Today, was the best day of the year at Squaw Valley. We’ll be hard pressed to get a better day than today this season... It’s incredible how much this one storm filled in Squaw. Granite is looking fat, The Fingers are in (except for the avy debris), & the Chimney is READY TO ROLL! SQUAW WAS WILD TODAY: 1. Very deep, progressive, perfect for hucking snow. 2. Enormous lift lines. 2. More avalanches than I’ve ever seen at Squaw. 3. A Skier dude who got buried off Ice Goddess (and scared the shit outta me). ...It was an intense day by any standard...

Today, was the best day of the year at Squaw Valley.  We’ll be hard pressed to get a better day than today this season…

It’s incredible how much this one storm filled in Squaw.  Granite is looking fat, The Fingers are in (except for the avy debris), & the Chimney is READY TO ROLL.

SQUAW WAS WILD TODAY:

1.  Very deep, progressive, perfect-for-hucking Snow.  

2.  Enormous lift lines.  

2.  More avalanches than I’ve ever seen at Squaw.  

3.  A Skier dude who got buried off the Ice Goddess cliff on KT-22 (and scared the sh%t outta me).  

…It was an intense day by any standard…

KT-22 Looking Gorgeous today

It was also a crazy fun day.  The snow we had today is my favorite snow of all-time.  Dense at the bottom, progressively getting lighter as you approach the surface.  A progressive snowpack perfectly designed for hucking…and there was plenty of hucking today at Squaw.

WHAT GOT SKIED ON KT-22 TODAY:

– McConkey’s (Eagle’s Nest) [although the tracks weren’t too purty]

– Middle Knuckle (landing was hideous and it ate the guy up)

– My Air (dude got worked on the funky landing)

– Coleman’s Alternate (this thing’s modus operandi is devouring skiers)

– Hatchett line (skied well by a coupla dudicals)

Biggest line I’ve ever seen at KT-22 this morning

A ton more Squallywood lines went down today.  The boys were out and they were Teeing off.

The Palisades remained closed but the Chimney is in.  This week could be a scary big week at Squaw.

Yes, you are reading this post correctly:  SQUAW VALLEY IS BACK!!!
