Default POW! 3 to 7 feet of it.

From our very own Californian weather god:
Tahoe Weather Discussion - No Hype Lake Tahoe Weather


This weekend I want to sink that Hovercraft fo' good

Not much change again this morning. Iíve seen some of the media saying massive rains and 11,000 ft. snow levels melting everything away. Iím not sure what they are looking at but the storms look much colder than that to me. Not as cold as we want but not 9000-11000 ft. snow levels.

Snow levels on some of the model runs stay down at 7000 ft. into Saturday with 1-3 feet of snow above that. We start today with a light snowfall event above 7000 ft. with snow possibly mixing down to lake level by this evening. 3-6 inches above 7000 ft. with a slushy coating down to 6500 ft.

The next storm moves in Thursday night into Friday with the trend being more Friday into Friday night. The trend has been colder with this system with snow levels around 7000 ft. We could see 1-3 feet above 7000 ft.

The biggest storm is later Saturday into Sunday. The models still donít agree on where the heaviest precip is aimed. This is the storm where the snow levels jump up to 8000 ft. and maybe briefly higher Saturday night, and then crash to lake level by Sunday afternoon. This storm drops 3-6 inches of liquid so it will be a lot of rain below 8000 ft. Saturday night. Above that 2-4 ft. of heavy snow are possible. We could see several inches down to 7000 ft. Sunday as snow levels fall and a few even down to lake level. Total snowfall above 8000 ft. of 3-7 feet possible.

Lucky bastards. I won't be able to get up to Tahoe until late December, so I'm hoping it stays cold and the storm lays down a nice base. Either way, enjoy all that snow.

Not to rub it in, but Hokkaido has been dumping already. Almost 4 feet of snow in Hirafu village in the last couple of weeks.
Lots more up on the mountains.

How is this for opening day last week?



More pictures here.

Getting ready to relocate to Hokkaido for the season in a couple of weeks time - might have to dig out the house by then.

Think I'm heading out that way in the next few days if this one check comes in to take advantage of everything.

Haha, come visit us. The powder is like nothing else - but you might find the terrain in Hokkaido a bit limiting compared to Alaska...

I Left work 2 hours early today to race up to one of the S.E. MI. "Bunny Hills" they call a "Ski Resort." Today is the first day anything has opened around here.

2 runs open! That's it,.. TWO!! The longest one,..?? 2-10ths of a mile, TOPS!! ...and they were only covered in 8-10 inches of man made, ROCK HARD, SOLID ICE!!!!

...and to make matters worse, I been pissin' myself with excitement, hoping' to get to do THAT and for only two stinking hours!!!!!!!! (I was the very last person up the lift & down that ice rink of blue run tonight!!!)

COUNT YOUR FUCKING BLESSINGS OUT THERE LADIES & GENTS!!
