It was a beautiful morning in the greater Tahoe Basin today. Anywhere from 4-10 inches of new snow fell overnight, and just about everything in sight had a light layer of sparkling fresh snow this a.m. The new snow that fell came in heavy at times last evening, and snow showers lingered all morning. The snow was light, dry, and incredibly light. The only "problem" from a skiers standpoint is there wasn't really anything to support such low density snow. Turns were harvested for sure, but adventurous would be the most accurate way to describe today's skiing on Mt. Rose. Reports from Sugar Bowl confirm the same. Nov. 4th Tahoe Storm Report | Mt.

It was a beautiful morning in the greater Tahoe Basin today. Anywhere from 4-10 inches of new snow fell overnight, and just about everything in sight had a light layer of sparkling fresh snow this a.m. The new snow that fell came in heavy at times last evening, and snow showers lingered all morning. The snow was light, dry, and incredibly light. The only “problem” from a skiers standpoint is there wasn’t really anything to support such low density snow. Turns were harvested for sure, but adventurous would be the most accurate way to describe today’s skiing on Mt. Rose. Reports from Sugar Bowl confirm the same.

Here’s a morning view looking south towards Mt. Tallac,

and west towards the Alpine/Squaw area.

This shot speaks to the beauty of the morning, but also to the light overall snow accumulations.

Truth be told the pow turns I skied in the Rose area were great, but skinning was arguably just as fun, if not better.

Here’s a few shots courtesy of the Alpenglow crew from this a.m. at Sugar Bowl.

Based on a few pow turns on Rose and supported by reports from Sugar Bowl, this new snow is great, but it’s just not really solid enough for most people to venture out there for some turns. Not bad for a few fluffy inches overnight, but rock skis are highly recommended if you plan to head out looking for some snowy fun this weekend. All of us scraped a little something out skiing this a.m. along with the pow we skied. However, maybe Saturday and Sunday’s storm will give us that much more and we’ll be in better ski shape by early next week. A new foot above 6,000 feet, which is currently forecasted, will be amazing if it ends up coming through. Let’s hope for the best and THINK SNOW!
