Buenos Dias my friends,
A perfect start to the storm is taking place here in the (209) I call it H.W.S (Heavy.Wet.Slop) it is the essential base building material we need to set it up for tonight's system. For those of ya'll that are not in the know, H.W.S is the snow that covers & fills it all in and creates a great bonding base. Currently it is still coming down heavy & wet here at 7800'.
Read the forecast below from the Tahoe Weather Discussion. We are looking good for a solid Saturday & Sunday of coverage. Look for Timber Creek to open mid-day tomorrow if not earlier. More terrain to open as we fill in the gaps and cross trials. More terrain to open as soon as we see it fill in.. Be careful, Look for obstacles, Ride with a friend tomorrow. It is like we are back in November early season....
"High elevation snow showers should start to push in this morning and then the heavier precip arrives later this afternoon into the evening. Looking at the forecast models overnight the trend was for the snow levels to start a little higher up near 8000 ft. this afternoon before falling. They also showed them falling a little slower but the forecast for snowfall amounts still looks good. To recap, by Saturday night 8-15 inches at lake level, 15-25 inches above 7000 ft., and 25-35 inches up along the crest. Some spots along the crest could get over 3 feet.
Storm for Sunday night around 6 inches at lake levle, 12 inches above 7000 ft, and 18 inches along the crest. We'll look at that storm a little closer tonight. Models still completely disagree for next weekend with the Euro still showing a cold trough with snow and the GFS a ridge and dry. Stay tuned...BA"
Stay Thirsty my friends,
