Snowforecast is saying that the snow levels are dropping on Sunday. Hoping for some lighter snow on top of all that wet stuff from Saturday.

Is there any lodging close to Kirkwood? The only stuff I could find was closer to Heavenly.

Are you allowed to park and sleep in the parking lot at Kirkwood?

Yes, there is lodging at the resort and a couple of crummy motels nearby.

No. If it's still snowing, it's a bad idea anyway. See:

checks weather report

"Sorry, I am not available monday and tuesday."

sigh. It better fucking snow, if it doesnt and I miss a chance to make some $ I'll be pissed...But I know if I stay home and take the job it will snow for certain! And the work is only 50/50 chance anyway. Why do I have a feeling that the chance of it snowing and my office having work for me are one and the same. fml.


mammoth forecast is looking to be lot of rain, the summit is 11k so hopefully it will be all snow up top

My guess is: Sat is good...Sunday should be better after all the work they will do sat...but still windy up on top. That might mean 6 and 10 on hold. Monday is the day IF Sunday keeps snowing...But I'm working. Not counting on the backside...

Damn, sucks that you have to work. This will be my first time to Kirk/Tahoe and it looks like I won't be disappointed.

If anyone is going to be up Monday and wants to ride, let me know. I'm gonna be solo and don't know the mountain. Looking for good trees and POW!

There's 40% chance of snow Sunday...the least of the 3 days. Weather looks good, but if you don't get more sunday night...no freshies! Unless they open the Bside,..

Good Luck!! I can suggest some really good trails if you like.

Top of 6 go skiers left to find steep chutes and gullies. Longer traverse to Sentinel and Palisades bowl, keep back on SRight riding and reconnect with 6

You can go right and under the lift too.. traverse all the way to steep cliffy terrain or bomb the steeps reconnecting with 5 and 11

Under Sentinel Bowl there's Cave rock...nice spot with some mini-cliffs


Top of 10 (wall) Go skiers right along the steepest line ( love that) drop in Eagle bowl if it's open or ride the edge of it and end under Norm's Nose either go back down or keep traversing...all good there.

Backside:
Go all the way up to Fawn's ridge (if the ropes are open..or if you hike) keep on the boundary and enjoy rolling hills all the way down back to 4

Drop the Wave...or keep to the left on " Happiness is" one of the best runs out there.

BSide Sleft...similar to 6...lots of steep tight chutes, but a lot of traversing...

End of the day....
start bombing the groomed runs.... Really nice natural half pipe near 11 and one tighter near 7




And more....
