Curious.... how does one with a dog go skiing? Do they even make skiis for dogs or does he just run really fast in the snow to keep up with you?

Non-dog owner checking in lol

None of the campgrounds in that area are open:

Silver Lake is probably closest to the highway and may be accessible.

I'd bet they just got a ton of snow in the back country.
Might be difficult to even get back in there somewhere.

However, I applaud your efforts and if I didn't have previous plans I'd be right there with you. Except the skiing part of it anyway.

Have fun, be safe!

I'm bit too worry. I still work for the forest service for another months and have insiders access. And it helps to know the area pretty well. The 88 side is where I've worked the past 2 years I know some decent areas

I was in the Fallen Leaf Lake area two weeks ago and really liked it there. Although we didn't ski there but instead snowshoed around the lake.

Just drive in towards the back and park your rig to the side and hike in. Not sure about camping around the lake but for sure you can do some snowshoeing and a little exploring around the lake. Super serene and relaxing.

Whatever you decide.. have fun and be safe! :wave:

Cool!

Um, can I borrow your keys for an hour?
:D

It's great that you know the area well; we definitely need to get another run together ... soon.

I have so many trails and camp grounds way-pointed. I cant wait till they all open up. I also would like to explore the Rubicon, the relatively easy parts of course.

Yes, sometimes.
The Sierra Mountains are very open with more trails than you can imagine.
Plenty of dispersed camping.

However, in winter, knowing whether or not campgrounds are open is a good indication of accessibility to the area via motorized vehicle.
