      Shortydude, when I first read your post I misread SLT as STL and thought your group was coming to our friendly but ice-packed little resort near St. Louis, Missouri. That would be an odd thing to do, South Lake Tahoe makes more sense ;-)

          More snow on tap Sunday and Monday ... Right on ! More snow may hit us right before or during Shredfest , we may re arrange Shredfest line up to take advantage of which resorts get the most snow ...

          WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW AND STRONG WINDS...WHICH IS IN EFFECT

            Snow!!

            Mt Rose made out big time in this latest storm scoring 2 feet of snow compared to other Tahoe ski resorts getting around a foot . More snow is on the way .. I am sure Sempai is up at Mt. Rose and will soon give us a report on the conditions there . The Shredfest line up of resorts will likely be changed to allow one or two days at Mt. Rose . watch the calendar as Shredfest approaches!

              Cool. We were getting worried. We've never been to Mt. Rose and would love to try a new place especially if they have snow.

                I'm waiting to go up after this next storm coming tonight and tomorrow. What worries me is the 50-degree temps forecasted for Rose at the end of the week. It's a vicious cycle. Colder temps and another storm right before the fest would be nice.

                            Not as much as Maria and I will miss being there with you and the rest of the wonderful riders in our community.

                            For those that are not aware, Maria and I purchased a new travel trailer last summer and plan on travelling the next two summers. So we are planning a new cycle for attending Shredfest. We will skip it for two years in a row, then attend the next two. Shredfest 7 (2015) is the start of the two Shredfests we are skipping. But we will be back for Shredfest 9 (2017) and 10 (2018)!

                            FYI for the 30+ riders that have confirmed their attendance for Shredfest 7 in just over a week and those tentatively planning on attending, watch for additional information in your email account that I will be sending out later this week.
