With the colossal amount of snow that fell this week on Squaw Valley the seasonal snow total is up to 55% of the resorts season snow average. In fact, Squaw is just 9″ behind the snow total on this date in 2010. That season Squaw Valley went on to receive 810″ of snow on the upper mountain.

    The crying, bitching, complaining, etc etc is getting really old. The skiing is awesome and instead of talking about how great it is everyone is complaining about something. We need to all take a breath and start being more positive about the ski area we all love. Reminds me of the democratic party, everyone complains but there is no way they are ever gonna leave.

    It’s one of the best Christmas/New Year periods ever at Squaw. Silverado open in December, busy but not too crowded, hero snow all over the mountain, an avalanche on KT that did not have any fatalities, and and overall good vibe. Lots to be thankful for.
    Sadness for a dedicated patroller at Alpine and respect and good thoughts to his friends and family.

      I can’t recall ever having this much access so early in the season on both hills.
      Now, if we can just get BA to get us some more snow :)
