“The ‘fresh’ was some of the heaviest Sierra cement I’ve ever skied. Got better once it was skied up a bit. Saw tons of people falling, especially early on when they ventured into the untouched. Overall, pretty fun for a 2.5 hour ski day. Also, sounded like Chinese New Year with all the bombs going off.” – Guy LaDouche

Yesterday was a crazy one in Tahoe with an avalanche burying Alpine Meadows 5-feet deep, burying 2 cars and damaging a home in the process. 3 people were rescued by firemen from their buried cars.
