Squaw Valley ski resort in California is still open and still fun.
Hiking up the Palisades and skiing Main Chute was spicy yesterday. North Bowl was great, as per usual.
For just banging out laps and having fun, Shirley Lake was great. I had to leave at 11am yesterday and I was bummed. Shirley was still really fun.
