Higher elevations could be below -25F with the wind values! :eek:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Not a huge snow event for sure, Tahoe area is supposed to get several inches to almost a foot, sure is better than nothing. This one is more about the cold temps/wind.

I've heard that report many a time, only to get a dusting...
