Mt Tallac, Angora, or Echo Peak 2/11 or 2/12

  • February 11, 2014 · 8:00 AM

If this weekend's forecast holds true and the snowpack is stable, I'm thinking about heading to the Mt Tallac area, either Tuesday 2/11 or Wednesday 2/12 (I can do either). I'm driving up from the Bay area, so we can carpool or meet there.

    Did you guys get out yesterday? How was it?

      No, but I went to some "sidecountry" at Kirkwood and it wasn't the greatest. A bit crusty/hard above 8k ft and glue below it.

    Alright, tomorrow's forecast is looking good, mostly sunny with some clouds, so I'm heading up on Wednesday, 2/12. The Sierra Avalanche Center's snowpack post from Jake's Peak on 2/10 (http://www.sierraavalanchecenter.org/mon-02102014-1230-snowpack-observations-jakes-peak) show decent snowpack conditions. I'm up for most anywhere, and we can decide on where to go once you say you're in. I'm driving from Oakland, but I only have space for one person, but will gladly be a passenger too. LET'S GET THIS!

      Hi Harry, I won't be able to make it up on Tuesday or Wednesday, so I'm heading up on Monday. Are you still interested in going?

      Hi Alan, I'm free next Saturday and Sunday and was thinking about heading up to Tahoe for some backcountry. I haven't really thought about a location, but let me know if you're interested in going and we can figure something out.

    I may be able to make it. Let me know as your plans develop.

    Really glad to see something like this posted here. I'm going to Japan to ski next week, but if you keep posting I really want to meet up later in the spring.
