We have been frustrated, just like the rest of you, waiting for our satellite link to wake back up, since our schedule does not allow us to get to the Lake until about December 7. Meanwhile, we look at the picture, just like you. What I see shows me about 4 feet. I am also told several areas (Haskins?) have about 6 feet. Also, our agreement with the Forest Service does not allow the groomer to operate until December 15. There will be a bunch of us up there ready to run it then. And until then, there is about a foot of wind pack over three to five feet of very dry powder. (Don’t break through!)

The internet connection for this website is through a satellite dish. The dish has a heater, but it has been overwhelmed by the rapid snow fall. And, we are in Reno till about December 7.
Eventually (if it ever stops snowing), the heater will free up the dish and we will be back to normal up dates. Till then, I apologize. In storms like we are having, I sometimes go out and clean off the dish as much as every 15 minutes. It can, and does snow that much at Bucks.
I can report that snow depth is now around 4 feet most everywhere, and Plumas County has stopped plowing beyond the summit. So we are now officially in winter.
