Silverado only opened for the first time this season two fridays ago. Today is March 29th and we are getting our first Silverado powder day of the year. How’s it gonna be? It’s gonna be good. Silvy is arguably some of the best terrain at Squaw and boys haven’t had a crack at it all year. Some people are gonna be doing some sketchy stuff in there today. Can’t wait to watch the mayhem. 1st SILVERADO Powder Day of 2011/12 @ Squaw Valley is Today | Unofficial Networks
