Totally unhelpful to spam the name of a town at 7,000 ft.
He asked a question, he got an answer, what is your problem?

The outlet of Lake Tahoe is at 6200 feet, Truckee is down stream from that, think about it.

I've been to Truckee this week--beautiful mountain areas around there, just too far of a drive from Bay area, and gets cold at that elevation, it's going to be snowing this week I think already. I'm trying to stay down below 3000 feet to avoid much snow cover.

Snow keeps out the riff raff, there are places in Truckee where folks have lived in RV's or travel trailers for years.

He wants lower elevation.
He stated that in the original post.
He doesn't want a lot of snow.
And anyone who doesn't want a lot of snow does not belong in Truckee!
And, btw, Truckee is full of "riff-raff".

Lower is relative, so is "a lot of snow" btw, Truckee is full of riff raff? Huh, in my 40 years living there, I must have missed them.

Truckee is full of mtn bikers, runners, skiers , sno mo'ers, writers, photographers, More Olympic medal holders live in Truckee that any where else I have
heard of.

I should think anyone claiming some sort of relationship with Dev, would not criticize others.

I'm originally from Truckee.
When i was born and lived there it was a very cool place.
Well, not anymore.
Speaking generally, i do not like the vibe of the people ... locals and all of the upper echelon idiots aggressively running around the area and the full-of-themselves, attitudinal pseudo hippies with big egos and cold hearts.
I find the town generally obnoxious ... generally speaking.
Technically, they are not riff-raff but to me, they are not a pleasant lot ... again, speaking generally.
I think i'm someone who prefers riff-raff .. they're less pretentious.
But i'm biased and i have attitude about special places that have been ruined by too many stupid humans.
I've lived in a number of places where that has happened and live in a place now where it happened.
So, pardon my snarkyness.
And oh my god, do you have a problem admitting that you're wrong?
In his original post he stated that he wanted to live with elevation between 1500-3000 ft. and wants "only little snow in winter".
Yes, everything is relative but Truckee = a lot of snow ... no relativism about it unless you're comparing it to .... to what? the Himalayas?

Honestly, I didn't feel like I'd fit in in either Tuckee or Tahoe City, even if I wanted to live my weekends that high/far from SF Bay. I noticed both "riff-raff" (in a bad way) and folks flashing how much money they have in these areas.
I'm pretty positive I want to be below 3000 ft, want very, very little snow. Within 3 hour radius from Bay. Local conditions vary, but 3000 is pretty much a winter "snowy" line, on average, I've been talking about it to rangers in different national forests. There's a nice belt of mixed conifers and hardwood forests where it's not much snow, above oakland and hardwood forests. Once you get all-conifers, it mostly means "quite snowy in winter". Can be lots of snow at lower elevations too, but it got to be La Nina year or something...
