Snow shoe to Mt Judah, Near Donner Lake, Tahoe area
One weekend early in March I took a drive up to Tahoe area to attempt a summit on Mt Judah, which is one of the peaks that makes up Sugar Bowl ski resort. After renting snow shoes from Truckee I headed up to park in the Sugar Bowl ski field parking lot and looked for the approach. Simple enough and after a steep climb to a ridge then traverse and a last push I made it to the top ridge line. From there is was simple enough to traverse the relatively flat ridge across to Mt Judah. Great weather and epic scenery. All and all a wonderful little mission. That night i caught up with an friend and finished the day with some beers.
