2012/02/19 Very Late Season Start at Kirkwood
π 2012-02-19 00:00 in Snow
As sad as it is, by Feb 19th, I had not gone to Tahoe once this season yet. The conditions just didn't warrant the trip since their base coverage was so low.

So kirkwood had a bit ore than other folks, but they were still suffering. I got cliffed out in places I otherwise knew, and Eagle Bowl was very bare with grass everywhere still, it looked like early december.

Anyway, I made the best of it :)

the wall, not looking good, can't even traverse

I then went to the back side to check out the snow at the boundary there and go all the way to Emigrant Lake:

thanks to the tow rope, it wasn't too hard to get to the boundary
