We’re hoping they change this schedule by tomorrow morning. But, for the time being, Squaw has Headwall & Silverado OFF THE SCHEDULE for tomorrow. They likely have a good reason, but it’ll still be a bummer if Headwall is closed tomorrow during such a busy weekend. (NO ONE DRIVES 400 MILES THROUGH THE NIGHT TO MAKE FIRST TRACKS ON MT. ORDINARY. – Squaw Valley USA)
SCHEDULED TO BE CLOSED TOMORROW:
2. Olympic Lady
3. Cornice II
5. Squaw One
Having Silverado off the schedule is standard (tough to get open after a storm and requires a lot of resources), but having Headwall down breaks the flow of the mountain as you can’t get to the upper mountain via chairlifts.
Do you think Headwall is broken, rimed up, wind damaged? Hope not. We are just hoping Headwall is open tomorrow and everything is Hunky Dory (go ahead, click on it, we know you’re curious).
Squaw One is also off the schedule so, if this schedule turns out to be true, we’ll have to ride the Funi or Cable Car to get up top. And on a busy day, that’ll suck.
Have no doubts: tomorrow will be NUTS at Squaw. Many humans will be present and ready to get the goods. The snow is going to be epic. We’ve already gotten 8+ inches on the valley floor.
Squaw, could you please open Cornice II and Olympic Lady and Squaw One? That’d Help a TON.
We can’t wait to get out there and tear up this perfect new snow. Looks like we could get a lot more snow tonight:
* ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 3 TO 6 INCHES…WITH 5 TO 10 INCHES ABOVE 7000 FEET. HIGHEST AMOUNTS WILL OCCUR ALONG AND WEST OF HIGHWAY 89. – noaa.gov (updated at 4:10pm)
