    I was waiting to open this up for some "trigger". Is it the first ski movie trailers and premiers? Is it the Labor Day ski sales? How about the new magazines?

    Nope.

    This photo from the webcam this morning at Kirkwood is that trigger.

    #damnyouvoiceofreason :D

    I don't think anyone expects it to last. Even when Squaw was able to open 10/26 2012? That didn't last long. Show me some good storms the second and third week of November, and I wil be happy.

    Mt Rose in on the act too:



    OMG that is beautiful. I'm tearing up. Winter is coming . . . !

    EDIT: 259,000+ views when I posted this. I'm not the only one who is excited for winter!

    November 11th? Really Squaw?

    I'll be surprised if they pull that off...

    With their elevation, there is a slim chance of opening with something small, but the temps have to start getting colder .....now!

    There is that but then, perhaps this Mt Rose vs Squaw thing is going to be the Tahoe version of Loveland vs Arapahoe Basin.
    Both places concentrate on one run and pour the snow guns on like gangbusters. The key difference is, Loveland pass (where both of those resorts are) is much much colder.

    When we pulled out of Frisco last Friday it was 32 degrees, 28 over Vail Pass, which has been pretty consistent in Summit and Eagle. I don't think its been consistently that cold at night in Tahoe yet, but I could be wrong.

    Just watched the local weather news. High of 73º here today and lows in the 30s in the evenings for the coming week.
    The breezes feel amazing today.
