Strick,
Could you post the snow depth report here. It seems I see in multipule treads people asking about the current conditions. Im following the weather there as closely as possible on the web, but it doesnt compare to hearing it first hand.

Thanks, Walt

I was out at my friends house in Spanish Springs last night and the snow they had in their yard was 2 - 8 inches deep and melting. The way things are going snow should not be a problem. Now the fog has been a total pain. :bang:

It is melting, but slowly. Not enough to make me load my bike and head over to Moonrocks, though. If any of you long-distance travellers have a go/no-go decision date, I'm willing to make a recon ride report.

D36-108A,
Thanks, that would be helpful. check your pm box

Strick,
Ill be wanting last minute input from you as well.

The bikes need to be in location either way. I can make a final go-nogo decision as late as Saturday the 12th. If the local people say the riding would be OK, even marginal on the 12th, were goin. If their opinion is that the riding would be no good, a waste of time, the bike haul is cancelled. Since I dont know the area, I have to rely on their opinion. I am not gonna drive 2200 miles each way to hang in a casino.

don't hang in a casino if moonrocks is snowy. ride somewhere else!

there's a race (109 miles or so) about 90 mins from reno that weekend. i havn't ridden there, but it seems to be a bit lower than moonrocks (it's east of pyramid lake) and should get less snow since it's further east. sounds so far like the race is a go.

Been watching the weather reports for Reno, NV.

And it's warming up..... yippee!

They're showing sunny,high 40's/low 50s out for next ten days -- so it looks like it's trending in the right direction finally!

:yeehaw:

Can't wait.... :laugh:

I was just at Moonrocks a few hours ago, just looking from my truck. Much more snow than I expected. The staging area is still covered with several inches. The road up is developing muddy rain ruts and some 2WD vehicles may not get through. The road past the staging area is fully covered in snow. I couldn't really see the trails but you can bet they are covered. Some of the south-facing trails may be in better shape.

Lots of life struggles right now - sorry for my lack of input.

I have had two knee surgeries (same knee) in 13 days. My 88 yo father is failing, and we will be losing him within a few days.

5" of snow in my front yard, temps in low 40's for the last week.

We're still looking at 3 weeks of melt time -- going to continue to be positive about going.

I got off the phone with Tahoerider just a couple of hours ago, and he said the weather is warming up, and he would take a drive out there this coming weekend. We know that the snow is there, and that it's around 4-8 inches. BUT, with the warmer temps, this should melt off in the valley and the staging area. But, I would expect the snow to still be there at the higher elevations. Thats what makes it FUN!!!! After talking to Kevin, I felt ALOT better about the conditions out there. So long as they don't get another dumping on, we should be cool! We were going to touch base again at the end of the week to see how things were progressing in the MELTING ARENA!
Walt, pack your bag, this trip is gonna work out!!!!!
