Help!  We had planned to do a 5 day backpacking trip in the Desolation Wilderness area near Lake Tahoe the 2nd week of July.  But I've been told that it likely won't be possible due to the massive amount of snow they got this winter.  We are all flying into Reno, doing our backpacking trip, then have a condo reserved on Lake Tahoe.  So we need to stay in the Reno/Taho-ish area.  We need to come up with a plan B, but don't know the area.  Any ideas on where to start looking that is within a 2 hour drive of Tahoe, that doesn't have tons of snow?!?!  Thanks for your help.  We have less than 2 weeks to come up with a new plan.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
