The White Ribbon of Death….. Squaw Valley is OPEN!
Squaw Valley opened today with top to bottom skiing off the Red Dog chair. The skiing was limited to where the snow guns had fired with very thin coverage off trail. Fewer skiers on the hill today then most expected. Lines on the hill were not bad but the lines at the season pass office were a mess. All and all a good opening day for Squaw.
Conditions on the trail were good with few rocks and other base layer obstructions poking out.
The weather held out this morning but as the day progressed cloud cover started to roll in.
