|December 20th Conditions|
I said this in my last post and I believe it is worth repeating. A typical La Nina year will not have as many storms but should produce an average amount of precipitation. This weather pattern, if it holds true, is setting up for some giant storms to slam the Tahoe area around Christmas.
This forecast is for 18 days down the road. If the pattern accelerates, which there are signs of that being a possibility, I will let you know. But for now, most Tahoe ski areas are open starting Friday. That includes Mt. Rose which will be open top to bottom on Friday. My thought is NW to Kit Karson traverse to Kit down to Pondo. Considering the lack of snowfall they have done a remarkable job. I encourage one and all to get out there starting Friday and get your legs in shape. Come X-Mas the POW is going to be deep and you don't want your legs burning out in the first hour!
Stay Tuned ...
