Incredible start to the winter

Posted in Ski+Snowboard | January 22, 2013 | By Tahoe South

It snowed a lot in December. In fact, it is said to be the second snowiest December on record in Tahoe South. It’s also been staying cold, keeping the snow in great condition. The backcountry was somewhat unstable for a while, but things seem to be calming down now and the Sierra Avalanche Center has downgraded the avalanche danger to “low.” I was a bit too busy skiing to document things, but here are a few photos I snapped and a quick video of one of our runs from the top of Heavenly down to Gardnerville.
