Current Rubicon Conditions? snow?

Thinking of getting one last run in to spider this weekend.
Anyone know how much snow (if any) is up there right now?
I know a few inches fell at the resorts last week.

Im just worried about dragging your little lawn mower powered tank up the slabs.
Not too easy in 12" of fluff.

We'll just need to stuff your 454 into that thing to make your D70 worth while.

Went this last weekend. The trail from Wentworth to Spider was excellent, some snow on the ground but not on the trail, temps in the teens at night.

There expecting snow tonight but light. Wish I could go again this weekend, should be GREAT.

This is just my uneducated oppinion, but, There will be a little snow up there, probally not enough to do anything, or even make a snow ball. Up at the ski resorts there isn't enough to do anything with, and it isn't even cold enough to make snow, except Boreal. There are like 5 good storms lining up for northern Cali, but who knows how that will effect the 'Con this weekend.

There will be a few of us headed up to Bassi on Sunday for a day run...Come rain, snow, hell or high water...anybody else in? Will be leaving Davis area around 8am. We're looking for snow, but will settle for anything we can call wheelin'. We will have the woman folk with us so pack up the family and bring it! Hope to see some of you there. Dixon4Wheelers

Ended up looking at the snow cams earlier. The only resort w/ any decent snow is Kirkwood, the rest are dry.
Besides the chance of some rain, it looks like its all good.
