On Skiing: Long-Range Forecast

Snow, then sunny skies in Tahoe, followed by periods of high frustration and scattered melancholy.

It’s snowing in Tahoe as I write this. Which is great if you live in Tahoe. Unfortunately, I no longer do. I’m about as far from the crown jewel of the Sierras as possible while still living within the borders of the continental United States.

I know it’s snowing there because from November through April, I check the weather at Lake Tahoe at least once a week. I go to my favorite weather website and punch in the zip code for California’s Olympic Valley. It has been nearly a decade since I lived there, but I haven’t forgotten it: 96146.

Kangchenjunga Ski Expedition Update 5

Fredrick Ericsson and Jorgen Aamot wait on the weather to summit Kangchenjunga.

Base Camp Life

At the moment we are stuck in base camp and all we can do is to wait for the weather to change. I’m getting a bit of déjà vu from last year on Dhaulagiri. Acclimatization climbs passed by without any problems but as soon as I‘m ready for the summit the weather changes totally. Last year it was a week of snowfall that stopped me, this year the jet stream has taken over the mountain. For about a week now it’s been around 90 km/h wind up on 8000 meters and that is no place for us to be in those conditions.
