We were shocked to find it snowing in Squaw Valley this morning. Bombs are going off, Squaw is claiming 10” of new snow up top and we’re looking out the window at wet, heavy snow in the air. Judging from how the skiing was yesterday morning, we’re confident saying that it’s going to be fun the first 2 hours of the day. The forecast is still calling for high snow levels (7,500-8,000 ft) today. So, things are likely gonna get soggy real fast up there.
