Today is gonna be crazy good. Squaw got 13-18 inches of new snow from the storm yesterday and last night. Winds are forecasted to be relatively mellow and the sun is even supposed to make an appearance. Headwall, Silverado, Squaw One, Olympic Lady, & Cornice II are still OFF the Schedule for today. It’s gonna be busy and crowded, especially if you’re trying to get to the upper mountain as you’ll only have the Funitel or Cable Car to get there. 13”-18” of New Snow @ Squaw | Headwall & Granite Open @ 10:00 & 11:00 | Blue Skies Right Now! | Unofficial Networks
