While a week with day time highs in the mid 50’s has done nothing good for Squaw, the skiing is still surprisingly ripping. The majority of the mountain is still nice and smooth, and with high day time temperatures and low nightly temperatures we are in the midst of a nice little corn cycle. The turns off of Headwall and KT were by far the best, and we even have a legitimate park now off of Gold Coast.
- Woman’s Downhill off KT
- Hog’s Back off Headwall
- Squaw finally has a real jump line off Gold Coast
- Majority of Granite Chief is closed off, including Corkscrew and Split Tree
- The Mountain Run is getting ever thinner
- It still isn’t snowing
Woman’s Downhill and Chute 75 on KT had the most consistently soft and smooth turns, while Hog’s Back and The Face of Headwall were also skiing quite well. Squaw was also able to farm snow from below Mainline Pocket in order to build a fun looking 4 jump line (good for the park kids, bad for those of us who still wanted to ski the Pocket). It was grey bird yesterday and it’s looking like today will be a carbon copy.
It’s time to sell the snow blower, take of the studded tires, and do some serious snow dancing because things still do not look good for Tahoe. We may be receiving a small resemblance of a storm on Sunday/Monday, but then it’s back to sunshine and highs in 40s by the middle of next week.
