Tahoe Powder Day

March 28, 2012 Sierra at Tahoe Powder Day

Although this ski season got off to a rather disappointing start this year, the latter part of the season ushered in  more winter storms and excellent powder riding. Check out this video clip of  on a recent Tahoe powder day.

Skiing Deep Powder at Sierra at Tahoe

Flowski skiing the powder at Sierra
Today was a great day on the mountain. Sierra reported 26" of fresh powder overnight with a deep snow base of 112' and the skiing was awesome. I think it was the best day of the season (so far). It was in the teens so the powder was nice and fluffy. We got an early start so Jack and I were in the line at Grand View when it started loading at 9am. Our first run down Castle was wonderful totally un-tracked fluffy powder with faceshot's on every turn, top to bottom non-stop no wind or drifts. We actually took the time to shoot some cool powder skiing photos and videos today of friends at Sierra, hope enjoy the images. It's not easy to slow down for pictures and movies on nice powderdays, but your always so glad to have the images later on. After like 4 or 5 runs on the front side we headed for the incomparable Huckleberry Canyon. The snow was absolutely incredible back there, holy cripes. Fact: the snow is always deeper back there in Huckleberry Canyon and I'm here to tell ya, today was no exception, but Huckleberry Canyon is not for everybody, it's more of a backcountry skiing experience, yet it's actually inbounds. There are plenty of cliffs and big air drops all over, that's why us locals affectionately call it "huck your berries canyon"!!! If you wanna' play your'e gonna pay, as it's a long, long catwalk back to the main Sierra at Tahoe Base area and the Huckleberry Canyon returning catwalk is uphill in several spots depending upon just how far you go over.

On The Way to Northstar at Tahoe

We woke up to like 5 inches of fresh snow on Lake Tahoe's south shore. We decided to drive north up to Northstar at Tahoe for skiing today.  It was my first time skiing at Northstar and we had a nice day skiing on the mountain. There was a good 6 inches of light fluffy powder on top of the ski hill which made for nice conditions.

Here's a picture of Lake Tahoe on our way driving up to
Northstar at Tahoe this morning along the east shore.

It's that transitional time here in the Sierras, rain here in town and snow in the higher elevations. It was a cold wet fall day when Jack, Dwight, Joe and I decided to go for a drive up Carson Pass to see the first real fresh snow of the season. We had a great time playing in the new fallen snow. We can hardly wait for ski season. It was nice to see everything covered with the blanket of white. Hope you enjoy the photos from the little trip.
