Even with this cold weather, the snow levels have dropped a ton.
Its only going to get better with this "summer" weather approaching.

Some pics from the Tahoe side (6/9/11):

Here are some shots taken just shy of the staging area on the Tahoe side. Just made a road trip up with the truck to see if towing a trailer in was getting anywhere close to possible. Answer: maybe, in a couple weeks.
Bear out sniffing around for food. Be on alert.

Last couple pics of truck is where we turned around, just shy of the staging area. The snow becomes consistently 1-2+ feet deep at that point. And is pretty mushy.

Good times to be had soon....:D

If you're talking about Hartless, it was cleared by a local, should be able to get over it now :)

John,
How much snow at the Kiosk? Was the caution tape still up that Mark and I put at the spillway?
That drift before the second dam is HUGE!! Looks the same as last weekend.

Still 2-3 feet of snow at the kiosk, the tape is still up, and that hole is pretty big! Same one I fell in two weeks ago and was advising folks to scout before they went across the spillway. Caution tape was a good idea though.

I'm guessing most of the trail will be in good shape by then, with the exception of the Tahoe side. All depends on the weather from now til then. Pray for sun and wind :smokin:

Sitting up at loon lake the temps stayed were the snow melted threw the night. Still getting over the back side of the first damn on less than 35s have fun. And it will be good slush most of the day and into the night.

The report is looking like a lot of snow remaining for the 25th-30th. We are wanting to come down for a run on those days. Keeping a close eye.
