Unofficial has been doing some intense investigating this past week about the potential non-opening of Squaw’s bike park. Namely, we’ve been riding chairlifts and jabbering with random people. But, we did talk with one person who works at the bike park and it sounded like he/she was out of a job this summer.
Why is the Bike Park gonna be closed? Because there’s too much damn snow! Have you been to Squaw lately? There is still so much snow up there that it’s hard to understand. Right now, people are predicting that we’ll be skiing on this year’s snow next year. It would really take a miracle for all the upper mountain snow to melt away before mid August. Kinda funny that the one thing we dream about all winter could sabotage our summer bike plans.
On that note, we don’t know a whole lot about Squaw’s Bike Park outside of the fact that it had been closed for 10 years before opening again last summer. How was it? Any good? As good as Northstar’s Bike Park?
Squaw’s Bike Park used to be home to the Mountain Bike World Cup, Fat Tire Festivals, and Downhill Mania.
