Squaw rainbow today

This rainbow was sadly only 3 days too late for St. Paddy’s day, but we’ll take it.

We were hoping for the Chimney today, but that ended up being very far from reality.

REALITY @ SQUAW VALLEY TODAY:

– Rainy drizzle at the top of the mountain and at the bottom of the mountain at times

– No visibility on upper mountain

– Palisades closed (and for good reason)

– KT-22 was still very fun skiing

  • Not a single groomed run on KT
  • West Face was soft and flowy
  • North facing slopes were still good 
– Very sticky at the bottom of the mountain by 10:45am
– I went and checked out the HOT TUB under Adrenaline Rock…who was that!?  Badass.

LEARN MORE AOBUT RAINBOWS:

raindrop prism

– If the sun is higher than 42 degrees in the sky, rainbows are not visible (unless your in a plane or way up high)

– Rainbows are centered on the observer’s head’s shadow

– Sea water rainbows have a smaller radius than fresh water rainbows due to sea water’s higher refractive index

– Rainbows don’t exist where you see them, they are completely reliant on the observer’s and the sun’s position

– Rainbows always appear opposite of the sun with respect to the observer

– The interior of a rainbow is always brighter than the exterior
