The Cali All Ride Tour (Includes 2 BC tours as well)

So spring break just ended for me, and my friend Erik and I had one of our most awesome trips yet. We decided to hit up all the good spots in California one time: North Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe and the Mammoth/Bishop area.

We started by staying at Erik's cabin in North Lake

Driving over Donner Pass:



So we crashed Saturday night and decided to head out to Kirkwood (in the South Lake Area) on Sunday.

Driving over Luther Pass you can see Red Lake Peak and Stevens Peak. Two future tours for the next season, we didn't make it out there this year



My friend Erik looking classy on the lift:



Me looking even classier



There was this crazy lookin rainbow halo around the sun: (Backside of Kirkwood)



My friend Erik skis so we switched gear and I tried some skiing and it was soooo much fun!!



We decided to drive back on 89 because we drove down on the eastside of Tahoe. I believe this is Tallac??



Beautiful Emerald Bay

So after we took a break we met up with some more of my friends and built a jump out on Mt Rose Highway to get a sweet sunset picture with Lake tahoe below. This was the result:



DAY 2

The next day we woke up for our very first real BC tour! Drove back up Mt Rose Highway to hit up what I believe is called Tamarack Peak.



Me just chillin enjoying the view on the skinup:



This was the view into Reno if you turned 180 degrees



Relay Peak in the background, which will be another future tour



Made it to the top, crappy drop in off the cornice.....



Ripped below it though!



Erik riding and you can see our tracks on the far left in the background



We made it down to the Mt Rose Highway and hitchiked back to the top



You can see the peak we rode

DAY 3

It was now time to drive to the Mammoth Area, after hitting up Northlake and Southlake tahoe!
Driving down the Eastside of tahoe to get to highway 50



Highway 395, probably my favorite drive ever



Mt Job, you tour off of Luther Pass (on the other side of the peak) into Nevada (the side of the peak you can see). Another for next spring.



Topaz Lake in Nevada going back into California



Driving through Bridgeport and the EPIC Eastern Sierras



Mono Lake and Tioga Pass



Mt Tom finally coming into Bishop CA where our house we were staying at was



The fuel pump of Erik's Car broke in the driveway of the house we were staying at, just as we were about to get mexican food
We called it a night after spending some time trying to fix it.

Day 4

So now with a broken car, instead of riding Mammoth Mountain we spent the whole day fixing it.

We had to take the fuel pump out of the tank



and after getting 90% of the job done, we took it to a shop.

Day 5

Thank god we finally got a ride up to Mt. McGee so we could get some riding in.



Skinning Up







Finally get to rip down. The snow had a somewhat nasty crust but we still ripped it anyway.



We had only 3 hours while the person giving us a ride went on a run so we did not make it up to the top



Eriks car was fixed and we finally got some goddamn mexican food

Driving at sunset to go to some hotsprings





The hotsprings




After that we packed up the next day around 8pm and drove from Bishop CA all the way back to Santa Cruz (a solid 8 hour drive)

The trip overall was around 1000 miles of driving but was 100% worth it!

haha same!
Looks like you guys had mad fun especially replacing the internal fuel pump LOL, those things suck. Last time I had to do mine I actually had to remove the entire diff to get the tank out!

Ugh, that fuel pump looked like a real pita. Great trip, I love the Eastern Sierras. Probably my most favorite place to hang when I am in California. Good to see you are putting that splitty to use.
