Miracle March is working out, huh? 166 inches in March at Squaw? Before March 1st, Squaw had only gotten 142” all season. We have more than doubled our annual snow total just from the March snows.
This weekend is looking better than they were saying earlier. They were saying rain. Now, they’re saying it’s going to change to all snow on Saturday and leave a foot plus above 7,000 feet. We’re okay with that. Miracle March keeps keepin’ on!
