Power went out yesterday around 1:30 pm. There was a PG&E snowcat crew up here doing preventive maintenance, and they soon found a tree down across the line on Quarry Road. It took until today at 4:30 for everything to be fixed. Whew!
The summit parking area is pretty much full, and rather chaotic. Since there is much unplowed snow, and buried cars, you have to take your chances. You might get lucky going to the summit, or you might just park at Big Creek. That road is groomed.
And it is COLD. 12 last night, and I am betting on 6 tonight. Be prepared. All the groomed roads are in pretty good shape, and there is a ton of powder to ride if you want that.
Remember, Lakeshore is open now, so give them your business. And….., Happy New Year!!
