The sky is clouding over again with snow forecast for Friday and Saturday. The amounts and snow levels are not clear at this point in time, but the lovely sunshine that we enjoyed today is gone. It snowed Tuesday evening leaving another new coat of snow on the mountain Wednesday morning. The snow consistency was erratic on Wednesday varying from a couple of inches over crust on the south facing slopes (God’s Knob and portions of South Face at Sherwood) to six inch deep powder over a firm, but smooth surface, to heavy wind packed snow, and finally to excellent ten inch deep powder. North facing slopes appeared to have deeper powder and more consistent snow than the south facing slopes. It certainly was an enjoyable day with runs in the Outer-Outer Limits area from Lakeview to the road below Sherwood Chair and a primo, untracked powder run from Lakeview Chair to Snowcrest through Field of Dreams. Today the snow and visibility proved to be excellent in the morning hours. We took our boards out and played around on the lower mountain with an out-of-town friend riding over perfectly smooth groomed corduroy, nicely skier packed winter snow. Locals reported excellent powder snow on the north facing slopes of High Traverse that was closed on Wednesday and in Subdivision Bowl where the snow was holding up nicely in the trees. Warmer air temperature and sun will change the consistency of the snow tonight, but skiing should remain very good over the next few days, especially with more new snow forecast for the weekend.
Randy Salzman requested I included a copy of an email he sent to me regarding a fund raiser for the Adaptive Ski School this weekend. This is a great program and anything that you can do to support it is very welcome.
I'm writing because I'm going to do a fundraiser this weekend to help support the Tahoe
Adaptive Ski School at Alpine. I was hoping you might include info about this in your next
missive to your faithful readers. Below is a copy of a post I made about it on an online
board. Folks can either follow the instructions for making donations, or they can bring me
a check Saturday morning. I'll be at locker #260 in the First Aid locker room (right behind
the picnic table) around 8:30 getting ready.
Enjoy your day. Andy
