Tahoe Nugget #29:

Backcountry skiing Mt. Rose

Although no new snow has fallen for more than two weeks (since Dec. 1), back-country skiing is still fun and enjoyable. And the NWS forecast is finally hinting at positive news weather-wise. Computer models are starting to suggest a breakdown in the stubborn West Coast high-pressure ridge that has kept us high and dry. Due to the forecaster's current low confidence with this scenario, however, it is definitely too soon to quit doing the Washoe Indian Snow Dance. But considering our recent stagnant weather pattern, almost any change is good. The Pacific storms will eventually arrive, but with the Christmas vacation period just around the corner, Tahoe resorts are hoping that they show up sooner, rather than later.
