This weeks skiing at the Tahoe Cross Country Ski area was incredible!
Last Saturday the trails at the Nordic Center were great. I skied to the top of Gold trail where the snow coverage was still plentiful. The higher I went the deeper the snow.
Last Sunday I headed out to the fiberboard. The last leg, Extra Gold, has not been groomed, but is still ski-able. On the way up I saw two sets of tracks. The first set was from a skier that had made it up about three quarters of the way. The second set of tracks were from a bear that also made it about three quarters of the way, these were the biggest bear tracks that I had ever seen. Coming back down was great. There was plenty of snow and very few obstacles.
On Monday I traversed my way up the front side of Lakeview. I was able to follow snow shoe tracks about half way up the hill. When I got to the top the snow was thin, but still ski-able.
Today was the first day I was not able to go cross country skiing due to weather conditions. It rained all morning and slowly turned to snow as the day went on.
Hopefully the snow will continue throughout the night and make for good skiing tomorrow.
If you would like to check the weather for tomorrow I recently found a great site: The Weather Geek of Tahoeloco.com
