I kind of never understood it either. I know Tanner has been out in the area a bunch (especially in the past), but the ski scene there is NOWHERE close to the snowboard scene.
I love Tahoe though. As far as "sierra cement" goes, in the 4 years I have lived there and the past 3 years that I have gone back to film on multiple trips, I think I have run into "sierra cement" problems maybe a half dozen times.
Sure the snow isnt some like 3% water content stuff, but it really is not bad.
Also, you just have to know where to go to avoid the sun baked stuff. I cant say I have really had much of a problem finding good snow even 5+ days after a storm.
Tahoe is the sickest. A good majority of our backcountry footage over the years comes from Tahoe and the surrounding areas. More then anywhere else.
People might kill me on here because they dont know much about the Sierras or just love Utah, but from a lot of experience...
