Bloods Ridge


Access from Reno, NV:
Mount Rose Highway south to parking area on east side of road just north of Mount Rose Pass
Drive Time: ~26 min

Erin, Leah & I went for a quick snowshoe/tour in the Mount Rose area. This is a good spot for Renoites because of its close proximity to the city. There was plenty of dense powder up there.  Later in the day, I summitted Mount Vaca, and was able to drive mostly up the mountain.


Access from Arnold, CA:
CA 4 east
207 north to Bear Valley Ski Area

I skinned up the south side of the resort to the summit of Bloods Ridge, then descended to the Bloods Ridge-"Corral Ridge" saddle on dense, fresh powder. I skinned up the long southeast ridge of "Corral Ridge". I descended back into the ski area on more fresh powder, then rode the lifts.
