Awesome day at Alpine. lift lines were sooo short it felt like a weekday (it was a Holiday Weekend). Groomers for days and soft moguls. Only way it could have been better was if Sherwood and Lakeview chairs were open.

Varying conditions at Squaw yesterday. Plenty of groomers open, most non-groomed is hard crust, but there is some powder left in the low points and on a few faces.

I almost never post reviews but it's very misleading to say they have 41 runs open. I was there on 1/31/18 and everyone was going down the same few runs. Everything else was essentially non-skiable. Their base is very thin. Wait for more snow.

Mt.Rose is feeling the love Best coverage in Tahoe and I'm happy to see the snow guns going on Saturday afternoon keeping the busy pistes fresh. Downside is an unfairly increased lift ticket price -- delivered wityh the excuse that Vail Resorts charges more

Nice day with some good snow still left over from the day before. Decent base but a lot of rocks still sticking out. One more storm needed.

hey guys! I drove up there today. It was raining. It rained last night. I could see the golf course it's so dry. I'm a spoiled rider. We need at least 3 more storms for it to be worth anything. it's not worth the drive..or money. I have a pass still waiting to use.

38 degrees at 7:30 A.M. this morning. the snow is wet and heavy and the skiing was good for the first hour at the top. as temps have warmed rain off and on at the base and heavy wet broken snow persists. Grooming was late and not very pressive. Even groomed runs are wet and sticky. We need colder weather

Went on Saturday 01/06, rained at the base and snowed up top during the morning. Clouds cleared out around 11. Fun up top and sloppy down low. There is enough snow and runs open to have fun. Old man winter is going to help us out this week, I'll be back up again this weekend

Great but of powder on the top of the mountain. Lots of bowls and fun off piste snowboarding. The low snow level added a level of difficulty and fun to the runs.

Snow is pretty terrible, but it's virtually all man made and the temps at the top are in the 40's so you can't expect much. Lift lines aren't bad and still good fun.

Conditions are relatively good, considering the lack of snow the past two weeks. The Wall, the Cornice, and the Ruet are all open providing more advanced runs. Sharpen your edges!

Thursday November 30th war. temps continue with a daytime high of 45 degrees. A bit icy in the morning but Kirkwood did an OUTSTANDING job grooming the runs and laying down some man-made snow. The high pressure syste. continues pray for ❄...looks like dry conditions for the next 2 weeks.

About 17 runs open. 5 lifts. all at the top but it's nice and quite. Able to do 12 runs before noon. Still choppy and rocky in some areas. totally worth coming up for.
