6,500 feet in the Northern Sierra, summer days are usually warm
and the nights cool. Swimming is best from mid-July through
August (although we have seen hardy souls sliding down snowbanks
into the lake in late May, and others taking long swims on windy
and overcast afternoons in late October). Sometimes in August,
there are thunderstorms. Always bring some warm clothes.
the spring (May and June) there is often snow on the ground, but
the weather is usually fine. In September and particularly
October, autumn storms are possible, and may bring snow.
weather is similar to that of the Tahoe/Truckee area.
