You’ll never guess...The rain last night and this morning made the snow really bad. The “fresh” stuff left the most painful memories. It felt like it was trying to rip your knees off. I like to call this “ACL Snow” because it is doing everything it can to try to modify that ACL of yours into a dual commodity. The snow was very sticky all over the mountain. Only where the snow had been skied up did your knees stand a chance. The only “less dull” spot was Chute 75 on KT-22. It was steep and smooth enough on the top to allow some speed and some fun turns. Down low, tho, it was sticky and bumpy and wierd. “Rip Your Knees Off Snow” @ Squaw Today | Photo Tour | Unofficial Networks

Sticky icky icky on KT today

You’ll never guess…The rain last night and this morning made the snow really bad.  The “fresh” stuff left the most painful memories.  It felt like it was trying to rip your knees off.  I like to call this “ACL Snow” because it is doing everything it can to try to modify that ACL of yours into a dual commodity. 

The snow was very sticky all over the mountain.  Only where the snow had been skied up did your knees stand a chance.

The only “less dull” spot was Chute 75 on KT-22.  It was steep and smooth enough on the top to allow some speed and some fun turns. Down low, tho, it was sticky and bumpy and wierd.  The cat track was a smidge slow, as you can imagine.
