A hard freeze on Saturday night left Squaw with some prime spring skiing conditions on Sunday morning. Headwall opened for the first time in a week and had perfectly smooth snow from the 12” snow storm that rolled through Tahoe on Tuesday night.
The coolest thing that happened yesterday, May 22nd, 2011, was patrol opening The Palisades. They let us hike up from the top of Headwall chair. The hike had one pretty sketchy part. Check out the pic above.
After skiing, on my way thru Oakdale, CA (cowboy capital of the world), I ended up at the Chocolate Festival and saw some of the most beautiful cars I’d ever seen. Like this one. Yesterday ended up being a pretty sweet day in the life. Great spring skiing at Squaw. An awesome Chocolate Festival in Oakdale. Then swimming and diving board flipping in Modesto. California rules. (writing in italics under a picture makes me feel like I can write about anything and it isn’t really ‘part’ of the article.)
