Would Baldwin be on the left and White fang on the right? (looking at the pic) Whatever the case, the ridge between them is a death wish.

Hey Crag,what's goin' on up there this morning?Is it snowin' yet? Blowin'? Fifteen years living here and I've never climbed Horsetail.Partner and I are tossin' the idea around.But my partner and I are lazy and cheap ;-).Don't really feel like havin' to chain up the front wheel drive(if it goes R2/3)and the four by costs a billion dollars to fuel.Don't get me wrong,we'll do either just don't really want to get up there only to discover 55mph wind.Also,football,pellet stove and beer are enough incentive to keep us home :-).Just wondering what yer seeing.Thanx.

Pretty benign so far.....25F and just a trace of snow overnight. Heavy overcast, with 6 to 12 inches in the forecast.

No chain requirements presently. Trail to Horsetail is broken...c'mon up!

A Nevada low has now parked itself over the east side....pumping some nice, soft snow into the area....still hoping to see it stack up 6 to 12 inches today, and on into the evening.

Presently 25F and light to moderate snow......no wind.

Dean,

I thought the skinny was no skiing at June, something about liability or something. Is the mountain open (in the sense of not being patrolled for trespassing, not in the sense that they condone it) for those of us willing to hike/skin up?

Happy New Year to you and yours!

Is a Nevada low the same as a Tonopah low? I've beem screwed by hard, cold, east winds on the crest when a Tonopah low blew in. Lift your well staked tent sort of fierce winds.

Brian, yes, you may skin up the mountain and ski it...AC is being done for liability purposes. No snowmobile access will be tolerated. Oh, and a VERY Happy New Year to you and the girls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nevada low/Tonopah low...yep, same thing. They CAN be brutally windy and/or cold...or they can be like today's event.....REALLY dry, upslope snow that is now coming down at a VERY nice rate!

Presently 3 inches of LIGHT powder on the ground...snowing at about a 2 inch per hour rate.

Current temp is 24F.

I actually got rejected by snow today at the rocks. This place is such a shithole.

A breeze freshened up during the night, raising temps considerably. Presently 41F with clear skies.

Wind will increase later today, with a wind advisory in effect through tomorrow afternoon. There will be a slight chance of snow showers the next 24 hours.

A cold front will move into the area on Thursday, with highs expected to only be in the upper teens through Saturday.

After a day of increasing clouds and wind, snow finally began falling here about 90 minutes ago.

Presently 33F with light winds.

Say there, hey!!!!!!!!!!!!
I may want to debate the usefulness of your weather beta, since you live up the hill and all.

Gorgeous day at the Sad boulders.



But yea, it sucks here so bad.

Most people that come here to play on the east side, appreciate up to date, firsthand information, Chinchen.


Frankly, I don't give a sh#t about you and your whackjob self-loathing.

Just saying that "Eastside" is a flexible term based on the elevation and WX conditions.


I love my self-loathing self.




Also, its great that you are telling the masses how shitty it is here.



P.S.
Were you tragically born without a sense of sarcasm?
