Our crew did a quick long weekend to Tahoe from 4/28 - 5/1. They have some serious snow out there. It was 63 on Saturday and conditions were quite soft.

It was cooler on Sunday. We took the base to base gondola over to Alpine. The views were stunning.  The snow was firmer on Sunday.

I only took a few photos. I'm waiting for my buddy to blow up Facebook as he snapped a bunch. 

Here is Lake Tahoe in the background from Alpine


This is Palisades from the base. I did not want to be a dirty old man but I saw more bikini tops on Saturday than I did all last summer at the beach.

We've had about a week of high temps around 80 degs in the Salt Lake Valley and 60 degs at the remaining three open ski areas of Snowbird, Solitude, and Brighton with lots of sunshine.  It doesn't make for the greatest spring ski conditions, too warm.   The warm temps have also caused an unprecedented amount of lengthy access road closures especially for 210/Little Cottonwood Canyon.   Cooler pattern begins tonight with highs about 20 degs cooler respectively.
