No, we got there right after all the cars piled up and formed the wall of cars. So we were in the beginning of the queue and we U-turned our way out of there.

I got trapped in that massive pile up too. If I drove 2-3minutes faster, I would have been in that wall of cars. Very fortunate here.

Just got these, and holy crap, these lenses and goggles as a whole are just awesome.

Quick question though:

My point exactly. But even still, if you go to a mountain, and you have to figure out which spots to avoid, then why pay all that money when you can't enjoy the entire mountain?

Don't go to Heavenly, it's one of the most horribly laid out mountains. They split the mountain into two halves: California side and Nevada side. These are basically two sides of the mountains that...

How do you start beginners then?

Haha, or are you one of those people that just send them off on their suffering and tell them to don't hit trees. Trees win everytime.

Yeah, toe-side to me felt extremely unnatural. The idea of going down the mountain facing the other way, while turning my next so I can look forward kind of disoriented me. But after about 6-8 days...

Teach them toe-side first. So they'll never be stuck by the "ease/comfort" of heel-side. Once get toe-side, they'll get heel-side in like 10minutes.

No clue, any Lake Tahoe locals want to chime in? I'm particularly interested in the 80 and 50 highways.

Dumb question... but I'll ask anyways.

Do you guys rinse the underbody of your car after each trip to prevent rusting? (Because of all the salt on the road?)

Or am I just being paranoid?

I went to North Star over the Christmas weekend. To give you an idea of how much snow Lake Tahoe has gotten... I went into the trees, punched the ground, and my fist disappeared.

Yeah, there's no way my car will make it through an overnight event. Tires can go through some snow, but not my front bumper.

I agree with that. I'm just curious as to what are the advantages of having chains on top of snow tires already? As in, what more are the chains providing that my snow tires aren't already?

In California, Cal-Trans require both 4WD with snow tires. Otherwise, everything else need to have chains.

Can someone tell me why if you already have snow tires on the car (FWD), what added...

Just hope that it won't be super windy. This last storm on Sunday had 40+mph winds. Even if the resort didn't close the mountain, people coming down said that the chair lift up was the scariest thing...

May or may not be useful. But I would keep an eye on the potential storm on Sunday. If the storm does hit, call up the resort and see if there's any possibility of the lifts shutting down. If they do...

Can't do Monday :(

Probably can't do Kirkwood on Sunday either. I don't mess with the 89 and 50 when it gets bad.

We're thinking of just going to North Star.

I'm still tracking the storm on Sunday and man, it just looks like a travel nightmare day.

I think the morning looks ok (it'll just be cold rain), but I'm wary of the accumulated snow on the road...
