys were cut off for days.

Really hope it won't turn out that way in your region! Be safe!

I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little

me too! The pics are from last Saturday. Half the mountains was unridable due to slide debris. Ski patrol did an amazing work. But that wasn't even half the snow it did now in 2 days

Hey Kirkrider - wondering if you expect 88 and, specifically, 89 open on Saturday? I know nothing is certain so thought I'd ask what you'd bet on.

I really hope so! They are there to make money they can't wait to open, that said I know that they have A LOT of work to do. If tomorrow snows more (likely) Friday very little will be open, Saturday a little more and probably Sunday for the backside that at that point will be well firm Sierra Cement.

As for the roads...same thing. The didn't open in 2 days now, the amount of snow on the Spur must be immense. But I'm sure they are all working hard. 89 usually opens first. I think they will open both by Saturday. Friday it's not supposed to snow, I am hoping they clear both by Friday morning.

And next week we have another storm coming!! I'll be riding until July.

Love to have this kind pf problems ;-)
