Mixed precipitation at Alpine Meadows but very good snow conditions overall. No crowds to speak of. Poor visibility off the Summit lift with the first 300 vertical in the clouds. Expecting a few inches of snow today. Tomorrow and Sunday should be excellent!

Powder was excellent on the feb 15th, 2021. Snowed the entire day. The mountains peaked out mid morning for awhile then fog set in in the afternoon. Great day snowboarding.

First timer at Homewood today, loved it. Mellow crowd and tons of fresh snow. Quail’s Face goes deep, fresh tracks everywhere. Hoping for a few more powder days at Homewood this season.

Another great ski day at Squaw with 15 new inches of Tahoe Talcum last night. The view is off Red Dog overlooking the Lakeview Trail. Drier snow up above 8000 feet and overall excellent conditions with another foot of POW tonight. Yes and the crowds are friendly, c’mon up.

Beautiful day in Alpine Meadows. Icy groomers in the morning, but the beautiful weather quickly turned that in to playful spring conditions. No lift lines whatsoever. Move around the mountain throughout the day and where able to find great skiing all day long. Picture is from the Treeline express lift. Riding The Moment Commander 108 for the first time, great all mountain ski.

Excellent conditions at Squaw with no line more than 10 minutes all day Friday. More cars in the lots than skiers in the slopes. Photo from top of K22.

Nice Sunday ride, lots of people but not crazy. Snow was well groomed, gripy and not too thin. No extra layer needed, just sunscreen. Felt like it almost 60 degrees today.

Friday’s 30-minute lift line at chair 6. Saturday is going to be even more crowded. Many people not taking mask wearing seriously. You’ll be elbow-to-elbow with exposed noses and exposed mouths.

It turns out that it is possible to have too much powder. 3 feet+ on top. Find a track out or you’re getting buried. Thanks for a great day Homewood!

Had a nice day at the 'wood 12/28. Getting tickets for pickup wasn't too complicated, and grabbing a few hot cocoas for the kids was contactless and socially distanced. In the Covid era Apres is a little different but we were there to slide down the hills. Snow was packed powder with a light dusting on top and made for nice riding. Terrain was a bit limited as the top still had quite a bit of uncovered rock, the backside was closed and no terrain parks were open yet. All in all it was a nice day. My kids mostly hung out on the Solitude lift and had fun.
