First Tracks in California’s Eastern Sierras
In California droughts are real. They happen. We are still in one of the longest in recent memory. As a skier, it’s hard to complain about lack of snow when much more is at stake when it comes to water supply. Nevertheless, the last three snow seasons have been a disappointing whirlwind of high expectations and unfortunate outcomes. But winter always brings snow and when it comes, we rip. When it’s low-tide, we adapt. We get creative. We learn. When it snows 12″ of wet snow with 6″ of fresh on top for the first snowfall of the season?? We’re ready.
The Eastern Sierras got 12-18″ of snow above 9k this weekend. Not a ton by local standards BUT certainly enough for our first turns of the 2014-15 season. After a short skin up some familiar ridges (x4 laps) it was official…Winter is here. Now let’s PRAY FOR SNOW!
