Just giving you a hard time! Tallac is one of my favorite descents in the area. I realy like Jakes and Maggies!

Not too worried about the lack of comsolidation. With the weather today and Friday it will be fine for a good workout.

Just got off the Donner climb. You could ski the top 1000" in 18" of suprisingly dry snow.

Thanks for all the great information so far Scotty.....did you get any pictures from your tour of Donner? Please keep me posted on the evolution of the skiing conditions down there....it has proven more than helpful so far.

Almost daily reports on backcountry skiing at Tahoe are posted on the ski trip reports forum at TheBackcountry.net and on the Telemark Talk forum at Telemarktips.com under the Sierra Ski & Snow Conditions topic. Going high to Carson Pass and Mt.Rose for good coverage is required most Decembers. Waterhouse, Round Top, Red Lake ,Stevens ,and other South Tahoe/Carson Pass peaks have lot's of choices on different faces. Have a great trip !
