Hope Valley/Carson Pass Area Snowshoe Day

Postby madeintahoe » Fri Feb 09, 2007 9:08 am

Thought I would post this album for anyone interested in the Hope Valley Carson Pass area. Eight of us including Kerstin from here enjoyed a half day snowshoe & Xcountry ski hike out in Hope Valley! It was an absolute gorgeous day and very very warm, almost hot! The snow pack there at least where we were in this beautiful open meadow was not very much, maybe two feet, lots of willows & twigs sticking up through the snow in places, but still enough snow for snowshoeing and skiing. had an awesome day & it felt great to get out...Sorry kinda late for posting..almost a month ago :eek:

Nice! Pretty blue skies and snow fun! Hope to get the splitboard out this year!

MaidenTahoe - thanks for posting - looks like a beautiful day with lots of fun for all. I have been dying to do some snow shoeing this year - twice I have carried mine this year - but we are having a dry winter with not enough snow to enjoy. maybe some new storms will change that.

Cori, Tom & Mike..Thank you so much..it was a good day :nod:
Yeah..there really is not a lot of snow....when I compare this year and last year it is so strange the difference. Even this last storm we got...we got about 4" at the house which is at 6300, but I heard Kirkwood Ski resort got 18" of new snow which is good. I think that bitter cold we had in January kept the snow in pretty good shape.
Thanks again all of you :)
