2014/03/26 Finally Some Snow Days in South Lake Tahoe
π 2014-03-26 00:00 in Snow
Johannes and I went during the week to catch a couple of POW days at kirkwood. We then went to get leftovers at Heavenly on a sunny day. The next day, I took off to work sicn ethe weather was going to be crap anyway (and it sure was), and we finished off with an 18 inch day at Kirkwood on sunday which was pretty epic, except for the crowds ;)

Day 1 was a good powder day:

Day #2 was quite good too:




Day #3 was sunny at Heavenly:

And then, I followed Johannes to Killebrew. The run down wasn't bad, but the bottom was pittyful:






this looks nice, must be fun during the summer

We took saturday off, and we were right, many lifts were closed for wind but by the end of the day, we started getting real snow, and more into the night. As predicted, we got 18 inches at kirkwood, and it was a pretty epic day, even if the crowds got everything tracked way too quicky.



Dude, some snow fell on your car :)

A big thanks to Johannes for driving there and back, and Jim for having us at his condo for the first 2 nights.
