Tsf trip snow report update 3/18

Went out to tsf 2/18. Snow started around the last section of fire break five and varied in Dept up to about 3 feet at the top of 7up. That was as far as we made it
Crushers


Air plane hill


7up


Top of the road by 7up. Finally turned around here

We were up there Jan 28th, lots of snow. No one had gone into the crushers yet and broken the snow. Didn't go in either, I think I would have done fine but the only other guy with us that might have gone in was on stickies and was having issues getting that far with the snow. Will see what it looks like tomorrow though.

Got to about 100 yards past where firebreak crosses the road the last time. Road was unbroken. Might have made it up but I had to let out of it, the wire to my trans cooler fan came out of the plug on the relay for it and the trans started puking oil at this point, once I was stopped it was going higher was done with. We tried to go up the trail also but with two rigs on stickies it wasn't happening either.

Played around at the rock garden a little it and then I went and flailed around on little Rubicon for a little bit, couldn't get up that either, slimy claw was just not going to let it happen.

Snow wheeling TSF? Is there still snow?

Are there any recent reports of snow depth in the higher elevations @ Browns Camp/ TSF? I was thinking of going snow wheeling tomorrow ( Sun Mar 26).

Shitty snow is deep as fuck. Road is clear up to the lower filter. We really just need a few guys to hop in there and churn up the garbage that is in there so it melts faster. I was able to walk around a bit, till I sank up to my nuts on a bad step.
