A buddy was out there a week ago or so. Relatively good snow up high from pic on top of burst but getting out from anything besides top of dodge would be exposed obstacles for sure. Sorry not much of an update.

Some good days had so far.

Moto avy class last weekend.

But warm this week. Maybe a couple inches up top on Sunday, but then more sun. :(

Hi Mark,
There's probably only a couple of us doing any skiing/skinning, and I've been riding the sled lately more than anything.

Not sure if Duncan and Shanna will see this just yet, but they've ski'd off Pinecrest Peak taking different lines from the look out area above Herring Creek Dome. Putting in from the Lake, taking the line to that mini lake then east ward skinning up, iirc.

Talked to a riding friend who has actually ridden off Herring Creek Dome. I'd be nervous about avy off those slabs.

More of a skin up and mellow terrain, is from areas past Strawberry on 108, east of the hwy. Look for the big pull out on the left for the parking. Sometimes the snow plow berm has to be chopped so you can get on top of it. Nothing steep. But that was a worthy few hours one afternoon for me.

I have seen one guy taking the FS roads out from Cow Creek quite a ways. May have been just a skin up and out for a work out rather than good turns.

I've skinned up Gooseberry road to backside of Dodge. That's a cool way to get some runs. But for more quiet the Burst Rock area, like you saw, is good. The snow machinas avoid that area. Spring skiing of course is the ticket up at the Pass.

Hope that helps a little,
Rob

This last sunday snow dropped down to Dodge Ridge base so the lower elevations gave access to higher elevation good coverage.

More snow expected this weekend, but not a bomb cyclone amount. The tgiving weekend looked amazing. Hope we get more snow soon!

Hold up! where is this?... I'm at work and don't have my book on me.


Rob asked all of us to post something.
Here is a picture taken last month - Me on EL Diablo Feo - 5.8 Three stars, Lost World area.
A great climb.






Lost World, right side, just before dropping down into the lower section.

Reeeeediculous amount of snow up there. This is one for the books.

Heading up tmrw. 108 is single pass groomed at least to the Vista and the whoopties are mellowed out now.

stoked to get out.

"For snow, estimates for this week include 5 to 6.5 feet on Carson Pass/State Route 88 (SR-88), Ebbetts Pass/SR-4 and Sonora Pass/SR-108. Snow levels are expected to fall to 4,500 to 5,500 feet this the week, with visibility issues."

incredible!

I really dislike FB's handling of image quality. Not that this is a great pic, but the sizing even expanded on FB doesn't really match to how the picture was taken.

Anyone know if the gate is open to this in the summer?
