    Yeah! I won't spam with more pictures, but the top of the Northwest lift is looking great as of now. Thank you for the good news about snowmaking!

    So thread title includes the word 'Meetups'...

    Our ski club has a trip to Tahoe planned for Feb 4-11. I've put a deposit down on this. We'll be staying at Heavenly with a side trip possible to Kirkwood or Northstar. Any Pugskiers gonna be around the lake, then?

    So they might be able to open on Halloween day as planned. Lovely for the locals! Opening day and Halloween on the same day?

    I have a nice 3 bdrm / 2 bath timeshare overlooking Heavenly's Stage Coach lift. I can only be there Saturday Feb 18th thru Wednesday morning this year. If any responsible party would like a great hook up Wednesday thru Saturdays normal check out time, sent me a pm. I was thinking $450 for the 3 days/nights lodging, but I am open to a best offer.

    Just checked the Rose snow report. It went back in time. We're getting Thurs 10/13. At least the webcams show snow still at base.

    Mt Rose is showing surprisingly good coverage up top. They have the guns lined up and ready to go, but surprisingly aren't making any snow down low, where they will definitely need some befor opening in 10 days (and its ~20f right now).

    Northstar has coverage up top, is melted out at the base and hasn't started making snow yet. But given that their open is 29 days away, I wouldn't expect it.

    However, Boreal is making snow this morning, also shooting for an October open I believe.

    BA says all rain until late saturday or sunday. Then 1-2' up high, 6-9" down to 7000 and a few inches at the lake level.

    After that conflicting models. One shows a very dry Nov (booooooo!) and the other a more moderate Nov. Clearly the latter is right and the forecaster of the former should be fired.

    Not sure how I stomached to Like your latest post, @skibob :) It should read "Like/Thank" :D Thanks much for the report. I'll check the Mt Rose webcams. I am thinking no way the open on Monday. THE HORROR.

    Update, I just checked the cameras. We are far from a season. Even at Rose, the highest point. Sigh.

    I dunno, probably not monday, but I think they COULD be ready a few days later if it plays out the way that BA says. Now, whether they have much open is a different question. Sounds like they could have more than enough up high. They can make a lot down low with the cold front that is being pushed in by the precip. The question will be mid elevation, do they or can they have enough snow to run something served by NW?

    The Monday opening was never planned as a full opening. It was hoping to open a small park for Halloween. At the moment still targeting Nov 11th for "real" opening although it will be very weather dependent.

    This camera shot was all snow a week ago.

    This was a shot at Mt Rose a week ago.

    @spencer is a member here but he rarely posts. Although we're still waiting on a review or two from him.
    He does a lot of hiking with @Stev in the Tahoe area during the summer.

    @Mendieta are you going to be in the area for our 1st Anniversary kick off party?
