Thanks Hikerchick395!

Indeedy, here's a video of a couple of guys passing the puck around. Can't wait to get up there in my Puckalolos jersey and battered CCMs.

With no change in the weather, my wife and I drove up from Clovis yesteday (1/2/12). First time Ive been in Tuoloumne Meadows in January. We had a blast, played tourists and pickinicked, and just generlly enjoyed the spectacular views. Yosemite is beautiful no matter what, but this was a side of Yosemite we had never gazed upon. Simply tremendous!!!!

Here's one pic I found...not at Tenaya though



That's the Mammoth crew on Gull Lake over in June. Most of those guys have been skating all the area lakes for almost 2 months. They have been up to Tioga and Tenaya a couple times.

the guy in the back is mlca.

It's unbelievable that the snow hasn't flown yet.

I can't believe how much less snow there is in Yosemite than in the "mountains" of Southern California! There's snow starting below 5,000 feet down here.

You must register an account and login to view files/photos attached to this post.

We were in Death Valley this week (here's my write-up: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7316) and came back up 395 and over Tioga yesterday evening (my GPS kept telling me to turn around as it couldn't believe the pass would be open). There really is very little snow anywhere - I thought snow was scarce in Yosemite two weeks ago (its similar now, with a minimal amount on Tioga Pass), but south of Mammoth is as bad or worse.

Here's a photo of the Whitney area from above Lone Pine:
