Squaw Valley recently received around 4-5″ of fresh snow right in time for the christmas crowds to enjoy at least a little bit of soft wintry snow. Everyone I know in Tahoe was hoping for a storm before christmas, and though it was small, we got one. It certainly spiced some things up again for a few days. The day started out slow. I rode Squaw 1 from the village and made my way to Siberia. Siberia was alright, the groomer off the top was pretty fun, but it was shaved off and a bit icy at the top. I got a call from a buddy that he was at Shirley, so I headed over to Gold Coast and met up with him at the top of Shirley where he proceeded to tell me about a sick double off Granite.
