Hands down, it was the best day of the season at Squaw/Alpine (so far). We were greeted with a beautiful bluebird pow day and some pretty massive lines on KT and the Funi. With all of the meaningful upper mountain terrain closed the day before, there was a good 2 feet of fresh waiting for us above 8,000 feet. After some fresh turns on West Face and the Alternates, we pushed for higher ground on Headwall and Granite Chief.
Headwall was holding some nice, wintery snow on all sides, with my personal favorite being Hogsback. Granite was scheduled for an 11am opening, and we had a great run in the less sun exposed terrain skiers right of the chair. The sun exposed terrain in the Granite Glades was too sticky icky by the time we skied it just before noon.
After a full day of sun and pow, the clouds started rolling in again towards the end of the day and sprinkled some light refills on us. Monday should be a nice break before another pow day on Tuesday and more to come all week!
