Report from Sunday, February 28, 2021
Today was a Spring-like day to end February and the snow was smooth like butter on the backside of Alpine Meadows, CA.
After Saturday’s colder temps and blustery winds, the morning snow started off firm.
Throughout the day we followed the sun during the freeze-thaw cycle to find California corn snow.
Sunspot, accessible from Summit Six, skied well starting around 11 am.
We headed to Sherwood Express in the afternoon and found some great panels of south-facing snow that were softened to perfection in the sun.
The views of Lake Tahoe were just incredible today and the temperature was ideal. There was only a slight breeze.
We enjoyed the day with some friends we had not ridden with in months.
Although I’m hoping for a late-season pow day, it felt great to get a preview of Spring skiing.
It’s hard to beat Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows, the Spring skiing capital, this time of year.
Although we showed up in the late morning hours, there was plenty of parking with the holiday crowds gone for the season.
We took a short break at The Chalet in the late afternoon to hydrate and grab a bite.
With lots of coverage and seemingly endless terrain, I cannot wait to get back up there more skiing in the California sun.
