Squaw saw 2-4″ of new snow yesterday. There were some fun turns to be had, but it was foggy, visibility was tough, and the skiing was mostly dust on crust with some soft spots and good turns here and there.
Silverado, The Palisades, and Granite Chief Peak were closed yesterday and they all opened today. Silverado was good in spots – where was smooth underneath, at least. The Palisades were good, albeit scratchy underneath. That didn’t stop the boys from hitting a few lines in the Chimney: Chimney Sweep, Centerline, Easy Street.
The Fingers also got a couple lines put down today in the better light: Engerbretsen’s, The Box, Ice Fall, Banana.
Granite Chief Peak was scratchy up top but had a sweet spot about a 1/3 of the way down that lasted for a handful or turns or so.
