Was skiing that day at what was Sierra Ski Ranch. There were only a few resorts open around the lake. I remember some fantastic deep powder in the trees. Had a couple good friends with me who somehow managed to get to SLT that week. Will always remember the sad news of the event that day. The survivor story is a testament of our will to survive.
Had a pass at Kirkwood that year which was impossible to get to as they reported roughly 20’ of snow over the 10 day storm and a record 780” that year. Alpine opened their resort to all pass holders later that spring as a way of saying “thank you” to the Tahoe community for their help and support with the tragic loss of life.
