A Look Back: Today was literally too deep. I got stuck twice on my first run going Nose to Fingers. Anywhere that was fresh was painfully deep. Why must it snow soooo much here? Can’t we just get a nice happy 2 feet like other ‘normal’ places? Does it have to always be 6 feet at Squaw. Do we HAVE to be that much awesomer than everywhere else?
Yes. Yes we do. It’s because this is California and we get more snow here than anyone. Oh, Sierra Cement did I hear someone say? Not this time f$%ko! Last night we got 22 inches of 4% blower on top of the 40+ inches of 5% we already had! I’ve never had a deeper ski day in my life…anywhere. We were skiing every inch of that 55 inch storm total today and it was hilarious.
The only setback to California is that there are a lot of humans. KT line was the worst I’ve ever seen today with 40 minute waits at times. In a word, brutal. But, every time you got on the lift you instantly forgot about the heinous line and started drooling about the snorkeling adventure you were about to have. One helluva day today. And tomorrow literally might be even too deeperer.
A WINTER STORM WARNING FOR HEAVY SNOW REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 9 AM PST SATURDAY. * ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 8 TO 14 INCHES AT LAKE LEVEL...WITH 1 TO 2 FEET ABOVE 7000 FEET.
