Peavine Mountain

February 16, 2019

Location: North side of Peavine Mountain Area (Granite Peak)


Conditions: Decently good, creamy snow and a few sagebrush tip knockers down low, getting lighter and windloading higher up.


Concerns: Windloading on top of several weird layers.  Watch out at higher elevations and on windloaded slopes.


The good: Reno folks are going to have a backyard stash this week.  Sagebrush tip knockers are good anchors.


The bad: Sagebrush tip knockers, barbed wire fence approach, winds and weird sublimation snow.


Get some!
