It snowed here in Tahoe on October 10th.  A lot.  It’s all melted now and pretty much about 5 hours after it snowed, but Freel Peak still has snow today. Locals say that statically early snow in October means a great season.  Here’s to hoping!!

October First…. CALLING FOR SNOW!

Another way SLT kills Montgomery County…. SNOWBOARDING options.  Heavenly is only about 10 minutes from house by bus or car.  Happy Sigh.  Ski Liberty was the crappy, superexpensive mountain by my house in Maryland.  And a season pass to Heavenly is about half the price of Liberty.  Now, the snow watch begins!!!!!

From http://www.accuweather.com, bolding done by me!

MOTORISTS TRAVELING OVER THE HIGH SIERRA PASSES NEED TO CARRY
TIRE CHAINS AND BE PREPARED FOR WINTER LIKE DRIVING CONDITIONS.
