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!
