December 8, 2014 Paint-Out at Tahoe Meadows

Tahoe Meadows Mt. Rose Hwy facing East - this was taken last year in the fall
We have fresh snow on the mountains.  If you are into snow - please join us!  Hopefully the winds will be calm.  Forecast so far says no precip on this day.

Date:        December 8, 2014 (Monday)
Time:          10:00 am
Place:          Tahoe Meadows at the top of Mt. Rose Hwy 431
Amenities:      none - I think the restroom at the trail head might be closed, as is the access drive to it
Parking:          on the highway
Where to meet:    the south side of the highway where the stairs are and the trails

What to bring:
  • snow boots (maybe snowshoes?  x-country skis?)
  • warm clothes, gloves, hats, ear covers?
  • sunglasses, hat
  • camera
  • art gear that is portable 
  • Food and drink
  • cell phone
  • possibly art umbrella
Might be this much snow - this was last winter

Directions:  if you are new to the area:
From Reno or Carson City:  Take 395/580 to the Mt. Rose Hwy (431), go up to the summit and as you continue downhill you will see a large meadow before you.  At the level area, park on either the right or left hand side of the hwy on the shoulder.  We will be meeting on the south side (your left), but you can explore either side of the hwy and paint.
From Incline Village:  Go up Mt. Rose Hwy (431) towards Reno.  Before you get to the summit, park on the shoulder at the level area of the meadow.  There are two sets of stairs to go down into the meadow on your right.
