Over the weekend, Squaw Valley got 10″ of new snow which was enough to get the Shirley Lake chairlift back open. Skiers and riders at Squaw went nuts and had some real fun. Squaw Valley made a video to capture what went down and they make it look good.
Squaw Valley currently has 4 good lifts running: Red Dog, Squaw Creek, Funitel, & Shirley Lake. KT-22 has not yet opened this season and it’s February.
Squaw has only gotten 38″ – 69″ of snow this winter.
After 2″ of rain and around 10″ of new snow, the crowds were out en mass at Squaw this Saturday to get into some of the newly opened goods. For the first time since Christmas Week, Shirley Lake and Siberia started spinning, servicing some of the Upper Mountain goods. Shirley Lake held better coverage than the last time it spun, with most of the lurking rocks relatively avoidable. Siberia was also harboring better coverage, with the pepper field to enter Siberia Bowl finally covered (for the most part). – SnowBrains.com Squaw report from February 1st, 2014
