A buried outhouse, so we're talking a good eight feet of snow in this shot at the Robinson Flat trailhead, which sits at approx 7,000' & 30 miles into the course. High point on the course is ~8,500', so it would appear that significant snow is almost guaranteed through much of the early going this year. Current snow depth in Squaw Valley is a reported 6.5 feet. This is good news for Colorado boys and girls who've been trudging through crap like this all winter.
Of course, there will be significant melt through the next four and a half weeks, but it certainly looks like we'll be in for a good amount of trudge action.
