Sierra Snow 2019! Back country skiing in the Castle Peak area
The start to the winter in California's Sierra Nevada was rather slow, but picked up in mid January and really kicked in in February. In the Donner Pass / Castle Peak area there were more than 7 meters of snowfall in February, with some daily totals of more than a meter. At this point the cumulative snow fall at Donner Pass is...

Castle Peak - The southeast ridge is way more of an adventure than expected

Andesite - und Castle Peak: Schneeschuh- und Kraxelvergnügen in Kaliforniens Sierra Nevada

Neben der Sierra Nevada (welche eine stattliche Länge von 640 km und Breite von 80 bis 130 km aufweist) gibt es im Süden Kaliforniens auch noch die San...
